Projects per year
The “Probiotic Research Initiative™” is a collaboration between Deerland Probiotics and Enzymes (Hundested, Denmark) and the Regenerative Medicine group at the Department of Health Science and Technology of Aalborg University, aiming to enhance the effectiveness of research across academia and industry related to the application of probiotics in health and disease.
Deerland is an innovative and reliable supplier of finished probiotic solutions of high quality and documented stability. their products are classified and documented as dietary food supplements. In collaboration with the orthopedic and fertility departments of Aalborg University Hospital, the Probiotic Research Initiative™, is focused on the development of innovative interdisciplinary approaches to test basic research in the clinical setting in a very efficient manner.
This collaborative research initiative, led by Fereshteh Dardmeh (D.V.M., Ph.D.) facilitates and provides the opportunity and platform for multidisciplinary in-vitro and in-vivo research at all levels from cell- and basic- studies, to animal studies with a translational nature, and finally human clinical trials.
By further enhancing the crosstalk between the industry and academia, the “Probiotic Research Initiative™” aims to develop, plan and deliver larger projects focusing on a wider range of domains in relation to probiotics and health sciences with the aim of bringing the bench closer to the bed.
The current ongoing studies and areas of interest include:
- Probiotics for the treatment of chronic wounds (in diabetic animal models)
- Probiotics alone and in combination with stem cell therapy
- Probiotics and Fertility
- Male and female fertility potential
- Recurrent abortions
- Management of obesity and lipid profiles
- Probiotics and Pain
- Management of chronic pain
- Pain sensitivity and nociception
- Clinical study on the effect of probiotics in Osteoarthritis
