Ulcers are commonly caused by H. pylori. Research appearing in Inflammation & Allergy–Drug Targets (Volume: 11, Issue: 3, Year: June 2012, Pages: 244-249) looked at 80 patients with H. pylori and the effect supplementation with probiotics had on their condition. The subjects were given either a placebo or a supplement containing eight species of probiotic bacteria for a period of 10 days. One month later stool samples were tested for H. pylori stool antigen and given a urea breath test one month later. The testing revealed that 13 out of the 40 subjects given the probiotic were free of H. pylori one month after the supplementation.
