Abstract

There have been no reports of severe adverse advents with the use of probiotics in humans in clinical trials. However, at this time there is very little evidence to justify the use of probiotics for the treatment of Crohn's disease but some data exists to suggest that probiotics may be useful in the management of ulcerative colitis.
