Keywords Microbiota; Elderly; Probiotics; Antibiotic-associated diarrhea; Constipation
Core Tip The intestinal microbiota of elderly manifested a reduction in the diversity, characterized by a large interindividual variability, with lower numbers of Firmicutes, Bifidobacteria, Clostridium cluster XIV, Faecalibacterium Prausnitzii, Blautia coccoides-Eubacterium rectal and higher in Enterobacteriaceae and Bacteroidetes. These derangements may not necessarily aging-correlated, but they can be consequent to the decline of general state of health, malnutrition and increased use of drugs. As regards probiotics, the main double-blind studies in the elderly have shown that use is safe and could represent an interesting support to reduced frequency and/or duration of antibiotic-associated diarrhea, other than to help for constipation.
