Ferring has launched VSL#3, an ACBS-approved probiotic indicated for the maintenance of remission of ileoanal pouchitis induced by antibiotics in adults.

VSL#3 is a high strength probiotic with each sachet containing 450 billion live, freeze-dried bacteria consisting of eight strains that are capable of colonising the gastrointestinal tract.

The eight strains are S. thermophilus, B. breve, B. longum, B. infantis, L. acidophilus, L. plantarum, L. paracasei, and L. debrueckii subsp. bulgaricus.

The recommended dose is one to four sachets daily, mixed in a non-carbonated drink.
