Abstract

There is increasing interest in probiotics for therapy and prevention of infectious diseases. There are no published trials of probiotics as therapy for respiratory tract infections (RTIs) in children or adults. There is low quality, inconsistent evidence for the efficacy of probiotics for prevention of RTIs or ventilator-associated pneumonia or for modification of the severity of RTIs.
