Nice information on microbiome
Thank you, Pallavi, for your feedback.
I was un'abile to writer down the reference of that very interesting paper that used alpha and beta sim
I'll share with you
Would it be possible to have more details related to probiotic strains specificity and the difficulty to perform a meta-analysis (i.e. pool the results together etc.)?
Prof. Patole's response - Strain-specific meta-analysis give ideal data on safety and efficacy of each strain. For example, please refer to our published strain-specific systematic reviews of L.
reuteri DSM 17938 and B. breve M16-V. Our 2 new strain-specific reviews will be out hopefully by 4-6 months. Keep an eye for them.
Unfortunately not many trials/studies have used just 1 strain. It is difficult to know the role of 'a' strain in a 'combination'. That is why it is important
to know whether the strains in a 'combination' are synergistic or compatible with each other and NOT 'antagonistic'.
If one is using strains from common genera such as 'Lactobacillus' and 'Bifidobacterium', hopefully they will not be 'antagonistic'.
For an elbw neonate , when minimal enteral feed is started along with TPN, can we start probiotics orally, or should we wait till we achieve a definite volume
I would encourage to everyone please text your question here.
What are the added advantages of giving combined prebiotic and postbiotic in newborns?
What is/are the current evidence(s) on the effect of different periods of probiotic therapy on the child development? What is the optimal period of probiotic therapy?
Are there added advantages of the combination of prebiotic, probiotic and postbiotic therapy?
Sir, I'll get back you with an answer from Professor Patole.
Dear Participants, Please feel free to ask you question here. Please text you questions or queries.
Quote trials in India,Price of infloran?
Hi Dr. Chitra, Thanks for your question. Yes We've got registered Infloran as a drug. For the price I'll get back to you soon.
It has been 2 months since I completed the assessment, but I haven't received the certificate. We were told we will receive within 4 weeks
Looking forward to be part of the deliberations about what now! Are we in the mindset, "Been there, Done that!" Then these sessions are going to shake off that feeling, hopefully..!
Wonderful work I, great academic activity nice move by wallella best of luck from Drskpunshi amravati
