VSL#3 Probiotic-Mixture Induces Remission in Patients With Active Ulcerative Colitis

Background
Normal intestinal bacteria have been implicated in the initiation and perpetuation of inflammatory bowel disease (IBD) in genetically predisposed individuals
Certain probiotic species when consumed in appropriate amounts have properties possibly effective in the dietary management of IBD3-6

VSL#3 Probiotic Induces Remission in Active Ulcerative Colitis

BACKGROUND AND AIMS:
Intestinal bacteria have been implicated in the initiation and perpetuation of IBD; in contrast, "probiotic bacteria" have properties possibly effective in treating and preventing relapse of IBD. We evaluated the safety and efficacy of VSL#3 and the components, and the composition of the biopsy-associated microbiota in patients with active mild to moderate ulcerative colitis (UC).
