One of the studies included in this review [1] assessed a probiotic formulation known as VSL# 3. The probiotic formulation that was assessed in this study is now known by the generic name ‘De Simone Formulation’. The current product known as VSL# 3 is not the same formulation as the original product invented by Professor De Simone. The authors would like to apologise for any inconvenience caused.
