Abstract

Lactobacillus salivarius has been frequently isolated from the mammalian digestive tract and has been studied as a candidate probiotic. Research to date has described the immunomodulatory properties of the species in cell-lines, mice, rats and humans for the alleviation of intestinal disease and the promotion of host well-being. The ability of L. salivarius to inhibit pathogens and tolerate host antimicrobial defenses demonstrates the adaptation of this species to the gastrointestinal niche. L. salivarius is the best characterized of 25 species in the L. salivarius clade of the genus Lactobacillus. Several other species of this clade are candidate probiotics; however, their probiotic potential has not yet been exploited. This review summarizes the research defining the probiotic nature of L. salivarius, by focusing in particular on L. salivarius UCC118 as a representative strain. The emergent research detailing the probiotic potential of other species in this phylogenetic clade will also be discussed.

Attention Score in Context

Attention Score in Context

This research output has an Altmetric Attention Score of 6. This is our high-level measure of the quality and quantity of online attention that it has received. This Attention Score, as well as the ranking and number of research outputs shown below, was calculated when the research output was last mentioned on 30 September 2021.
All research outputs
#5,606,965
of 25,936,091 outputs
Outputs from Future Microbiology
#256
of 1,310 outputs
Outputs of similar age
#22,994
of 105,789 outputs
Outputs of similar age from Future Microbiology
#3
of 12 outputs
Altmetric has tracked 25,936,091 research outputs across all sources so far. Compared to these this one has done well and is in the 75th percentile: it's in the top 25% of all research outputs ever tracked by Altmetric.
So far Altmetric has tracked 1,310 research outputs from this source. They typically receive more attention than average, with a mean Attention Score of 7.7. This one has done well, scoring higher than 79% of its peers.
Older research outputs will score higher simply because they've had more time to accumulate mentions. To account for age we can compare this Altmetric Attention Score to the 105,789 tracked outputs that were published within six weeks on either side of this one in any source. This one has gotten more attention than average, scoring higher than 71% of its contemporaries.
We're also able to compare this research output to 12 others from the same source and published within six weeks on either side of this one. This one has done well, scoring higher than 75% of its contemporaries.
