The current investigation is designed to find out a way to prevent and treatment of food poisoning with the use of probiotics in different dosage formulations. In pilot study it was demonstrated that Bifidobacterium sp. prevented the growth of H. pylori by competitive inhibition. Probiotics and a healthy gut microbiome have been shown to prevent many cases of food poisoning. Probiotics treat food poisoning and decreases the turmoil of those infected people. So the main target of the present study is to prevent the happening of this and associated complications by the use of probiotics. There have been a few medical studies that have shown that probiotics can help reduce the incidence of food poisoning as well as minimize the duration of the illness and the severity of the symptoms.
Salmonella enterica, a pathogenic bacteria, is a common causative agent of food poisoning and further studies on administering probiotics has shown to mitigate its infection and severity. Few animal studies appear to show that giving probiotics prophylactically (to pigs at least) seems to reduce the risk of getting Salmonella, a potentially food-borne disease, also decreasing the gravity of the disease for those infected ones. However, more appropriate studies are required to prove the concept the efficacy of probiotics as a prophylactic and therapeutic agent. The current study also undertakes different dosage formulations like capsule, powder and aerosol preparation.
A significant percentage of people who travel internationally get persistent diarrhoea, which is caused by contaminated food or water and is commonly referred to as Traveler’s Diarrhoea. From 5 to 50% of overseas travelers will develop this food poisoning, depending on the destination of their trip. However, it remains to be seen whether administration of probiotics prophylactically is effective at reducing the likelihood of travelers developing diarrhoea in the first place.
