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.
Diarrhea is one of the side effects of antibiotics. Antibiotic associated diarrhea can be encountered between two hours to two months after starting of antibiotics. The purpose of the study is to determine incidence,risk factors and severity of pediatric antibiotic associated diarrhea in Turkey.
The hypothesis is that there are unique sonographic characteristics of antibiotic-associated diarrhea. We will compare the ultrasound findings in patients who received antibiotics and developed diarrhea to toxin analysis for clostridium difficile in stool in order to find differences in the sonographic findings in the positive and negative cases.
To determine whether symptomatic treatment of the diarrhea in CDAD reduces morbidity and mortality of this serious nosocomial infection in patients who have antibiotic-associated diarrhea. Both C. diff positive and negative patients will be included.
Main research Question: The investigators would like to find out if both the Bio-K (lactobacillus acidophilus and lactobacillus casei) drink and capsule are equally effective in the prevention of diarrhea associated with antibiotic use. Why is this research project important? About 25% of patients who use antibiotics may develop diarrhea as a side effect. Symptoms are mild and consist of watery diarrhea and abdominal pain. Some patients may develop a more severe form of dia...
The study will evaluate the effectiveness of probiotic therapy in reducing the incidence of antibiotic associated diarrhea (AAD) and Clostridium difficile associated diarrhea (CDAD) in pneumonia patients.
Prospective randomized double-blind study on the effect of prebiotics (inulin and fructo-oligosaccharides) in the prevention of antibiotic-associated diarrhea in children.
In a previous study azithromycin proved as efficacious as levofloxacin in the treatment of travelers' diarrhea in Mexico. Because the addition of loperamide to some antibiotics (e.g., trimethoprim-sulfamethoxazole and ofloxacin) has proven more efficacious than antibiotic alone in the treatment of travelers' diarrhea, we decided to study the addition of loperamide to azithromycin. US adults with acute diarrhea in Guadalajara Mexico were randomized to receive azithromycin ...
To determine the effectiveness of the pre-biotic Bacillus clausii in preventing antibiotic associated diarrhea among hospitalized immunocompetent Filipino children.
The purpose of this study is to know the efficacy of the treatment with probiotics, Lactobacillus casei and Bifidobacterium breve, on clinical evidences and occurence of relapses on antibiotic-associated diarrhea.
The purpose of this study is to determine the dose response effect of probiotic capsules for the prevention of antibiotic-associated diarrhea (AAD).
This study is being conducted to investigate the potential benefits of probiotic intake for preventing antibiotic associated diarrhea and Clostridium difficile infection in patients undergoing a systemic antibiotic treatment. The primary research question is: can daily intake of kefir, a yogurt-like food containing probiotics, reduce the incidence of diarrhea and Clostridium difficile infection in patients during antibiotic treatment?
The purpose of this clinical study is to evaluate the effect of a four-week consumption of a fresh fermented dairy drink containing probiotic strains on Antibiotic-Associated Diarrhea and Gastro-Intestinal disorders in adult subjects treated for Helicobacter pylori eradication.
This prospective, multicenter, randomized, double-blind, placebo-controlled clinical study, into the group of children in the hospital that use clinical antibiotics from one month to three years old，by observing the given antibiotics at the same time with the whole bowel raw or placebo, prevent the happening of the antibiotic associated diarrhea, evaluate the whole bowel prevention clinical efficacy and safety of AAD.
The purpose of this study is to determine whether Lactobacillus acidophilus/rhamnosus complex is effective in the prevention of antibiotic-associated diarrhea (AAD) in the elderly.
The purpose of this study is to evaluate the efficacy and safety of Bio-K+ CL-1285 in the prevention of AAD and CDAD in hospitalized patients exposed to nosocomial infection.
Recent studies showed that intestinal microbiota consist more than thousand bacteria, and these microorganisms play the role as balance and continuity of the anatomical and functional integrity gastrointestinal tract. Chronic diseases, nutritional factors, lifestyle factors and medications including antibiotics changes the host microbiota in short or long-term period. Antibiotics are the most commonly used drugs in pediatrics routine practice. Although frequency and severity of...
The purpose of this study is to evaluate the efficacy and safety of Bio-K + CL1285 versus placebo in the prevention of antibiotic-associated diarrhea in hospitalized adult patients.
Most cases of travelers' diarrhea are caused by bacterial pathogens which respond slowly to antibiotic treatment.The study was designed to determine the value of rapidly acting loperamide (imodium) combined with curative dose of the poorly absorbed rifaximin in travelers' diarreha treatment.
This project is aimed to evaluate the efficacy of two different zinc formulations (dispersible Zinc tablets versus Zinc suspension) for the treatment of acute diarrhea in hospital based settings. Additionally we intend to compare the effectiveness of treatments of different groups on the basis of usage of Zinc in the treatment of diarrhoea, and to monitor additional treatment components such as ORS, antibiotic usage rates.
To assess the effect of a probiotic product, when co-administered with antibiotics, on gastrointestinal symptoms following antibiotic treatment in children.
Critical illness and the therapies that accompany it are associated with a disruption in the ecological equilibrium of the GI tract that can ultimately lead to infection. Lactobacillus GG, a probiotic, replenishes the healthy flora of the intestinal tract and may decrease the risk of diarrhea and infection during critical illness. However, little is known about the impact of probiotics following a burn injury and the mechanisms behind the proposed benefits. The hypothesis ...
Approximately 300 patients will be entered into this study taking place throughout the United States, Canada and the United Kingdom. This study aims to determine if an investigational drug is safe and effective for treating the symptoms of C. difficile-associated diarrhea and lowering the risk of repeat episodes of diarrhea. The investigational drug will be evaluated in comparison to current standard antibiotic treatment, so all patients will receive active medication. ...
Prospective, observational pilot study of ten post-transplant patients presenting with diarrhea while taking Mycophenolate Mofetil (MMF). These patients will undergo a standard workup to confirm MMF induced diarrhea. A stool fecal calprotectin will be measured to determine if it may be helpful in confirming the diagnosis of MMF associated diarrhea. Once the diagnosis is confirmed, the patients will then be treated with a short course of subcutaneous Octreotide which has been sh...
Probiotics are live microorganisms that, when administered in adequate amounts, confer a health benefit on the host. One of the most common indications for probiotic treatment is the prevention of antibiotic-associated diarrhea (AAD). Unfortunately, many probiotic products used for AAD are not supported by rigorous independent research, and often results in non-evidence-based usage. Our research group has worked closely with the Federal Drug Administration (FDA) to move researc...
