clinical efficacy of probiotics
KUNSHAN, CHINA, December 13, 2018 – Today, DuPont Nutrition & Health presented on the latest developments on clinical research, market insights and trends on global probiotics products at the 3rd Probiotics and Health Medical Science Summit. Top food safety and clinical experts in China exchanged the standards and safety of probiotics and domestic clinical research results with focus on digestion, immunity, women's & children's health, and internal microbiota regulation. The summit attracted close to 50 chief physicians from the Department of Gastroenterology, Nutrition, Dermatology, Endocrinology and Internal Medicine of leading Third-Level Grade-A hospitals across the country.
