Review of Probiotic Trial Research Finds Only Bifantis(R) Able to Claim Efficacy versus Placebo for IBS Symptoms
Date:10/15/2007

trials that met selection criteria, 11 demonstrated sub-optimal study design with inadequate blinding, inadequate trial length, inadequate sample size and lack of proper analysis. Only three studies provided quantifiable data about tolerability and adverse events, and the only probiotic to demonstrate significant improvement in IBS symptoms in appropriately designed studies was Bifidobacterium infantis 35624.

Bifidobacterium infantis 35624 showed significant improvement in the composite score of abdominal pain/discomfort, bloating/distention and bowel movement difficulty compared with placebo. A subsequent study showed that Bifidobacterium infantis 35624 demonstrated superior efficacy to the placebo for the primary outcome measure of abdominal pain/discomfort as well as for secondary measures including bloating/distention, incomplete evacuation, straining and passage of gas.

"From our discovery of the bacterium to the description of its genome and biological properties and, finally, to the clinical studies that have made this available to consumers in Align, our primary goal has been to provide accurate information on the benefits of Bifantis," said Eamonn Quigley, MD FACG and professor of Medicine and Human Physiology and Head of the Medical School, National University of Ireland (NUI).
