Abstract

The effect of Lactobacillus casei, Lactobacillus plantarum and the combination of both on Enterotoxigenic Escherichia coli was determined. Initial and final concentrations of ETEC subjected to treatments were compared. It was elucidated that Lactobacillus casei and Lactobacillus plantarum inhibited the growth of ETEC at almost the same significant level (p<0.05). When these two probiotic treatments were combined, a significant decrease in growth of ETEC was observed, as compared to individual treatments (p<0.05). Positive and negative controls were also performed. With these results, it was concluded that there is a synergistic effect between Lactobacillus casei and Lactobacillus plantarum against ETEC, which can be very useful for further studies in search for alternative treatments to ETEC-induced diseases.
