Clinical Trials Best Practices for Probiotics

Start Date: 18 January 2018

Start Time: 2pm EST (New York)

Duration:60 minutes


Interest in probiotics continues to dominate the natural health products industry. While some evidence exists for the efficacy of probiotics in certain indications, many published studies lack the necessary methodological quality required to provide robust results. As the dietary supplement industry relies on ‘self-policing’ rather than premarket assessment, the bar for quality of scientific evidence is high.



This webinar will look at key aspects of good clinical practice, specific areas of methodologic concern and challenges with bacterial strains to ensure a robust clinical program.
