The investigators aim to investigate whether the routine use of the probiotic formulation VSL#3 co-prescribed with antibiotics reduces the incidence of both Antibiotic associated diarrhoea and Clostridium Difficile associated diarrhoea.
Traveler's diarrhoea or turista is the most common disease in travelers. It has been reported based on studies in 20 to 60% of travelers, depending among other conditions and travel destinations. Currently, less than 30% of the etiology of diarrhoea is identified by bacteriological v,irological and parasitology traditional techniques. This ignorance of the diarrhoea etiology causes difficulties in the establishment of a specific and rapid management in this extremely common con...
Many patients suffer from chronic diarrhoea after surgical treatment for cancer in the right side of the colon. The investigators' main hypothesis is that colon cancer patients with chronic diarrhoea have a higher risk of bile acid malabsorption compared with colon cancer patients without diarrhoea. The investigators also expect that a part of the cases of bile acid malabsorption is caused by underlying bacterial overgrowth in the small bowel. The investigators a...
Irritable bowel syndrome is a common condition affecting 1 in 10 of the population. About a third of these suffer from diarrhoea, which severely impairs their quality of life. Previous studies in Nottingham have suggested that some patients with diarrhoea may have an excess of a chemical called serotonin in their gut. Serotonin stimulates secretion and propulsion in the gut and contributes to diarrhoea. We are interested to see whether a drug, Ondansetron, which blocks the e...
Assessment of the impact of oral Human Milk Oligosaccharides (HMO) application on acute diarrhoea and the development of prolonged and persistent diarrhoea in paediatric patients hospitalized with acute diarrhoea.
A point-of-care laboratory (POC) was set at North Hospital, Marseille, France for the diagnosis in less than two hours of diarrhoea caused by known pathogens, close to the reception of Emergency service. In this instance 30% of patients have no etiological diagnosis after the POC diarrhoea tests . This lab has discovered over 200 new species of bacteria in humans, including vector bacteria and opened the field of large Deoxyribonucleic Acid (DNA ) viruses. Also, the laboratory ...
The purpose of this study is to evaluate the effectiveness of Smecta at decreasing stool weight, when compared to placebo, in the treatment of acute diarrhoea in children.
Bile acid diarrhoea is a chronic disease that impairs quality of life. One in 100 has the condition and many suffer from the disease without knowing. The current test is called SeHCAT and is expensive and time-consuming and is unavailable in many places, including the US. The disease is often misdiagnosed as irritable bowel syndrome and estimated one third of patients with irritable bowel syndrome of the mixed type and the diarrhoea predominant type suffer from bile acid diarrh...
The aim of the study is to investigate the efficacy of the prophylactic treatment with rifaximin to prevent travellers diarrhoea.
The purpose of the study is to demonstrate that diosmectite efficacy is superior to placebo regarding time to recovery of an acute diarrhoea episode presumed of infectious origin in adult subjects.
Diarrhoea continues to be a major cause of mortality and morbidity in young children especially in many developing countries. Although the mortality burden of diarrhoea has substantially reduced, the morbidity pattern remained almost unchanged. Recent randomized controlled supplementation trials in developing countries have consistently shown that zinc has the potential to reduce the duration of diarrhoea as well as has preventive effect on childhood diarhroea in subsequent mon...
This service evaulation aims to investigate how common diarrhoea is in hospital patients on medical, surgical and elderly care wards, what it is due to and how it is managed.
Patients with traveller's diarrhoea frequently harbour Extended Spectrum Betalactamase (ESBL)-producing Enterobacteriaceae (EPE) returning from EPE-endemic areas. This study investigates to what extent travellers returning to Sweden with traveller's diarrhoea carry ESBL in their stool. The isolates are examined further according to species, phenotype, antibiogram and whole genome sequencing.
Although the current World Health Organization (WHO) recommended management package for acute diarrhoea (ORS, zinc and feeding advice) has contributed to significant reductions in diarrhoea associated mortality, over half a million children continue to die annually as a result of acute diarrhoeal episodes. In addition, rates of mortality in young children in the 90 days following an episode of acute diarrhoea appear at least as high as mortality that occurs during the acute epi...
To assess the safety and the preliminary efficacy data on the three doses of the new Cosmo Technologies oral rifamycin SV colon-release 200 mg tablets manufactured according to MMX technology (CB-01-11) in the treatment of infectious diarrhoea.
There is a relative high prevalence of constipation and antibiotic-associated diarrhoea (AAD) in the elderly residents of nursing homes, mainly due to high antibiotic and medication usage. Constipation and diarrhoea causes a substantial burden on lives of the frail elderly and significantly reduces the quality of life (QoL). In addition, these circumstances lead to a higher workload for healthcare workers and treatment of constipation and diarrhoea increase costs in healthcare....
Many children admitted to hospital in Botswana without bloody diarrhoea are presumed to have viral gastroenteritis and so not treated with antibiotics - but they may indeed have a treatable cause for their illness. We will conduct a randomized trial to see if rapid testing using novel methods to identify potentially treatable causes of diarrhoea leads to improved outcomes. We will also be randomizing children to probiotic therapy versus placebo (the standard of care) to see i...
Efforts are continuing to improve the efficacy of oral rehydration solution in terms of reducing the severity (stool volume) and duration of diarrhoea (enhancement of recovery). Antimicrobial peptides, produced by the epithelial cells, represent an important component of the innate immunity of all epithelial surfaces of the body including intestine. Induction of expression of antimicrobial peptides on epithelial cell surface, may thus hasten recovery from infectious diarrhoea. ...
Diarrhoea continues to be a major cause of child deaths. Current treatment of acute watery diarrhoea includes oral rehydration solution (ORS), zinc and continued feeding. The use of zinc is based on a number of studies that showed that zinc reduces the duration and severity of diarrhoea. The recommended dose of zinc in 6-59 month old children is 20mg/day for 10-14 days. This dose is associated with an increased risk of vomiting. No dosing studies are available to determine the ...
Irritable Bowel Syndrome with diarrhoea (IBS-D) is a functional gastrointestinal disorder characterised by chronic or recurrent abdominal pain or discomfort and diarrhoea. This trial aims at the evaluation of the efficacy and safety of oral ibodutant 10 mg once daily as compared to placebo in women with IBS-D over a 12-week treatment period.

Probiotics has been known as a dietary supplement for a long period. Recent clinical trials indicate that probiotics might have an effect in preventing common infection diseases in children. The investigators hypothesis is: if young children in the age of 6 month to 15 mdr. has a daily intake of a suspension containing probiotics in a period of 9 months, the incidence of diarrhoea and respiratory diseases can be reduced.
Patients with the chronic bowel disease pouchitis is disabled by bloody diarrhoea and abdominal pain often followed by fever. Pouchitis is an inflammation in a pouch, a reservoir formed by the small intestine in the management of the chronic inflammatory bowel disease, ulcerative colitis. Chronic pouchitis is a rare disease with a prevalence in Denmark of
Travelling to tropical and subtropical countries is a known risk factor for becoming colonized with extended-spectrum beta-lactamase (ESBL)-producing Enterobacteriaceae. Especially travellers returning from the Indian subcontinent show high colonization rates of up to almost 90%. While risk factors for becoming colonized have been identified in several studies, no preventive measure has been tested so far. One of the factors associated with becoming colonized while trav...
A placebo controlled study to determine the efficacy and mode of action of ondansetron in the treatment of irritable bowel syndrome with diarrhoea.
