The Cambridge Probiotic / Antibiotic Trial 2
Effects of probiotics on the composition of the intestinal microbiota following antibiotic therapy
This randomised, double blind, placebo controlled study investigated the effect of Lab4 probiotic supplementation on antibiotic resistance in the re-growth gut microbiota population following antibiotic therapy.
Candida albicans at the end of antibiotic therapy
Microbial population 4 weeks post antibiotic therapy
The supplementation of Lab4 probiotics alongside antibiotic therapy has been shown to reduce the extent of gut microbiota disruption AND to reduce the level of antibiotic resistance within the ‘re-growth’ microbiota.
