Probiotics as a treatment for secondary bacterial infections after viral infections.

Progurt Team - Tuesday, October 11, 2016

Secondary bacterial infections after influenza infection still today cause substantial morbidity and mortality. This is a major public health concern of the medical profession.

Dr Jonathan McCullers has noted data sets that highlighted disproportionate trends in hospitalizations among younger patients who acquired 2009 H1N1 influenza. Further data indicated that as many as 50% of severe or fatal H1N1 infections were complicated by a secondary bacterial infection.

Keith P. Klugman, MB, BCh, PhD, William H. Foege Chair of Global Health at the Rollins School of Public Health at Emory University in Atlanta, told Infectious Diseases in Children that there was a doubling of mortality in US children as a result of the 2009 pandemic.

“Sixty percent of deaths were in kids who had underlying problems,” Klugman said. “But in otherwise healthy kids, the overwhelming number of deaths occurred in children who had secondary bacterial infections.”

PubMed (March 2016) published the success of probiotics treatment for patients infected with the H7N9 Influenza Virus.{e4a86c7f-bf32-4c09-ac8e-f310d2a1afa9}/secondary-bacterial-infections-common-with-viruses
