Inhibition of allergen-induced airway inflammation and hyper-reactivity by recombinant lactic-acid bacteria
Speaking of symbiotic relationships, this study finds that lactic acid bacteria (like Lactobacillus) can help to calm airway inflammation (such as in asthma). So, with that being said, what happens to the 6 month old infant that is given antibiotics for an ear infection (which may be due to allergens such as dairy, NOT the bacteria itself)? The answer is probably quite simple. When we remove protection, we increase risk.
