    Satu Vesterlund
    Functional Foods Forum, Department of Biochemistry and Food Chemistry, University of Turku, Turku, Finland
    Microbiology 152:1819-26. 2006
    ..This study shows for the first time that Staph. aureus can adhere to human intestinal mucus and adherent bacteria can be displaced and killed by certain LAB strains via in situ production of antimicrobial substances...

    J Microbiol Methods 60:225-33. 2005
    ..As a result, we show that the best reproducibility and sensitivity were obtained using radioactive labelling. With other methods, the sensitivity was too low due to poorly adhering bacteria and low signal-to-background ratio...
