The Oral Bacterial Extract (ORBEX) Study is a three year study to see whether the wheezing and lower respiratory tract illnesses that lead to asthma can be prevented. The goal is to find if a medication that is used in Europe, called Broncho-Vaxom®, can prevent wheezing lower respiratory infections in young children. It may work to stimulate a child’s immune system in order to increase the body’s defenses against germs that cause children to have respiratory illnesses.
