PROBIOTIC DOES NOT HELP IN GASTROENTERITIS IN CHILDREN
Tuesday, February 12, 2019

In a US study, 971 children with severe gastroenteritis were randomized to a probiotic (Culturelle) or placebo. There was no difference in length of illness, spread to family members, or days missed from Daycare/Preschool. This is a high quality, low risk of bias, which is unusual in the probiotic literature. New England Journal of Medicine, November 2018.
