  Probiotic bacteria are considered beneficial microorganisms and have been widely used. They protect against harmful bacteria that can cause diseases. This study was carried out to evaluate the potential for L. acidophilus intact cells and cell lysates as antioxidant activities and also to evaluate the potential of this bacteria and their exopolysacchariedes (EPS) as antitumor activity in vitro and in vivo against Ehrlich Ascites Carcinoma (EAC) cell line. Lactobacillus acidophilus demonstrated having antioxidant activities for both cell lysates and intact cells with increasing antioxidative properties for cell lysates against 2, 2--diphenyl-1-picrylhydrazyl (DPPH), also resistance to hydrogen peroxide and hydroxyl radical. The EPS produced by L. acidophilus showed a powerful antitumor effect in vivo and in vitro in comparison with L. acidophilus itself while, E. coli increasing solid tumor volume than control.

  Increase in the levels of cholesterol is harmful, it is a risk factor for cardiovascular disease. This study was carried out to compare the in vitro anti-hypercholesteremia effects of different concentrations of probiotic bacteria (lactobacillus casei and lactobacillus plantarum) and cyanobacteria (Spirulina platensis) isolated as intact cells or cell lysates. The results showed that S. platensis is more effective The mixture of cell lysates from L. casei, L. plantarum and Spirulina platensis lowered the level of cholesterol by 65% as compared to the inhibitory effect of L. casei (32%), L. plantarum (33%) and S. platensis (47%). Their significant differences by using the mixture of testing bacteria as intact cells and cell lysate in the percentage of cholesterol reduction.
