Revealing antibiotic resistance in therapeutic and dietary probiotic supplements
The findings showed the presence of antibiotic resistance in probiotic bacteria isolated from commercially available dietary supplements. As multidrug resistance is a serious emerging issue and the risk of drug resistant gene transfer to commensals or pathogens of the gut is inevitable, the safety of probiotics has become a major criterion of interest. The findings of this study would serve as a platform for further screening and characterization of the determinants of antibiotic resistance and the genetic mechanisms of resistance.
