Dr. Anthony Sung and Dr. Paul Wischmeyer at Duke University are looking for people to join their PROTECT-EHC study. Exposed household contacts (EHC) are people who live with someone with COVID-19 and therefore have an increased chance of contracting the virus.
We are doing this study is to see if taking a probiotic for 28 days can change the microbiome, or bacteria in the gut and nose. Participation could provide direct benefit as changing the microbiome with our probiotic may reduce symptomatic COVID-19 by 30-50%.
