Study TypeOther
Abstract The aim of this study was to determine whether dietary intervention influenced luminal Ca2+ levels and Enterococcus faecium gut colonization in mice. For this purpose, mice fed semi-synthetic food AIN93 were compared to mice fed AIN93-low calcium (LC). Administration of AIN93-LC resulted in lower lu .. [more]
