Core Tip A meta-analysis was conducted (1960-2014) for randomized clinical trials testing single strained probiotics as an adjunct to standard Helicobacter pylori (H. pylori) eradication therapy. Of the single strains with multiple trials, only one significantly improved H. pylori eradication rates {Saccharomyces boulardii (S. boulardii) I-745 [pooled relative risks (pRR) = 1.11, 95%CI: 1.07-1.16)]}, while two strains significantly reduced the rate of antibiotic-associated diarrhea [S. boulardii I-745 (pRR = 0.47, 95%CI: 0.37-0.60) and Lactobacillus rhamnosus GG (pRR = 0.29, 95%CI: 0.17-0.48)]. None of the other four probiotic strains improved H. pylori therapy (C. butyricum, L. acidophilus, L. reuteri, L. casei).
