ISAPP Newsletter – June 19, 2020

Earlier this month, ISAPP held a virtual edition of its annual meeting – a first in the history of the organization. A big thank-you goes out to both the ISAPP board of directors and the speakers providing recorded presentations, who were instrumental in creating a successful event! We hope we can leverage our experiences during this unusual year in order to enhance future ISAPP meetings.

In this newsletter you will find ISAPP’s response to the recently published American Gastroenterological Association guidelines on probiotic use for gastrointestinal disorders. You’ll also find information on the international consensus definition of synbiotics, due to be published later this year in Nature Reviews Gastroenterology & Hepatology.

ISAPP is now pleased to offer multiple language subtitles for its six educational videos, making these popular resources accessible to many more individuals around the world.

June 1st brought changes to the membership of ISAPP’s academic board of directors – read about the new and retiring board members below.

ISAPP take-home points from American Gastroenterological Association guidelines on probiotic use for gastrointestinal disorders

Recently, the American Gastroenterological Association reviewed the evidence and published a guideline on the use of probiotics in gastrointestinal disorders. In this post, ISAPP board members—some of whom have participated in the creation of probiotic guidelines for other organizations—provide a scientific analysis of the newly published AGA guideline and provide a list of take-home points for physicians, hospital formularies, and consumers.

What makes a synbiotic? ISAPP provides a sneak peek at the forthcoming international scientific consensus definition

A panel of eleven scientific experts under the auspices of ISAPP convened last year to agree on a scientific definition of ‘synbiotic’. The publication outlining this new definition is currently in press at Nature Reviews Gastroenterology & Hepatology. In this blog post, panel chair Kelly Swanson gives a preview of what will be in the publication and what it will mean for testing synbiotic formulations for their health effects.

Reflections on a career in probiotic science, from ISAPP founding board member Prof. Gregor Reid

It is with mixed emotions that ISAPP members bid goodbye to Gregor Reid, who officially ended his tenure as ISAPP board member upon completion of the 2020 annual meeting. We wish him happiness in his retirement from academia, while wondering how ISAPP will manage without his vision, his passion and his wit. See here for Gregor’s personal reflections on his stellar career.
