Table 3 In vitro relative effects of lactobacilli isolates against biofilm formation and elastolytic activity of Pseudomonas aeruginosa PAO1

From: Screening of Lactobacillus spp. for the prevention of Pseudomonas aeruginosa pulmonary infections

Biofilm formation* Elastolytic activity*
Control 100% Control 100%
L. fermentum ES.A.2 95% L. fermentum K.C6.3.1D 63%
L. fermentum ES.F.115 93% L. zeae Od.76 64%
L. fermentum ES.A.6a 88% L. fermentum K.V9.3.2B 62%
L. fermentum ES.A.1a 88% L. fermentum K.V9.3.2C 62%
L. paracasei ES.D.88 84% L. fermentum K.C6.3.1E 53%
  1. *Results are expressed as a percentage of biofilm formation or elastolytic activity related to control (P. aeruginosa PAO1 without lactobacilli). Only significantly active strains compared to control are displayed (LSD test, p < 0.05 for biofilm formation and p < 0.001 for elastolytic activity).
