The role of probiotics in paediatrics

Posted 12 years ago by Soraya in General Health News

A conference on probiotics sponsored by Nestle told paediatricians to keep themselves informed of research on probiotics. Martin Martin MD, a paediatrics professor at the David Geffen University in Los Angeles highlighted the rise of allergies and autoimmune diseases in children, stating that the study of microbiota was vital in combating this growing trend.  Erika Isolauri, MD of the University of Turku, Finland stated that paediatrics should focus on specific strains, particularly those of the Bifidobacterium genus which seem to be beneficial in the alleviation of gastrointestinal infections and antibiotic-associated diarrhoea in children.
