Urinary tract infection can be regarded as one of the most common community-acquired, hospital-acquired and recurrent types of infection. Probiotics are an effective alternative to prevent a large share of these hospital-acquired infections. The idea of using these microorganisms for medical treatment has existed for many years. Evidence from laboratory research as well as from clinical trials exists to demonstrate the therapeutic effects of live microorganisms, if used in appropriate dosage and setting. Investigation and trials with probiotics have so far covered a wide range of diseases and included the prevention and treatment of caries and tonsillitis[41,42]; gastrointestinal disease like acute and chronic diarrhoea, irritable bowel syndrome and Helicobacter pylori infection. The RUTI is a significant healthcare problem worldwide for many women and even more so in specific patient populations. Patients with spinal cord injury and neurogenic bladder as well as patients with long-term urinary catheter all share the problem of RUTI. These patients do have more complicated UTI and develop resistance to standard antibiotics. The recent reports on MRSA, C. difficile and other problem pathogens in the UK leave no doubt that alternative, preventive and economic therapeutic options to antibiotics are urgently needed.
