A probiotic (Lactobacillus rhamnosus GG) supplement to pregnant women the last four weeks of pregnancy and three months after birth is expected to give a 40% reduction in risk of atopic sensitisation and allergic disease at two years of age, compared to placebo.
To investigate how probiotics given to pregnant women during the last 4 weeks of pregnancy and the first 4 months after birth influence the establishment and composition of the gut microflora in children from birth until two years of age.
At the same time to investigate the relationship between gut flora composition and the development of the immune system.

Asthma attacks following a period of exercise. Usually the induced attack is short-lived and regresses spontaneously. The magnitude of postexertional airway obstruction is strongly influenced by the environment in which exercise is performed (i.e. inhalation of cold air during physical exertion markedly augments the severity of the airway obstruction; conversely, warm humid air blunts or abolishes it).
