ABSTRACT
The article studies beneficial effects of prebiotics, germinated barley foodstuff (GBF) in the long term treatment of ulcerative colitis (UC) through multicenter open control study. GBF is a prebiotic foodstuff that effectively increases luminal butyrate production by stimulating the growth of protective bacteria. The study revealed that oral GBF treatment may have the potential to prolong the remission period, in addition to decreasing clinical activity index during the active period. These results support the use of GBF administration as a new adjunctive UC treatment.
