The Impact of Perinatal Daily Supplement of a Probiotic (Lactobacillus Rhamnosus GG), Given to Mothers, on Immunological Development, Atopic Sensitisation and Allergic Disease in Their Off-Spring
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.
To investigate the relationship between supplement of probiotics to pregnant and breast-feeding women, the microbial composition of the gut flora in their children, the development of the childrens' immune system, and the prevalence of atopic sensitisation and atopic disease at two years of age.

A species of gram-positive, rod-shaped bacteria used in PROBIOTICS.
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).
A species of gram-positive, rod-shaped bacteria associated with DENTAL CARIES.
A species of rod-shaped, LACTIC ACID bacteria used in PROBIOTICS and SILAGE production.
A species of gram-positive bacteria isolated from MILK and cheese-starter cultures.
In this trial we test the hypothesis that a probiotic containing Lactobacillus acidophilus and Lactobacillus rhamnosus is an effective therapy for patients with ulcerative colitis.
The purpose of the present study is to examine the utility of probiotics as an adjunctive therapy (in addition to patients' pharmacotherapy) for the treatment of Rheumatoid Arthritis....
Given that asthma results from a complex interaction between genetic susceptibility and environmental factors and rates of childhood asthma are increasing, primary prevention has to focus...
This interventional study aims to evaluate the efficacy of oral administration of Lactobacillus Rhamnosus GG in preventing relapses of ocular inflammation in Vernal Keratoconjunctivitis (...
The purpose of this study is to determine whether Lactobacillus acidophilus/rhamnosus complex is effective in the prevention of antibiotic-associated diarrhea (AAD) in the elderly.
Lactobacillus rhamnosus LOCK908, a patented probiotic strain (Polish patent no. 209987), was isolated from the feces of a healthy 6-year-old girl. Here, we present the complete genome sequence of LOCK...
Lactobacillus rhamnosus strain LR231 was isolated from the feces of healthy human subjects. It is observed to be a potential probiotic strain, having a broad spectrum of antimicrobial activity against...
In this report, we present a draft sequence of the genome of Lactobacillus rhamnosus strain 2166, a potential novel probiotic. Genome annotation and read mapping onto a reference genome of L. rhamnos...
The aim of the present study was to investigate the antigenotoxic properties of the probiotic Lactobacillus rhamnosus IMC501; DNA damage was induced by one representative food mutagen, 2-amino-1-methy...
The minD gene encoding an inhibitor cell division MinD homolog from Lactobacillus acidophilus VTCC-B-871 was cloned. We showed that there were 97 % homology between minD genes of L. acidophilus VTCC-...
