Mission: Winclove Probiotics produces probiotic food supplements to treat inflammatory bowel disease, eczema, allergy, constipation, diarrhea, vaginal infections, and even depression. Such a wide range of applications stem from the close link between the microorganisms living in our gut and human health.

Comment: the company took part this week in Mind, Mood & Microbes, the first international conference on microbiota-gut-brain axis. This novel field is starting to yield innovative clinical applications that target the human microbiome, including immuno-oncology.
