Intestinal bacterial proliferation is an important aspect of gastrointestinal injury in neonatal necrotizing enterocolitis (NEC). In the present investigation, we examined the protective action of oral supplementation with Saccharomyces boulardii (S. boulardii), non-pathogen probiotic yeast, against hypoxia-reoxygenation (H/R)-induced NEC in young mice. Young mice were divided into three groups; Group 1 mice (untreated) were subjected only to hypoxia-reoxygenation; Group 2 mice were subjected… CONTINUE READING
