The author concludes that the results of clinical studies support the use of probiotics for infective, antibiotic-induced, and travelers'
diarrhea; vaginal thrush and recurrent cystitis; irritable bowel syndrome; colitis; food allergies; and lactose malabsorption. Probiotics
may also be useful for the prevention of pouchitis, postoperative infections, and eczema. The author does warn that probiotics should be
avoided in patients who are sensitive to any component of a probiotic formulation. Additionally, he acknowledges that the labeling of many
probiotic products is substandard......more
Probiotics Boost Baby's Immune System and Aids in the Prevention and Treatment of Allergic Disease
Samuli Rautava and Erika Isolauri
Department of Paediatrics, University of Turku, Finland
The administration of probiotics, strains of bacteria from the healthy human gut microbiota, have been shown to stimulate anti-inflammatory,
tolerogenic immune responses, the lack of which has been implied in the development of atopic disorders. Thus probiotics may prove
beneficial in the prevention and alleviation of allergic disease.......more
Probiotics May Improve Children Health and Fight Disease
M.J. Friedrich and S. Gorback MD
Department of Medicine Tufts University Boston USA
There is evidence that probiotics can induce expression of mucin proteins, the large glycoproteins secreted by epithelial cells in the
intestinal tract that provide protection from bacteria and viruses, said David Mack, MD, of Nebraska Medical Center, Omaha, who presented
evidence for this mechanism at the meeting. He and his colleagues have shown that certain lactobacilli strains can increase the expression
of MUC3 messenger RNA expression and MUC3 protein translation in cell culture and also inhibit adherence of enteropathogenic Escherichia coli
to intestinal mucosal cells in culture. They hypothesize that by inducing mucin gene expression, probiotic agents may be able to minimize the
interaction of other microbes with intestinal mucosal cells and lessen intestinal inflammation.
Preliminary data suggest that there are a number of other conditions in children for which probiotics may prove useful, said Johns Hopkins'
Saavedra. These include inflammatory disorders of the gastrointestinal tract, such as inflammatory bowel disease and necrotizing enterocolitis.
Treatment of hypercholesterolemia also has been reported, but there have been no major studies. And if immunoenhancing effects can be
definitively demonstrated in humans, he said, probiotics could be used to reduce vaccine doses........
The FIRST STEP to a Strong Immune System
Dr Debby Hansen - Director of The Edison Institute of Nutrition, Federickton, New Brunswick, Canada
The gastrointestional (GI) tract is the major center of immune response. Gut Associated lymphoid Tissue (GALT) is the largest lymphoid organ
in the body. The small intestine contains 80% of the immune-producing cells in the body. There are 400-500 indigenous species of micro flora
in the large intestine, many of which are unculturable and therefore virtually unknown. There are 100,000 billion viable bacteria in the GI
tract. Bacteria should compose 33% to 50% of fecal matter. Normal bowel flora is essential to the immune system, starting from birth. Two
of the most studied beneficial bacteria are strains of Lactobacilli and Bifidobacteria........
Inflammatory Bowel Disease - Live probiotics protect intestinal epithelial cells from the effects of infection
with enteroinvasive Escherichia coli (EIEC)

Conclusions - Live ST/LA interact with intestinal epithelial cells to protect them from the deleterious effect of EIEC via mechanisms that
include, but are not limited to, interference with pathogen adhesion and invasion. Probiotics likely also enhance the barrier
function of naive epithelial cells not exposed to any pathogen.........more
Probiotics given to pregnant and lactating mothers reduced atopic eczema during the first two years of their
Luise Kalbe, PhD., Brigitte Reusens, PhD., and Professor Claude Remacle, Cellular Biology Laboratory, University de Louvain, Belgium
Not only are probiotics therefore promising functional foods for pregnant women and infants, but they can be considered for prophylactic as
well as therapeutic uses. Prophylactic use of probiotics for women during the last trimester of pregnancy and through childbirth, for
instance, permanently colonised the gastrointestinal tracts of their infants. It is not yet known whether the immune-boosting properties of
these probiotics require periodic pulse dosage or continuous administration.........more

Antifungal Effect of Lactic Acid Bacteria (LAB)
L. Vanne, T. Kleemola, A. Haikara - VTT Biotechnology
Results - All the four LAB strains studied using the indirect impedimetric method were able to delay or even inhibit the growth of
A. ochraceus and P. verruosum during the 90-hour monitoring period. The most effective strains L. plantarum E76 and L. amylovorus E576, were
able to inhibit the growth of all 14 fungal strains tested. The results achieved in this study show clearly
that the growth of toxigenic storage fungi can be restricted by LAB in vitro.........more

American Journal of Clinical Nutrition, Vol. 77, No. 2, 517-520 - February 2003
Conclusions - The results indicate that regular intake of probiotics can reduce PPB in the upper respiratory tract. The results also indicate
a linkage of the lymphoid tissue between the gut and the upper respiratory tract.........more
Study shows secret to gas-free beans
Reuters - Yahoo News - Tuesday April 25, 2006
When researchers fermented black beans with the two bacteria (L. plantarum and L. casei), they found it decreased the soluble
fiber content by more than 60 percent and lowered levels of raffinose, a compound known to cause gas, by 88 percent.........
Comments from healthcare professionals who have used LB17:
"... I have been using different probiotic blends over the years. The best I found by far is LB17. The ... more
strands of different friendly bateria, the better the probiotic. It has been my experience that LB17 covers every area of body fluids from
the sinuses to the reproductive organs which give LB17 a great advantage over any other probiotic. My patients love the small size of the
capsules and I have used LB17 with great success on open wounds and stubborn acne by ... applying ... directly to the wound.
... be happy to recommend LB17 to any health practitioner."..
