Figure 1 Represents the consort diagram for the study that indicates the number of participants that matriculated through the study. Subjects were carefully screened for exclusion/inclusion criteria and if qualified were enrolled in the study. Consistent with our preliminary data 2 out of every 6 subjects presented a dietary/metabolic endotoxin response following consumption of the high-fat meal. A total of 26 individuals were identified to have the “responder” phenotype and were randomized to participate in either the probiotic or placebo condition.
