Comment and answer to the paper entitled Probiotic Biotherapy for Eradication of a Potential Pathogen in a Commercial Rat Breeding Colony
With interest I read the paper by Collinder E, Bergsted J, Persson A-K, Norin E and Midtvedt T: Probiotic biotherapy for eradication of a potential pathogen in a commercial rat breeding colony. Scand. J. Lab. Animal Sci. 2008, 35, 199-201.
The paper describes a study in which Lactobacillus reuteri was dosed to rats to clear them from (unspecified) Lancefield group G ß-haemolytic streptococci that were detected in vaginal samples.
