Supplementing atopic dermatitis treatment with probiotics does not benefit children, according to research presented at the American Academy of Allergy, Asthma and Immunology annual meeting.
“This is a double-blind, placebo-controlled clinical study that aimed to look at the effects of Lactobacillus pentosus in children with atopic dermatitis (AD),” Young Yoo, MD, PhD, of the department of pediatrics at Korea University in Seoul, South Korea, told Infectious Diseases in Children. “L. pentosus is a microbe, derived from kimchi, in the same genus as L. plantarum that has been registered in the Korea Food Research Institute database.”
