The World Gastroenterology Organisation has updated its 2008 practice guideline for probiotics and prebiotics. Of special interest are the updated Tables 8 and 9, which summarize the probiotic or prebiotic, dose and grading of evidence for a number of GI clinical conditions for which there is evidence. The table is global in focus, and the document – available now in English – will be available in other languages soon. WGO Practice Guideline – Probiotics and Prebiotics – 2011.
