  2. bSensitivity to cell-free supernatants of L. gasseri EV1461, assayed by the agar drop diffusion test method. Sensitivity scale: + (<10 mm), ++ (10–11 mm), +++ (12–13 mm), and ++++ (14–15 mm), reflecting the degree of sensitivity according to the diameter of the inhibition halo (in brackets); -, resistant
