Vopr Kurortol Fizioter Lech Fiz Kult 2021 ;98(2):45-54

Skin and venereal clinic N4, St.-Petersburg, Russia.

A New Approach to Harness Probiotics Against Common Bacterial Skin Pathogens: Towards Living Antimicrobials.

Probiotics Antimicrob Proteins 2021 Apr 15. Epub 2021 Apr 15.

DWI Leibniz-Institute for Interactive Materials, 52074, Aachen, Germany.

In this study, the potential of certain lactic acid bacteria-classified as probiotics and known to be antimicrobially active against pathogens or food-poisoning microorganisms-was evaluated with respect to their activity against bacterial skin pathogens. The aim of the study was to develop a plaster/bandage for the application of inhibitory substances produced by these probiotics when applied to diseased skin. For this purpose, two Streptococcus salivarius strains and one Lactobacillus plantarum were tested for production of antimicrobials (bacteriocin-like substances) active against Gram-positive and Gram-negative pathogens using established methods.
