Live bacteria used to treat URTIs
A randomised controlled trial of males aged 30-49 years were given L. casei in a solution of fermented milk for 12 weeks over the winter period. They had a decreased risk of upper respiratory tract infections (URTIs) and were found to be affected for a shorter duration when they had an episode.
