Table 1 Total counts of microaerophilic bacteria and bacterial isolates displaying antimycobacterial activity from faecal samples of the 26 badgers selected for this study

From: Lactic acid Bacteria isolated from European badgers (Meles meles) reduce the viability and survival of Bacillus Calmette-Guerin (BCG) vaccine and influence the immune response to BCG in a human macrophage model
