Streptococcus uberis is Gram-positive bacterium. It's cell wall structure is similar to Staphylococcus species., as well as streptococci such as S. agalactiae and S. dysgalactiae. S. uberis is the most common Streptococcus species isolated from cases of mastitis. The control of S. uberis in bovines includes maintenance of a clean and dry housing environment and implementation of proper milking procedures.
Probiotics with Streptococcus uberis KJ2 along with Streptococcus oralis KJ3, and Streptococcus rattus JH145 were studied after scaling and root planing (SRP), but no differences were detected when comparing the adjunctive use of a placebo or the investigated streptococci containing probiotic tablet after SRP (ClinicalTrials.gov Identifier: NCT02403960), except that the % of sites with plaque that were significantly lower in the probiotic group than in the control group at the 24-week evaluation. In addition, at the 12-week time point, the salivary Prevotella intermedia counts were significantly lower in the probiotic group.
In another clinical trial, both EvoraKids and PerioBalance (containing Streptococcus uberis KJ2) affected the Caries Risk Test results by significantly decreasing the number of S. mutans and lactobacilli present in the salivary samples.
