Daudelin wins Rosell Probiotic Challenge
Jean-François Daudelin received the first prize of the Rosell Probiotic
Challenge for his study concerning the effects of Bactocell® and Levucell®
SB administration on F4+ enterotoxigenic E. coli infection in piglets post-weaning.
The young scientist had the opportunity to give a presentation of his study
during the 5th International Symposium on Probiotics ''Cross Talk Now!",
organized by INITIA in Quebec City, November 6-7th. A Second Prize was awarded
to Stéphanie-Anne Girard for her work on the potential of probiotics on
mechanisms involved in post-myocardial infarction depression.
Jean-François Daudelin is conducting his Master's Thesis under the
supervision of Martin Lessard from Agriculture Canada (Sherbrooke), John M.
Fairbrother and Eric Nadeau (Université de Montréal). His project looked into
the modes of action of probiotics in preventing F4+ enterotoxigenic E.
coli (ETEC) infection in piglets post-weaning. It appears that the
administration from birth of P. acidilactici (Bactocell) in combination
with S. boulardii (Levucell SB) limits the attachment of the pathogen to
the gut mucosa, a key step of ETEC infectiveness.
Open to university
students in North and South America, Rosell's Probiotic Challenge aims to
encourage awareness and education regarding probiotics, in the continuation of
Institut Rosell founders' commitment to pioneer and promote probiotic
applications. Young researchers were assessed by a scientific jury for the
quality of their works.
