Feb. 9, 2016

On-demand presentation from microbiome expert Dr. Eamonn M. Quigley provides an overview on probiotics.

AGA has released a new on-demand video focusing on the microbiome and the interesting role of prebiotics and probiotics.

In this 19-minute presentation, Eamonn M. Quigley, MD, chief, division of gastroenterology and hepatology, Houston Methodist Hospital, TX, will help you:

  • Define a prebiotic and a probiotic.
  • List the steps that should be taken in characterizing a probiotic.
  • Contrast experimental findings in animal models with clinical results in man.
  • List clinical disorders that may benefit from the use of a probiotic.
