The Clinical Guide made an appearance in Barcelona!


The Probiotic Chart’s author, Dragana Skokovic-Sunjic, presented the Clinical Guide to Probiotic Products Available in Canada as a Scientific Frontiers Poster presentation at the IPA World Congress + Probiota in Barcelona February 7th to 9th, 2018. More

The conference, held this past February, brought the science and business worlds together with more than 300 attendees engaging in sessions and workshops on various topics including the importance of microbiota in the first 1000 days of life, modulating the microbiome for sports performance, and targeting diseases through the microbiome. Dragana’s poster, showcasing the Clinical Guide to Probiotic Products 2018, highlighted the methods to finding specific and appropriate probiotics based on patient indication or need. With a major focus on patients’ expectations from healthcare professionals when selecting the correct probiotic, Dragana displayed the significance of translating these scientific findings into an easily applicable and accessible format. Her poster presentation also discussed the exponential growth of research in this field, demonstrating the ongoing nature of this project. The information Dragana provided was met with lively discussion and acceptance.
