In addition, conventional antibiotics eliminate natural (beneficial) microflora, thus leading to various complications.

Thus, a search for alternative intervention strategies for fighting bacterial infections is extremely important, topical and timely. One promising approach is the use of beneficial microorganisms (probiotics) able to compete with and kill pathogenic bacteria without doing any harm to the host.
