This organism was originally called as Eubacterium species, reclassified as Eubacterium lentum.
Antimicrobial, antioxidant, hepatoprotective and antitumor properties of these microorganisms (Actinomyces meyeri, Actinomyces odontolyticus, Bacteroides ovatus, Bifidobacterium bifidum, Bifidobacterium breve, Bifidobacterium dentium, Clostridium butyricum, Clostridium beijerinckii, Enterococcus gallinarum, Enterococcus faecalis, Escherichia coli, Eubacterium aerofaciens, Eubacterium lentum, Lactobacillus spp., Leptotrichia buccalis, Micrococcus spp., Neisseria mucosa, Peptostreptococcus asaccharolyticus, Sarcina spp., Staphylococcus xylosis, Staphylococcus cohni, Staphylococcus capitis, Streptococcus agalactiae) have been only subsequently studied, and each of the strains was assigned a number from No.1 to No.
Three of these 6 false-negative samples were due to the presence of Eubacterium lentum as identified by the reference standard method, an identification that was missed each time this organism was presented.
