Announcement: Multicenter trial of a combination probiotic for children with gastroenteritis

Data to determine whether the use of probiotics improves outcomes in these children are lacking. Dr. Stephen Freedman from Pediatric Emergency Research Canada and Alberta Children's Hospital led this fantastic multicenter trial looking at the effectiveness of probiotics for kids with stomach bugs!
