Hello 99ers, In Canada, very few hospitals are using probiotics so far. We started almost 18 months ago, using the protocol from Dr. Keith Barrington's group. The product that we use is called "FloraBaby ®". At this point, the RNs receive a jar per baby, and on the benchtop where they do regular medication preparation, they place the jar on a paper towel, don sterile gloves, measure out the 0.5 g of powder, and mix it once daily with the baby's feed, then recap the jar & throw out the gloves and paper. That's it. Does anyone have a better idea on how to deal with live organisms?
We were in the works to get the Solgar probiotic product used in the ProPrems trial (http://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/pubmed/24249817) As far as we have understood - this is the product http://www.yourhealthfoodstore.co.uk/shop-by-department/supplements/pre-probiotics/pro/solgar-abc-dophilus-powder-children-and-infant-formula.html and we have been working to import it to Sweden. Now it seems that this specific product is recalled after a safety alert by the FDA http://www.fda.gov/Safety/MedWatch/SafetyInformation/SafetyAlertsforHumanMedicalProducts/ucm423277.htm Has anyone used this
