There was a recent article in Cell Reports:

De Boeck et al. show that lactobacilli are decreased in patients with chronic rhinosinusitis and enriched in healthy controls. They isolate one strain adapted to the nasopharyngeal mucosa that shows beneficial probiotic effects and safety in the form of a nasal spray in healthy volunteers.

What do you think of this research? I was wondering if it might be helpful for my wife - she has developed a persistent turbinate swelling since she took a broad spectrum anaerobic antibiotic. My thinking is that the antibiotic may have killed off her nasal microbiome.
