Notes


- During life, the numbers of bifidobacteria decrease from up to 90% of the total colon microbiota in vaginally delivered breast-fed infants to <5% in the colon of adults and they decrease even more in that of elderly.

- The dominant early colonizers of the normal infant gut are maternal fecal bacteria, mainly members of Bifidobacterium and Bacteroides (2)
