The introduction of Infloran1 to Australia began in 2012 when a team from Sydney’s Nepean Hospital embarked on finding a suitable probiotic for preterm infants.
The principle was to help colonise the gut with beneficial bacteria, those found in healthy breastfed infants to support immune function and assist with healthy digestion.
Infloran® was carefully selected and is today administered in most Australian Neonatal and Special Care Hospitals Units, a testament to its quality, safety and clinical efficacy.
