New paper on probiotics and their potential to prevent necrotizing enterocolitis

See this recent paper below discussing the impact of a B. infantis probiotic on a devastating disease that affects preterm infants, using a mouse model of the disease.

This work was a collaboration with researchers at the University of Iowa; the University of California, Davis; the University of Nebraska Lincoln; and scientists in industry (Evolve Biosystems). This study was funded by Evolve Biosystems.

And, Congratulations to Dr. Shiloh Lueschow (the study’s lead author) for recently completing her PhD studies!
