What is it about?

Bovine lactoferrin is a cationic glycoprotein with several biological functions. For example, has antimicrobial, antiviral, immunomodulatory, and anticancer activity. These effects can be found in vitro and in vitro conditions. In this in vitro research, bovine lactoferrin affect the biofilm production and improves the action of two antibiotics.

Why is it important?

Our results show that a low bovine lactoferrin concentration can diminish the in vitro biofilm production in Listeria isolates; also improves the in vitro oxytetracycline and streptomycin activity against E. coli, and ampicillin activity against Listeria isolates.


All experimental evidence about the bovine lactoferrin effect on bacterial virulence factors and synergy with drugs help support the possibility that the use of lactoferrin can be feasible
