pI found the following article under the "In the News" section of a weekly e-newsletter I receive from [url="http://www.babycenter.com"]www.babycenter.com[/url] - It is parallel research to a study I'd read earlier this year on newborns receiving a vaccine of "good" bacteria to help the immune system ward off allergies./p
pWhile this research is promising, it is not past clinical trials yet, but perhaps there IS hope that PA will start to diminish in numbers, once this study is proven safe, and implemented into prenatal care:/p

pFinnish researchers from the Turku University Hospital studied 132 pregnant women with family histories of allergies. At random, half the women took capsules of Lactobacillus rhamnosus/p
