Probiotics are becoming an increasingly popular tool for treating diseases, and foodborne diseases are no exception. We all know that common food poisoning, intestinal infectious diseases, zoonotic infectious diseases, parasitic diseases, and diseases caused by chemical toxic and harmful substances all belong to the category of foodborne diseases. These illnesses are a significant public health concern worldwide, and probiotics have become a promising solution. Probiotics can reduce the degree of foodborne diseases by enhancing patients' intestinal immune function, interfering with pathogen infection, and maintaining the activity of intestinal beneficial microorganisms. In this article, we'll delve into different probiotic examples used in the treatment of foodborne diseases, exploring the role of live biotherapeutics in the process of discovery for a foodborne disease cure.
One such popular probiotic is Lactobacillus acidophilus known to mend the gut and counter diarrhea and disorders of the digestive system, thanks to the production of lactic acid. This probiotic also lessens the hazard of antibiotic-associated diarrhea.
Bifidobacterium bifidum is another probiotic that plays a significant role in balancing gut bacteria. By assisting digestion and strengthening the immune system, Bifidobacterium bifidum is a warrior effective in averting bacterial infections like Salmonella and Listeria infections.
Saccharomyces boulardii, meanwhile, takes on foodborne illnesses like diarrhea caused by bacterial infections. It does so by preventing the proliferation of harmful bacteria while stimulating the growth of beneficial ones.
Moreover, probiotics can also thwart the onset of foodborne diseases, with Lactobacillus rhamnosus playing a vital role in reducing the incidence and duration of rotavirus-related diarrhea in children. The Lactobacillus plantarum strain also combats foodborne bacteria Listeria, which can cause severe illness in vulnerable populations.
Live biotherapeutics are a new and promising area of research for the treatment of foodborne diseases. Live biotherapeutics are viable microorganisms that provide therapeutic benefits when delivered to the host. Unlike traditional drugs, live biotherapeutics can adjust and adapt to the host's microbiota, increasing the chances of a successful outcome.
To achieve this biomedical breakthrough, we must first identify bacterial strains optimal for treating specific diseases, with Lactobacillus and Bifidobacterium being most promising. Then, clinical trials must validate their safety and efficacy before it can be made accessible to the public.
While still in its infancy, live biotherapeutics provide more targeted treatment, reducing the probability of antibiotic resistance. Additionally, they aid in promoting flourishing gut bacterium and boosting the immune system, providing enduring solutions to foodborne diseases.
