Lactobacillus & Bifidobacterium reduce risk of NEC in pre-term babies

Pre-term babies

The study showed that the administration of multispecies Lactobacillus and Bifidobacterium combination probiotics was associated with a significantly decreased risk of NEC and late-onset sepsis in the NICU at Norfolk and Norwich University Hospital. This evaluation supports the routine use of multi-species Lactobacillus and Bifidobacterium combination probiotics for preventing NEC in very preterm neonates.
