Both VSL#3 and LGG significantly ameliorated colitis induced by the sulfhydryl-blocker iodoacetamide, but had no effect on the immune-mediated DNBS-induced colitis. The results suggest a possible role for sulfhydryl compounds in the protective effect of probiotic bacteria, and support their use in patients with inflammatory bowel disease.
