S. boulardii Found Most Effective for Treating Acute Diarrhea in Children
In the Bayesian network meta-analysis of 84 studies involving 13,443 children, we found that certain single-strain (including Saccharomyces boulardii, LGG, Lactobacillus reuteri, Bifidobacterium lactis, and ECN 1917) and multi-strain probiotics effectively treated acute diarrhea in children with various certainty evidence. Saccharomyces boulardii may be the most effective probiotic for treating acute diarrhea in children. Besides, Bifidobacterium lactis was a promising probiotic. More studies are needed to verify the results.
