Table 3 Effect of NPRBE and BPRBE on bacterial load in feces and organs from Salmonella-infected mice

From: The composition of a bioprocessed shiitake (Lentinus edodes) mushroom mycelia and rice bran formulation and its antimicrobial effects against Salmonella enterica subsp. enterica serovar Typhimurium strain SL1344 in macrophage cells and in mice
