Safety in Newborns Study

Dietary Supplementation with Lactobacilli and Bifidobacteria Is Well Tolerated and Not Associated with Adverse Events during Late Pregnancy and Early Infancy

SUMMARY

The 454 mother/baby pairs in the randomized, double-blinded, placebo-controlled Swansea Baby Study were assessed for adverse events and the use of Lab4B probiotics was shown to be safe during pregnancy and early infancy. 

Aim

The study evaluated the safety of Lab4b probiotic supplementation in two potentially vulnerable populations – mothers during the last month of pregnancy and their healthy newborn babies during the first six months of life.

Method

Results

  • No differences were found in total adverse events either in the mums-to-be or the babies between Group 2 and Group 1.
  • Conclusion

    This study confirms that the use of Lab4B probiotic is perfectly safe for mums-to-be and their healthy newborn babies.
