Enteroadsorbent Polymethylsiloxane vs Probiotic Lactobacillus Reuteri in the Treatment of Rotaviral Gastroenteritis

2019-10-10 09:39:38 | BioPortfolio

Summary

This study evaluates a new drug, new enteroadsorbent polymethylsiloxane (Enterosgel) in the treatment of rotavirus gastroenteritis in children. Half of the participants received a new drug, polymethylsiloxane and half of the participants received standard treatment - probiotic L. reuteri (BioGaia).

Description

Polymethylsiloxane and probiotic L. reuteri both hasten symptoms of the rotavirus gastroenteritis but they do so by a different mode of action.

Polymethylsiloxane is an enteroadsorbent and it possibly acts by adsorption of viruses and doing so it prevents binding rotaviruses for enterocytes. Another mode of action can be forming a thin layer over the mucosal surfaces thus protects them from various damaging factors.

Probiotics help the healing of the intestinal mucosa presumably in few ways - by normalization of gut flora, by competition with pathogen bacteria for binding sites and nutrients and by stimulation of intestinal immune system.
