Probiotic bacteria enhance antigen sampling and processing by dendritic cells in pediatric IBD

      Introduction and aim: Bifidobacteria have been reported to reduce inflammation and contribute to intestinal homeostasis. However, the interaction between these bacteria and the gut immune system remains largely unknown. Because of the central role played by dendritic cells (DC) in immune responses, we examined in vitro the effects of a mixture of three Bifidobacteria (probiotic), on DC functionality from children with Inflammatory Bowel Disease (IBD).
