Targeting C. difficile Infection with Next-Generation Probiotics

Antibiotic use can disrupt your body’s protective microbial barrier and open the door to pathogens and illness. Our research focuses on developing next-generation probiotics that would selectively prevent infection by the bacterium Clostridium difficile, a gastrointestinal pathogen that produces toxins resulting in watery diarrhoea and in severe cases, pseudomembrane colitis, toxemia, sepsis and death.
