Live probiotics protect intestinal epithelial cells from the effects of infection with enteroinvasive
Escherichia coli (EIEC)

The colonic epithelium maintains a life long reciprocally beneficial interaction with the colonic microbiota.
Disruption is associated with mucosal injury.
We hypothesised that probiotics may limit epithelial damage induced by enteroinvasive pathogens, and promote
Human intestinal epithelial cell lines (HT29/cl.19A and Caco-2) were exposed to enteroinvasive Escherichia coli
(EIEC 029:NM), and/or probiotics (Streptococcus thermophilus (ST), ATCC19258, and Lactobacillus acidophilus (LA),
ATCC4356). Infected cells and controls were assessed for transepithelial resistance, chloride secretory responses,
alterations in cytoskeletal and tight junctional proteins, and responses to epidermal growth factor (EGF) stimulation.
Exposure of cell monolayers to live ST/LA, but not to heat inactivated ST/LA, significantly limited adhesion, invasion,
and physiological dysfunction induced by EIEC. Antibiotic killed ST/LA reduced adhesion somewhat but were less effective
in limiting the consequences of EIEC invasion of cell monolayers. Furthermore, live ST/LA alone increased transepithelial
resistance, contrasting markedly with the fall in resistance evoked by EIEC infection, which could also be blocked by live
ST/LA. The effect of ST/LA on resistance was accompanied by maintenance (actin, ZO-1) or enhancement (actinin, occludin) of
cytoskeletal and tight junctional protein phosphorylation. ST/LA had no effect on chloride secretion by themselves but
reversed the increase in basal secretion evoked by EIEC. EIEC also reduced the ability of EGF to activate its receptor, which
was reversed by ST/LA.
Live ST/LA interact with intestinal epithelial cells to protect them from the deleterious effect of EIEC via mechanisms that
include, but are not limited to, interference with pathogen adhesion and invasion. Probiotics likely also enhance the barrier
function of naive epithelial cells not exposed to any pathogen.
Comments from healthcare professionals who have used LB17:
"... I have been using different probiotic blends over the years. The best I found by far is LB17. The ... more
strands of different friendly bateria, the better the probiotic. It has been my experience that LB17 covers every area of body fluids from
the sinuses to the reproductive organs which give LB17 a great advantage over any other probiotic. My patients love the small size of the
capsules and I have used LB17 with great success on open wounds and stubborn acne by ... applying ... directly to the wound.
... be happy to recommend LB17 to any health practitioner."..

friends who all wish to purchase more of it..."
