Blood Glucose Response After Oral Intake of Lactulose in Mildly Constipated Patients With Diabetes Mellitus Type 2

The objective of the study is to investigate whether lactulose, given orally as powder or liquid, increases blood glucose levels in patients with diabetes mellitus type 2. The dose of lact...

A Preference Study Comparing Kristalose® and Liquid Lactulose

This study will evaluate whether patients have an overall preference for Kristalose® or liquid lactulose based on taste, consistency, and portability.

Is Continuous Lactulose Therapy Necessary for Patients With Hepatic Encephalopathy? A Study of Controlled Lactulose Withdrawal

After resolution of the initial episode of hepatic encephalopathy (HE), lactulose is routinely continued indefinitely as maintenance therapy. Although widely used for this indication, la...

Efficacy of Combined Oral L-Ornithine-L-Aspartate and Lactulose in Patients With Hepatic Encephalopathy

Hypothesis: Is the combination of oral L-ornithine-L-aspartate and lactulose more efficacious than oral lactulose alone in treatment of hepatic encephalopathy? Study design; Randomized, do...

Lactulose for the Prevention of Nosocomial Infections in Children

Lactulose: patient- and dose-dependent prebiotic properties in humans.

Lactulose is a disaccharide used in clinical practice since 1957 and has since been tested in the treatment of many human disorders, including chronic constipation, hepatic encephalopathy, and chronic...

Enzymatic generation of lactulose in sweet and acid whey: Optimization of feed composition and structural elucidation of 1-lactulose.

Prebiotics are rising in interest in commercial scale productions due to increasing health awareness of consumers. Under bio-economic aspects, sweet and acid whey provide a suitable feed medium for th...

Measurement of intestinal permeability using lactulose and mannitol with conventional five hours and shortened two hours urine collection by two different methods: HPAE-PAD and LC-MSMS.

Urinary excretion of two orally-administered non-metabolizable sugars, lactulose and mannitol, is a valuable marker for evaluating intestinal permeability. Usually this test involves a time consuming ...

Simulation-guided enzyme discovery: A new microbial source of cellobiose 2-epimerase.

Cellobiose 2-epimerase (CE) is a promising industrial enzyme that can be utilized in the dairy industry. More thermostable CEs from different microorganisms are still needed for a higher lactulose pro...
