ABSTRACT
Bacterial metabolism of oxidized sulphur containing compounds has been linked to ulcerative colitis. The synbiotic increased synthesis for messengerRNA of H25 detoxification enzymes, which could be a possible mechanism of its therapeutic benefit. This is a pilot study with small number of patients, and a large double blind randomized trial will now be done to confirm these results.
