Probiotics negate the influence of genetic AD factors

396 full-term infants were the subjects of this study. Of these, 132 newborns without a family history of atopic disease (AD) were allocated to group A, and 264 newborns with a family history of AD were randomly divided into groups B and C. Infants in group A and group B were solely breastfed, while probiotics were fed to infants in group C in addition to breastfeeding.

Results suggest that oral administration of probiotics could reduce the incidence of AD in infants with a family history of atopic disease. Furthermore, observations suggest that probiotics could inhibit the high sensitivity state of the body and reduce the tendency of AD to occur, which means that probiotics might play a preventive role in the occurrence of other diseases such as allergic rhinitis and allergic asthma.
