  Purpose

This study was designed to evaluate the efficacy of probiotics in the treatment of atopic dermatitis. Probiotics in AD patients were effective in reducing SCORAD index levels, but not effective in skin prick test positivity, serum IL-2-4-5-6-10, TNF-α, IFN-γ, ECP, and serum total and specific IgE levels.

Detailed Description:

Frequently encountered in clinical practice, in the last 30 years, the prevalence of AD has rapidly increased as a result of industrialization. Thus, a new wave of quests for the treatment and prevention of AD has pushed forward. For the randomized, double-blinded, and placebo-controlled study this study was designed to evaluate the efficacy of probiotics in the treatment of AD. SCORAD positivity index of decline rates decline rates of the probiotic group of patients after treatment and skin prick tests were higher than that of the control group. While serum levels of IL-2-4-5-6-10, TNF-α, IFN-γ, ECP decreased in the probiotic group, only levels of IL-2-4-5, TNF-α decreased in the control group. The IgE decrease rate, the skin prick test, the serum total and specific of the probiotic group showed no difference from those of the control group. Probiotics in AD patients were effective in reducing SCORAD index levels, but not effective in skin prick test positivity, serum IL-2-4-5-6-10, TNF-α, IFN-γ, ECP, and serum total and specific IgE levels.
