Probiotic strain may aid colicky infants, study finds
STOCKHOLM A new study now available online in the journal Pediatrics supported earlier clinical research about the benefits of a specific probiotic strain on colic symptoms in infants, BioGaia recently announced.
In the new study, infants supplemented with Lactobacillus reuteri Protectis showed a significant reduction in crying time. After one week of supplementation, the reduction in crying time was 74% in the L. reuteri Protectis group, compared with 38% in the placebo group.
The primary outcome was a reduction in average crying time to less than three hours per day, which is the limit of colic, within three weeks.
“These results are in line with previous studies on colics and confirm the benefit of L. reuteri in colicky infants,” stated Francesco Savino, department of pediatrics at Regina Margherita Children’s Hospital, University of Turin, Italy.
Prolatis recalls male-enhancement product
SALT LAKE CITY Prolatis earlier this week announced a voluntary nationwide recall of the company’s product sold under the brand name Prolatis’ after being informed by the Food and Drug Administration that lab analysis has found their male-enhancement products to contain sulfoaildenafil, an analogue of sildenafil, an FDA-approved drug used as treatment for male erectile dysfunction.
That makes Prolatis’ an unapproved drug, as opposed to a dietary supplement.
The active drug ingredient is not listed on the product label. Product manufactured prior to Aug. 9, 2010 is included in this recall. Prolatis’ is sold nationwide in double blister packs and 40-count bottles at “GNC and other smarter retailers” according to the company’s website. Prolatis’ had also been sold on CVS.com.
The recall is being conducted as a precautionary measure, the company asserted.
