B.coagulans in the treatment of gastrointestinal diseases of inflammatory and functional nature: effectiveness from the standpoint of evidence-based medicine

I.L. Vysochina


The analysis of PubMed, Scopus, Web of Science, MedLine, The Cochrane Library, CyberLeninka, RISC databases was performed in the context of searching for information on the effectiveness of B.coagulans in the treatment of gastrointestinal diseases of inflammatory and functional nature. The system analysis of the information presented in this article fully complies with international recommendations on systematic methods of literature search and contains information on the role, significance, advantages, safety and effectiveness of this strain (GRAS Notice No. GRN 000660) and the options of using probiotics and B.coagulans preparations in humans, with evidence of the possibility of expanding indications for the administration of the probiotic B.coagulans (Laktovit Forte), in particular in irritable bowel syndrome.
