Probi probiotics reduce bowel problems linked to cancer radiation therapy


A randomized, double-blind, placebo-controlled trial with Probi’s two probiotic strains, HEAL9MTand LP6595, has been shown to reduce gastrointestinal problems in women receiving pelvic radiation therapy.

The 3-arm study included 75 women with gynecological cancer receiving pelvic radiation therapy. Patients received a high or low dose of the HEAL9 combination probiotic strainsMTand LP6595 or placebo and was conducted at two sites in Sweden.

“When receiving radiation therapy for gynecological cancer, women often experience gastrointestinal problems during and after therapy. This study showed a significant reduction in the severity and frequency of abdominal pain and urgency of defecation.” ExplainNiklas Larsson, Senior Director of Scientific Affairs and Intellectual Property at Probi.

“It is extremely gratifying to see that such a vulnerable group can be helped in a highly exposed situation by consuming our probiotic strains. This fits perfectly with our vision to provide probiotics for healthier living by being an innovative precursor,” says Tom Rönnlund, CEO of Probi.

The study “Decreasing the Adverse Effects in Pelvic Radiation Therapy: A Randomized Controlled Trial Evaluating the Use of Probiotics” was recently published in Advances in Radiation Oncology(2022) 8, 101089 and can be found here:
