Probiotic Consortia Improve Anti-viral Immunity

Time: 2:20 pm
day: Track A - Evening - Day One


In this presentation we show that the two probiotic consortia:

  • Reduced nasal wash viral load in ferrets challenged with SARS-CoV-2
  • Modulated cytokine, chemokine, and IFN gene expression profiles in ferret lungs and duodenum during infection
  • Modulated ACE2 expression in ferret duodenum during infection
  • Upregulated genes and cytokines in human monocyte-derived macrophage and dendritic cells critical for early innate immune activation against SARS-CoV-2
