Summary

This study evaluates the effect of a symbiotic fermented milk on health-related quality of life and irritable bowel syndrome (IBS) symptoms in patients with constipation-predominant IBS.

Description

Irritable bowel syndrome (IBS) is one of the most common digestive disorders in the developed world which. It is associated to numerous symptoms, of which the most characteristic are recurrent pain or discomfort in the abdominal region, changes and difficulties related to bowel movements, and bloating. Although not dangerous, the disease may significantly impair the patients' quality of life. Treatment is symptomatic, but currently not very efficient. The use of probiotics in the treatment of IBS is a promising approach and has been the subject of much research in the last two decades.

The purpose of this randomized, placebo-controlled study is to assess changes in health-related quality of life in patients with constipation-predominant IBS after regular consumption of symbiotic fermented milk (containing probiotics and dietary fibres) and to assess its effects on some symptoms, like abdominal pain or discomfort, bloating, and chronic constipation.

Medical and Biotech [MESH] Definitions

Allergic reaction to milk (usually cow's milk) or milk products. MILK HYPERSENSITIVITY should be differentiated from LACTOSE INTOLERANCE, an intolerance to milk as a result of congenital deficiency of lactase.

A species of gram-positive, rod-shaped bacteria isolated from the intestinal tract of humans and animals, the human mouth, and vagina. This organism produces the fermented product, acidophilus milk.

The processes of milk secretion by the maternal MAMMARY GLANDS after PARTURITION. The proliferation of the mammary glandular tissue, milk synthesis, and milk expulsion or let down are regulated by the interactions of several hormones including ESTRADIOL; PROGESTERONE; PROLACTIN; and OXYTOCIN.

Expulsion of milk from the mammary alveolar lumen, which is surrounded by a layer of milk-secreting EPITHELIAL CELLS and a network of myoepithelial cells. Contraction of the myoepithelial cells is regulated by neuroendocrine signals.

The major protein constituents of milk are CASEINS and whey proteins such as LACTALBUMIN and LACTOGLOBULINS. IMMUNOGLOBULINS occur in high concentrations in COLOSTRUM and in relatively lower concentrations in milk. (Singleton and Sainsbury, Dictionary of Microbiology and Molecular Biology, 2d ed, p554)
