Probiotics may reduce gut problems in connection with cancer radiotherapy

A randomized, double-blind, placebo-controlled trial with Probi’s probiotic strains was shown to reduce gastrointestinal problems for women receiving pelvic radiotherapy.

The 3-armed study included 75 women with gynecological cancer receiving pelvic radiotherapy. The patients were either given a high or a low dose of the combined probiotic strains Lactiplantibacillus plantarum HEAL9 (HEAL9TM) and Lactiplantibacillus plantarum 6595 or placebo. The study was conducted on two sites in Sweden.

When receiving radiotherapy in connection with gynecological cancer, women often experience gastrointestinal problems during and after the therapy. This study showed significantly reduced severity and frequency of both abdominal pain and defecation urgency.

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