 Abstract
Effects of feeding seven strains of Lactobacillus spp. on the level of cell glutathione sulphydryl (GSH) in spleen, liver and erythrocyte of the ICR mice and on the level of immunoglobulin M in the spleen were determined. The level of cell glutathione sulphydryl in the spleen was dependent on the strain of Lactobacilli, it was significantly higher in the mice fed with L. casei CU 001, L. rhamnosus CU 02, L. acidophilus NCFM and L. casei YIT9018 (p>0.05). The level of cell glutathione sulphydryl in the liver increased in the mice fed with L. casei YIT9018, L. acidophilus NCFM, L. casei CU 001 (p>0.05), the level of glutathione sulphydryl of the erythrocyte showed significantly higher value than control mice when fed with L. acidophilus NCFM, L. casei YIT9018, L. casei CU 001 (p>0.05). The level of immunoglobulin M in the spleen of ICR mice expressed as the plaque count revealed significantly higher value than the control mice when fed with L. casei CU 001, L. acidophilus NCFM and L.casei YIT 9018.
