Atopic dermatitis is a chronic, recurrent and allergic skin disease characterised by intense itching, inflammation, impaired skin barrier function and intermittent outbreaks. It is most prevalent in children (> 20%) but is also found in adults. It is also associated with an increase in other diseases, such as asthma, allergic rhinitis and chronic sinusitis.
The routine treatment is based on the use of topical corticosteroids, which in the long term have limited efficacy and a higher prevalence of side effects, and the use of systemic drugs (oral corticosteroids, immunosuppressants, monoclonal antibodies, etc.), which are more effective, but produce considerable toxic effects and increase the risk of rebound effect after treatment.
ALTERNATIVE TREATMENT WITH PROBIOTICS
In seeking safe alternative treatments with probiotics, a double-blind, randomised, placebo-controlled clinical trial was conducted in which the efficacy of a probiotic mixture was evaluated in children and adolescents up to 17 years of age with atopic dermatitis.
The investigational product consisted of one capsule per day containing a mixture of freeze-dried probiotic strains at a concentration of 1×10^9 cfu or a maltodextrin-based placebo capsule, once daily, for 12 weeks.
These research results were published in Jama Dermatology.
EVALUATION OF RESULTS.
Following evaluation of the results of the 50 patients included in the study, it was observed:
Patients in the probiotic group reduced their SCORAD index (which quantifies the severity of the disease) by up to 77%.
Compared to 22.7% in the placebo group. There was a statistically significant reduction in the intensity and extent of eczema and in corticosteroid use compared to the placebo group.
The results showed the great potential of the probiotic mixture patented by Bioithas as a treatment for atopic dermatitis, which led to the filing of PCT international application WO2018015388 for its use in this pathology worldwide.
