Six species of Bifidobacteria were tested towards enteropathogenic E. coli (EPEC) by the spot on-lawn and the well diffusion methods. The six strains were active with the both tests; however Bifidobacterium infantis showed the greatest effect with inhibition zones diameters of 18 and 12 mm respectively. The inhibitory activity of the supernatant was assumed to be due to bacteriocin-like substances since the treatment with three proteases (pepsin, papain, trypsin) resulted in a decrease in the inhibition zones diameters. These indicate that the active substances are of proteinaceous in nature. The active substances were efficiently concentrated using ammonium sulphate (60%) precipitation method followed by deionisation and partial purification on Sephadex G-75 gel. From the results obtained in vitro, the partially purified bacteriocin-like substance was used in an in vivo study using young holoxenic wistar mice. Administration of skimmed milk containing 160 AU/ml of the active substance to diarrheic mice infected with EPEC induced an arrest of the diarrhea concomitant with recovery of a good health status of the treated mice compared to the untreated ones.
