A recent symposium sponsored by Alflorex at the Royal Society of Medicine in London focused on new approaches to a range of digestive health issues. The symposium, chaired by Dr. Ayesha Akbar and attended by some of the UK’s leading gastroenterologists, discussed presentations by an international panel of experts. This included discussion of the clinical trial data on the 35624 culture in Alflorex, which has been shown to reduce symptoms of bloating, abdominal pain, gas and unpredictable bowel movements such as alternating diarrhoea and constipation. The panel consisted of:
