Review: chronic and persistent diarrhea with a focus in the returning travelerTravelers' diarrhea is a common malady afflicting up to 50% of travelers after a 2-week travel period. An appreciable percentage of these cases will become persistent or chronic. We summarized the published literature reporting persistent/chronic diarrhea in travelers elucidating current understanding of disease incidence, etiology and regional variability.We searched electronic databases (Medline, Embase (...) heterogeneity statistics, graphically represented with Forest plots.We identified 19 studies meeting the inclusion criteria (all published after 1999). 18 studies reported upon the incidence of persistent/chronic diarrhea as a syndromic diagnosis in returning travelers; one study reported adequate denominator data from which to assess pathogen specific etiology. Giardiasis comprise an appreicaible percentage of infectious mediated persistent/chronic diarrhea in returning travelers. The overall estimate

Management of traveller'sdiarrhoea with a combination of sodium butyrate, organic acids, and A-300 silicon dioxide. Traveller'sdiarrhoea (TD), defined by UNICEF/WHO as three or more unformed stools with or without other symptoms, imposes a considerable burden on travellers from developed countries. Various efforts have focused on decreasing the prevalence and severity of this condition.To assess the efficacy of a combination of sodium butyrate, organic acids, and A-300 silicon dioxide (...) in treatment providing symptomatic relief of TD.The study was conducted in accordance with a protocol presented to the Bioethical committee of Poznan University of Medical Sciences. A total of 278 patients travelling to countries with higher risk of diarrhoea for at least 10 days were divided into a study arm being administered, in case of TD, a combination of sodium butyrate, organic acids, and A-300 silicon dioxide (n = 139) and a placebo arm (n = 139) with placebo administration.Forty-seven patients

Use of a patch containing heat-labile toxin from Escherichia coli against travellers' diarrhoea: a phase II, randomised, double-blind, placebo-controlled field trial. Enterotoxigenic Escherichia coli (ETEC) is a major cause of travellers' diarrhoea. We investigated the rate of diarrhoea attacks, safety, and feasibility of a vaccine containing heat-labile enterotoxin (LT) from ETEC delivered to the skin by patch in travellers to Mexico and Guatemala.In this phase II study, healthy adults (aged (...) 18-64 years) who planned to travel to Mexico or Guatemala and had access to a US regional vaccination centre were eligible. A centralised randomisation code was used for allocation, which was masked to participants and site staff. Primary endpoints were to investigate the field rate of ETEC diarrhoea, and to assess the safety of heat-labile toxins from E coli (LT) delivered via patch. Secondary endpoints included vaccine efficacy against travellers' diarrhoea and ETEC. Participants were

Antibiotic treatment for travellers' diarrhoea. Traveller'sdiarrhoea is a syndrome frequently encountered in persons crossing an international boundary. Diarrhoea can lead to significant discomfort and interference with travel plans. Bacterial pathogens are a frequent cause of this syndrome. Several antibiotics have been tested for efficacy in reducing the duration and severity of the illness.The aims of this review were to assess the effects of antibiotics on traveller'sdiarrhoea in relation (...) to duration of illness, severity of illness, and adverse effects of medications.The Cochrane Collaboration Trials Register, MEDLINE, and EMBASE were searched. Additional trials were identified by hand searching. Content experts were contacted.All trials in any language in which travellers older than 5 years were randomly allocated to treatment for acute non-bloody diarrhoea with antibiotics and where the causative organism is not known at allocation.Two reviewers assessed trial quality and extracted

Randomised trial of single-dose ciprofloxacin for travellers' diarrhoea. Diarrhoea is the most common illness affecting travellers to developing countries. Our study was designed to compare the efficacy of a single 500 mg dose of ciprofloxacin with placebo for treatment of acute diarrhoea in travellers. British troops who were within their first 8 weeks of deployment in Belize and who presented within 24 h of the onset of diarrhoea, were randomized to receive either ciprofloxacin 500 mg (...) of ciprofloxacin was an effective empirical treatment for reducing the duration and severity of diarrhoea in travellers. The regimen should maximise compliance and reduce the cost and duration of therapy.

Oral aztreonam, a poorly absorbed yet effective therapy for bacterial diarrhea in US travelers to Mexico. To evaluate a poorly absorbed antimicrobial with in vitro activity against all major bacterial enteropathogens in oral therapy for bacterial diarrhea.One hundred ninety-one US students with diarrhea acquired in Mexico received 100 mg of aztreonam or matching placebo three times a day for 5 days. Stools were cultured for bacterial enteropathogens before and after therapy.We studied US (...) students who acquired diarrhea in Mexico (travelers' diarrhea) in view of the high frequency of bacterial agents in this setting.We examined time of clinical recovery, treatment failures, adverse experiences, and microbiologic eradication from stool of the etiologic agent in subjects randomized to receive aztreonam or placebo.Aztreonam reduced the average duration of diarrhea compared with the placebo: for all cases, by 40 hours (P much less than .01); for those with enterotoxigenic Escherichia coli
Prevention of travellers' diarrhoea by oral B-subunit/whole-cell cholera vaccine. B-subunit/whole-cell cholera vaccine (BS-WC) has been shown to give Bangladeshi mothers and children only 3 months' protection against severe diarrhoea due to enterotoxigenic Escherichia coli (ETEC). Since a long-lasting effect is not necessary for protection against travellers' diarrhoea, a prospective double-blind study was conducted among tourists who went to Morocco from Finland. 307 tourists received two oral (...) doses of BS-WC, whereas 308 controls received a placebo before departure. A research team went out with tourists and a laboratory for enteric pathogens was set up on location. A faecal specimen was taken from 100 randomly selected subjects before departure, from all travellers with diarrhoea, and routinely after return. Enteropathogenic bacteria were not isolated from any of the pre-departure specimens but were present during or after the holiday in 47% of tourists with travellers' diarrhoea
Treatment of traveler'sdiarrhea with sulfamethoxazole and trimethoprim and loperamide. In a randomized, double-blind, placebo-controlled trial, 227 US adults with acute diarrhea in Mexico received a single dose of sulfamethoxazole and trimethoprim (1600/320 mg) or 3 days of therapy with loperamide hydrochloride (4-mg loading dose, then 2 mg orally after each loose stool), sulfamethoxazole-trimethoprim (800/160 mg orally twice daily), or the combination of both. Subjects treated (...) ). The combination of sulfamethoxazole-trimethoprim plus loperamide can be highly recommended for the treatment of most patients with traveler'sdiarrhea.
