Specificity for H. pylori: While probiotics cater to general gut health, Pylopass specifically binds H. pylori in the stomach. Furthermore, Pylopass does not bind or disturb the normal gut microbial balance. Stability in gastric conditions: In contrast to probiotics, Pylopass employs a mechanism that is not dependent on survival in the gastric environment.
Probiotics can be beneficial because they may replace harmful bacteria in the gastrointestinal tract.
However, it is uncertain whether such living probiotic strains can withstand the acidic environment in the stomach. This concern is not a challenge for Pylopass as the coaggregation depends only on the binding of surface structures between Pylopass and H. pylori.
