- ... Child exposure to fecal-oral pathogens occurs through several transmission pathways. However, the relative importance of different exposure points for pathogen transmission both inside and outside households is not well understood. We conducted a cross-sectional study in the urban slum of Kibera in Nairobi, Kenya, collecting 237 environmental samples from 40 households from source water, stored dr ...

- ... Citrulline is a precursor of arginine and is believed to have the same beneficial effects as arginine. Lactobacillus helveticus ASCC 511 (LH511) utilizes arginine to produce extra energy for cell growth via arginine deiminase (ADI) pathway. Supplementation of both citrulline and LH511 is considered to be beneficial to intestinal tract. LH511 + Cit-2 mM was tested with IPEC-J2 cells to determine (i ...
