Background: The health benefits of probiotics are well established and known to be strain-specific.However, the role of probiotics obtained from different origins and their efficacy largely remainsunexplored. The aim of this study is to investigate the in vitro efficacy of probiotics from differentorigins.Methods: Probiotic strains utilized in this study include Lactobacillus acidophilus DDS-1 (humanorigin), Bifidobacterium animalis ssp. lactis UABla-12 (human origin), L. plantarum UALp-05 (plantorigin) and Streptococcus thermophilus UASt-09 (dairy origin). Screening assays such as in vitrodigestion simulation, adhesion, cell viability and cytokine release were used to evaluate the probioticpotential.Results: All strains showed good resistance in the digestion simulation process, especially DDS-1and UALp-05, which survived up to a range of 107 to 108 CFU/mL from an initial concentration of 109CFU/mL. Two human colonic mucus-secreting cells, HT-29 and LS174T, were used to assess theadhesion capacity, cytotoxicity/viability, and cytokine quantification. All strains exhibited goodadhesion capacity. No significant cellular cytotoxicity or loss in cell viability was observed. DDS-1and UALp-05 significantly upregulated anti-inflammatory IL-10 and downregulated pro-inflammatoryTNF-α cytokine production. All the strains were able to downregulate IL-8 cytokine levels.Conclusion: Of the 4 strains tested, DDS-1 demonstrated superior survival rates, good adhesioncapacity and strong immunomodulatory effect under different experimental conditions.
