Abstract

Over 1.3 billion persons are at risk for cholera globally. Vaccination campaigns are growing, but intervention options providing nearly immediate protection are also needed. Two recent papers in Science Translational Medicine describe probiotic bacteria that reduce intestinal colonization in animal models and show promise for development as prophylaxis agents.
