Synbiotics Prevent Asthma-Like Symptoms in Infants With Atopic Dermatitis

Abstract

REVIEWER COMMENTS. This study found that probiotic bacteria given to the mother during pregnancy and early lactation might prevent AD in the child. Previous randomized controlled trials that used various probiotics have involved administration directly to all or the majority of children. The results of this study are exciting in that treatment of the mother over a limited period of time seemed to make a difference in the cumulative incidence of AD and severity of atopic dermatitis in affected children.
