Probiotics in the Reduction of Antibiotic Associated Diarrhea

2015-10-28 14:38:23 | BioPortfolio

Summary

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.

Description

The study will include patients admitted to Good Samariatan Hospital and placed on the pneumonia order set. After obtaining consent, subjects will be randomized to the proboiotic or placebo group. Subjects will be followed for 21 days after starting the study treatment to determine critical outcomes such as incidence of antibiotic-associated diarrhea and C-Diff. Other outcomes include length of stay, healthcare costs, and death.

Medical and Biotech [MESH] Definitions

A common inhabitant of the colon flora in human infants and sometimes in adults. It produces a toxin that causes pseudomembranous enterocolitis (ENTEROCOLITIS, PSEUDOMEMBRANOUS) in patients receiving antibiotic therapy.

An acute inflammation of the INTESTINAL MUCOSA that is characterized by the presence of pseudomembranes or plaques in the SMALL INTESTINE (pseudomembranous enteritis) and the LARGE INTESTINE (pseudomembranous colitis). It is commonly associated with antibiotic therapy and CLOSTRIDIUM DIFFICILE colonization.

Type species of the genus CLOSTRIDIUM, a gram-positive bacteria in the family Clostridiaceae. It is used as a source of PROBIOTICS.

Infections with bacteria of the genus CLOSTRIDIUM.

Misunderstanding among individuals, frequently research subjects, of scientific methods such as randomization and placebo controls.
