Title: Prevention of functional gastrointestinal disorders in neonates: clinical and socioeconomic impact. [Review]
Source: Beneficial Microbes. 6(2):195-8, 2015.
Abstract: Infantile colic, gastro-oesophageal reflux and constipation are the most common functional gastrointestinal disorders (FGIDs) affecting infants during the first months of life. Despite infantile colic, functional constipation and regurgitation had a self-limited pattern, they are considered a risk factor for developing different disorders later in life. The pathophysiology of these functional diseases is still controversial but there is growing evidence that an abnormal gut microbiota colonisation may play a crucial role. An early probiotic supplementation could determine a change in colonisation and may represent a new strategy for preventing FGIDs.

I thought you should know that this article is indexed in PubMed, however I needed to remove the word "gastroesophageal" from my keywords to find it. Instead, I found it in PubMed just by searching "lactobacillus AND reflux", (with Review and last 5 years still selected). Why would this happen? Well, the reason for this is important to keep in mind as you search databases: this article used a slightly different spelling of the term ""gastroesophageal". Instead of spelling it as it's written in your assignment, they write it this way: "gastro-oesophageal". Hence, when you are searching, it is important to consider the variant spellings of clinical terms you are using. In this case, you can search ("gastro-oesophageal" OR "gastroesophageal"). Or, you could get more general and try dropping the term altogether and just use the word "reflux", since in the context of your research, we can assume that most articles that you find that include "reflux" and "lactobacillus" will relate to the GI tract.
Don't hesitate to ask if you have any questions about your ILLiad request, or need more help with this assignment.
