New study might help infants with colic

HOUSTON, TX (September16, 2013)

Researchers at the University of Texas Health Science Center are investigating whether a probiotic might help reduce gut inflammation in infants with colic and give families back their peace of mind.

"These are babies who cry for more than three hours a day, more than three days a week and more than three weeks of age and they get better between three to four months of age," said Dr. J. Marc Rhoads, professor and director of pediatric gastroenterology at the UTHealth Medical School and director of the Endoscopy Laboratory at Children's Memorial Hermann Hospital.
