    Abstract / Zusammenfassung

    From these results it may be concluded that the studied strain modifies the microbiota of sows and piglets with beneficial effects for the host animal, which were in the present experiment not reflected in the animals performance. Secondary or direct functions of epithelial tissues and immunological parameters were modified by the probiotic. Therefore, these probiotic has to be considered as an potential element in a feeding and management system of pig production without the use of antibiotic feed additives.
    Whether or not these finding on the mode of action of E. faecium NCIMB 10415 can be applied to other micro-organisms has to be proved in further studies.
