In May 10-12, BioGaia participated in the 51st ESPGHAN meeting, a pediatric congress with a special attention to the gastrointestinal tract, liver and nutritional status. The congress that took place in Geneva attracted around 4600 visitors from all around the world, mainly pediatricians but also nurses and dietitians. BioGaia was represented with a 36 sqm booth presenting Functional GI disorders in children with focus on infantile colic and functional abdominal pain. The interest was great with approx. 600 visitors in the booth and just like last year, we got the feeling that the benefits of probiotics continues to spread and grow. In addition, we hosted a symposium on Saturday morning on the theme “Looking beyond infant colic – Long term consequences and the role of Lactobacillus reuteri Protectis in functional abdominal pain and other disorders”. We had a Brilliant Minds Studio, a scientific symposium, where Professor Michael Cabana from the University of California hosted the session in a professional way and with our own Stefan Roos as one of the brilliant minds presenting the evolution and mode of action of L. reuteri Protectis. Dr. Iva Hojsak, Referral Center for Pediatric Gastroenterology and Nutrition Children’s Hospital, Zagreb, Croatia and Dr. Ruggiero Francavilla, Pediatric Gastroenterologist, Department of Interdisciplinary Medicine University of Bari, Italy were the two other guests. Besides the conference program, we arranged a gathering for the BioGaia Academy participants who were in Geneva. Dr Megumi Kubota and Dr Orjena Žaja presented their research and clinical findings with L. reuteri Protectis in functional constipation among children and nutritional recovery and treatment of constipation in children and adolescents with anorexia nervosa.

BioGaia at PPP – Probiotics and Prebiotics in Pediatrics

On April 12-14, BioGaia participated at the PPP-meeting which is the conference for Pro- and Prebiotics in Pediatrics. The congress that took place in Bari attracted almost 500 visitors from all around the world, all with a very special interest and belief in probiotics and prebiotics. BioGaia was represented with an 18 sqm booth presenting two main themes; Functional GI disorders in children with focus on infantile colic and the new concept “Mother and Child”. The latter is in short about the colonization theory of the baby’s microbiota, and more specifically how maternal bacteria are transferred from mother to baby. We know that this occur during vaginal delivery and breastfeeding but new discoveries point to that microbial communication may already start during pregnancy. A healthy maternal microbiota is therefore important for a healthy one in the offspring. On the booth wall, we high-lighted how L. reuteri Protectis can improve the microbiota in babies born by Cesarean section. In addition, we hosted a symposium on the theme “The importance of microbial exposure on the child during pregnancy and delivery. Can probiotics make a difference?” The setup was in the manner of Brilliant Minds Studio, where Professor Michael Cabana from the University of California hosted the session in an excellent way and with Dr. Flavia Indrio, neo-natologist and pediatric gastroenterologist, University of Bari, Italy, Dr. Thomas Abrahamsson, Neonatologist Crown Princess Victoria´s Children and Youth Hospital in Linköping, Sweden and Professor Maria Jenmalm, Faculty of Medicine and Health Sciences, Linköping University, Sweden as prominent guests. Besides the conference program, the marketing and sales department had a mini-workshop with our European partners, where we shared the latest scientific and marketing news and they got the chance to interact and share experience with each other.   The booth was a shining star compared to other exhibitors’ and the interest was great with nearly 300 visitors.
