UTMB Dr. Victor S. Sierpina shares some of the latest studies and reviews on probiotics from the past year and offers tips on how to prescribe probiotics. “While many of the studies in reviews on probiotic research are mixed in their results, enough positive results have been found to encourage further clinical studies of probiotics. Much work remains to be done regarding the specific species for individual conditions, dosage, length of treatment and more, but much of the groundwork has been laid for the scientific basis of the field to move ahead,” he wrote.
