Abstract

Our laboratory has developed a recombined porcine-derived mixed bacterial culture (RPCF) isolated from the ceca of a healthy, pathogen-free pig and have maintained it at steady state in a continuous-flow chemostat. The culture has been shown to protect neonatal and weaned pigs from infection and disease caused by Salmonella and E. coli. However, the mechanism of action of the protection from pathogens observed with the RPCF culture remains unclear.
