Interim report on an RCT for prophylactic treatment with S. salivarius K12, showing significantly lower cases with treatment. Only patients with symptoms or known positive contacts were tested. Trial identification/registration details are not provided.
The immune effects of probiotics are strain-specific.
risk of case, 98.0% lower, RR 0.02, p < 0.001, treatment 0 of 64 (0.0%), control 24 of 64 (37.5%), NNT 2.7, relative risk is not 0 because of continuity correction due to zero events (with reciprocal of the contrasting arm).
Effect extraction follows pre-specified rules prioritizing more serious outcomes. Submit updates

Unfortunately, natural immunity does not exist within the human population and no effective drug has been found thus far specifically for the disease. Incredibly, scientists from all over the world have developed some effective vaccines at an unprecedented pace.1 Unfortunately, vaccine manufacturing and distribution are two important bottlenecks. For this reason, vaccination schedules are proceeding more slowly than they should and was perhaps expected. While waiting for the current vaccination campaigns to produce the herd effect desired by each individual country, COVID-19 research has produced new lines of scientific thought. For instance, recent evidence showed the possible relationship between the lung and oral microbiotas. Indeed, analysis of the bronchoalveolar lavage fluid (BALF) of COVID-19 patients revealed the presence of elevated levels of oral and upper respiratory commensal bacteria.2 Anatomical and physiological considerations indicate that the oral cavity is the primary source of the lung microbiota community, acquired via aspiration and inhalation.3 Indeed, the microbiota of the lungs overlaps with that found in the mouth. In humans, the prominent taxa in BALF samples include mainly Streptococcus, Prevotella and Veillonella, and these are indeed detected in concurrently collected oral samples. Recent studies have shown that the microbiota in the lungs contributes to immunological homeostasis and can potentially alter susceptibility to viral infection.4 With respect to COVID-19, a particular abundance of Prevotella and Veillonella spp. in the lung microbiota composition has been observed in patients with SARS-CoV-2 pneumonia.5 A report by Iebba et al.6 (not yet peer-reviewed) profiled the oral microbiota of healthy controls and COVID-19-hospitalized patients, discovering the existence of four..
