ISAPP Newsletter – October 2021
In this October newsletter, Profs. Dan Merenstein MD and Eamonn Quigley MD respond to the American College of Gastroenterology decision to recommend against the use of probiotics for primary prevention of C. difficile infection. You'll also find a new blog post from Dr. Gabriel Vinderola on how the concept of postbiotics may change how we think about probiotic products.
In another post, Prof. Kelly Swanson gives a useful summary of probiotics for dogs: which dogs might benefit and what the formulations might look like.
ISAPP shares that the USDA Global Branded Food Products Database is accepting information on live microbes contained in foods and beverages.
We are also pleased to invite applications for the ISAPP Glenn Gibson Early Career Researcher Prize, open to early career researchers (fewer than 5 years from terminal degree) in the fermented foods or 'biotics' fields.
This month, an SFA member contributes the next post in the blog series on probiotic and prebiotic research in Africa.
