ISAPP Newsletter – May 19, 2020
Our May newsletter begins with two items about COVID-19: a clear public statement from our board members about the science on probiotics and prebiotics for viral infections and for COVID-19 disease specifically, and a roundup of probiotic scientists worldwide who are contributing to efforts against SARS-CoV-2.
Next, read about a new publication co-authored by ISAPP board members Mary Ellen Sanders and Dan Merenstein, along with biostatician Dan Tancredi, which provides primary care physicians a summary of information on the evidence base for probiotic use.
See ISAPP’s two infographics on the changes to Lactobacillus taxonomy. The landmark paper describing the overhaul of the taxonomy of the genus was published last month.
Below you can also find information about an upcoming webinar on fermented foods, presented by ISAPP in partnership with British Nutrition Foundation.
