Abstract
<jats:p><jats:italic>Bifidobacterium</jats:italic> spp. typical of the human intestinal microbiota are believed to influence the balance of immune responses in the intestinal mucosa. The aim of the present study was to investigate the effect of different bifidobacterial species and their mixtures in <jats:italic>in vitro</jats:italic> experiments with peripheral blood mononuclear cells (PBMC) and Caco-2 cells. <jats:italic>Bifidobacterium adolescentis</jats:italic>, <jats:italic>B. angulatum</jats:italic>, <jats:italic>B. breve</jats:italic>, <jats:italic>B. catenulatum</jats:italic>, <jats:italic>B. infantis</jats:italic>, <jats:italic>B. longum</jats:italic> a...
