Antibiotics prevent UTIs better than probiotics

Antibiotics are still better than probiotics at preventing urinary tract infections, but at least "good bacteria" don't add to a person's antibiotic resistance, a new study concludes.

Recurring UTIs are common among some women and low-dose antibiotics are sometimes used to prevent them. The worry is that overuse of the drugs also reduces their effectiveness by making disease-causing bacteria like E. coli resistant.

"This is an increasing worldwide problem, resulting into less and less treatment options for (severe) bacterial infections in all countries of the world," Dr. Suzanne Geerlings, from the Academic Medical Center at the University of Amsterdam in The Netherlands and one of the new study's authors, wrote in an email to Reuters Health.
