(2003): How safe is safe? A case of Lactobacillus paracasei ssp paracasei endocarditis and discussion of the safety of lactic acid bacteria
SCAND J INFEC DIS. 2003; 35(10): 759-762. FullText FullText_BOKU

We report a case of endocarditis due to Lactobacillus paracasei ssp. paracasei , which could be distinguished from Lactobacillus strains used for the fermentation of dairy products by randomly amplified polymorphic DNA-polymerase chain reaction. The safety of biotechnical lactic acid bacteria use is also discussed.
