Antibacterial Activities of B. polyfermenticus SCD Against Pathogenic Bacteria and Effects on Animals and Humans

Bacillus polyfermenticus SCD의 병원성 세균에 대한 항균성과 동물 및 임상에 미치는 영향

  • Published : 2004.02.01


Bacillus polyfermenticus SCD which is commonly called as Bisroot (equation omitted) has been appropriately used for the treatment of long-term intestinal disorder's. This strain strongly inhibited against methicillin resistance Staphylococcus aureus (MRSA) and various pathogenic microorganisms. Effects of B. polyfermentius SCD administration on death rates and egg-laying rates in two groups of hens were investigated. This strain decreased the death rates of two groups by 16.26% and 11.72%, respectively. Also this strain increased the egg-laying rates of those 2.74% and 2.66%, respectively Clinical tests of B. polyfermenticus SCD administration to healthy adults showed not adverse effects but decreased glyceride concentration from 154.52 mg/dl to 135.41 mg/dl after two week administrations.
