Effect of Probiotic on Antibiotic-Associated Diarrhea

2010-07-15 17:00:00 | BioPortfolio

Summary

Diarrhea is a common side effect of antibiotics; it may prolong hospital stay, increase the risk of other infections, develop into more serious forms of disease, and lead to premature discontinuation of the needed antibiotic. The purpose of this study is to examine the safety and effectiveness of a capsule containing Lactobacillus rhamnosus GG in the prevention of diarrhea associated with antibiotic use.
