LiveSpo Pharma Emerges as Vietnam's Pioneer at Vitafoods Europe 2024

Unveiling Groundbreaking Research and Product Development to Reduce Antibiotic Use in Digestive and Respiratory Care

HANOI, VIETNAM - Media OutReach Newswire - 17 May 2024 - LiveSpo Pharma is the first Vietnamese entity to report on two clinical studies at the world's leading nutrition exhibition, Vitafoods Europe 2024, held in Geneva, Switzerland. LiveSpo Pharma showcased its range of high-concentration, multi-strain liquid medical probiotics products at the exhibition booth. This is a significant milestone, affirming the brand's international reputation and quality of LiveSpo medical probiotics products. This initiative aims to introduce Vietnamese medical probiotic products to the international market, gradually realizing the mission of "A Future Without Antibiotics."


Over the three-day exhibition, LiveSpo's booth attracted nearly 5,000 experts, partners, and visitors from pharmaceutical and functional food companies to explore and experience the displayed products. Among them, LiveSpo NAVAX - a spray form probiotic that reduces the concentration of respiratory syncytial virus (RSV) by 600 times, and LiveSpo DIA30 - a probiotic that supports the cessation of acute diarrhea within 30 minutes, were the main highlights, gaining the most attention from attendees. Their appealing competitive edge is shortening antibiotics treatment time for patients, thereby reducing antibiotic use for diseases related to the digestive and respiratory systems. Visitors to LiveSpo's booth had the opportunity to learn firsthand about the 13-year development journey from the idea to the production of these medical probiotic tubes, now meet international standards for distribution.

Making its debut at the premier European nutrition exhibition, LiveSpo demonstrates its ambition to widely disseminate safe, natural, and effective digestive and respiratory disease treatment methods using medical probiotics combined with standard treatment protocols.

In addition, LiveSpo Pharma is honored to be the first representative from Vietnam to present clinical research reports on medical probiotics at the Vitafoods Europe 2024. These research reports were published in Nature Scientific Reports, a highly reputable international journal in the field of science and technology, in 2022, 2023, and 2024. According to the first research report, LiveSpo NAVAX has been proven to be highly effective in bolstering the treatment of RSV and influenza-related respiratory tract infections, reducing treatment time and minimizing the possibility of long-term antibiotic treatment for patients. Combining the use of LiveSpo NAVAX spray with standard treatment protocols can reduce RSV and influenza virus concentrations by 600 and 400 times, respectively, and bacterial overgrowth concentrations by 65 times. This research is considered a significant step forward in supporting respiratory tract infection treatment, reducing prolonged antibiotic use, indirectly leading to antibiotic resistance and associated health and financial implications for patients.

The second clinical research report focuses on two probiotic products, LiveSpo CLAUSY and LiveSpo DIA30, which support the treatment of prolonged diarrhea. Clinical studies have shown that LiveSpo CLAUSY and LiveSpo DIA30 can reduce antibiotic use by approximately 25% compared to standard treatment protocols, while shortening the overall treatment time for diarrhea patients by 3 to 4 days. Additionally, the combined use of probiotics in treatment helps reduce the overall treatment costs (for prescriptions and inpatient care). Most importantly, these studies have proven the safety of LiveSpo products for children under 2 years old.

LiveSpo probiotics have received significant attention and high praise from international experts at the Vitafoods Europe 2024 exhibition, once again affirming the contributions of the company's research and innovations to community healthcare. For the first time, a Vietnamese probiotic brand has been recognized and hailed at international conferences and exhibitions worldwide, surprising international experts with the novelty and breakthrough of its products which is rapid and clear efficacy. Prior to this, LiveSpo had participated in three major conferences and exhibitions in Europe and the United States from 2019 to 2023.

Sharing at the exhibition, Dr. Nguyen Hoa Anh, Chair of the Board of Directors and R&D Director of LiveSpo Pharma, said, "LiveSpo Pharma is proud to introduce the Bacillus probiotic products at the Vitafoods Europe 2024 exhibition. This product line has been researched, developed, and produced according to international standards. LiveSpo products have been clinically proven to be highly efficient in supporting the treatment of digestive and respiratory diseases, thus, playing a significant role in reducing the total amount of antibiotics used in treatment protocols. With such efforts from the LiveSpo Pharma scientific team, we hope to accompany the community in building a future without antibiotics."

In recent years, probiotic technology has garnered significant attention from the scientific community thanks to its potential economic, social, and medical values. Currently, 72% of antibiotics are used to treat respiratory tract infections, while the figure for digestive diseases is 20%. Patients, especially children who have weak immune system, are susceptible to the side effects of antibiotics when undergoing prolonged treatment. Such treatment protocol is likely to include the use of 2-3 antibiotics. LiveSpo probiotic products have been clinically researched to reduce antibiotic use and shorten treatment times for the diseases mentioned above, while quickly balancing gut and nasal microbiota within 3-5 days of use. As a result, patients can recover quickly, and treatment costs are lowered. This also reduces the pressure on healthcare manpower and resources while strengthening the workforce of society and laying the foundation for economic development. In terms of health, probiotic support treatments can minimize the possibility of adding new generation antibiotics in the treatment protocols thanks to its highly effective immune-regulating support and natural protective barrier enhancement. In addition, it reduces the side effects of antibiotics such as digestive disorders and the risk of antibiotic resistance in future cases.
