Potential antimicrobial effects of human lactoferrin against oral infection with Listeria monocytogenes in mice
Journal of Medical Microbiology
Listeria monocytogenes is a food-borne pathogen that causes serious listeriosis in humans. Antimicrobial effects of human lactoferrin (hLF) against L. monocytogenes have been clearly demonstrated in in vitro studies. However, in vivo studies have not been reported yet. This study investigated whether the oral administration of hLF could inhibit oral infection of listeria in BALB/c mice. The MICs for several strains of L. monocytogenes were determined, and the most sensitive strain was used fordoi:10.1099/jmm.0.45918-0 pmid:16192436 fatcat:ikdezxeplfdsxbkohbkbnwtewm
