Effect of Prebiotic Inulin and Initial Probiotic Optical Density Variations on Lactobacillus Reuteri and Bifidobacterium Animalis Subsp. Lactis Sustainability in an In Vitro Plaque Biofilm Model
The present research sought to establish a viable in vitro model by which to evaluate methods of enhancing the sustainability of two probiotic species, Lactobacillus reuteri and Bifidobacterium animalis subsp. lactis, within the oral microbiota. Additionally, this pilot study evaluated the longitudinal microbiological effects of those probiotics on the composition of a cultured plaque biofilm.
