A randomised trial of ondansetron for the treatment of irritable bowel syndrome with diarrhoea Irritable bowel syndrome with diarrhoea (IBS-D) is particularly debilitating due to urgency and episodic incontinence. Some 5-hydroxytryptamine 3 (5-HT3) receptor antagonists (5-HT3RAs) have proven effective but have serious side effects. Ondansetron, also a 5-HT3RA, has been widely used as an antiemetic with an excellent safety record for over two decades. Our aim was to assess its effectiveness

obtaining breath samples before and at timed intervals after ingesting a carbohydrate substrate and analyzing these samples for hydrogen (H2) content. Intestinal bacteria ferment the carbohydrate, producing the only source of bodily H2, which is expelled in the breath. The pattern and degree of expelled H2 may indicate the presence of particular gastrointestinal (GI) disorders. Irritable bowel syndrome (IBS) is a chronic GI disorder that is diagnosed only by symptoms but shares symptoms with other GI (...) conditions. In patients with IBS, the HBT is performed to identify GI conditions that may be responsible for symptoms and may be treatable, potentially providing symptom relief.

We evaluated rifaximin, a minimally absorbed antibiotic, as treatment for IBS.In two identically designed, phase 3, double-blind, placebo-controlled trials (TARGET 1 and TARGET 2), patients who had IBS without constipation were randomly assigned to either rifaximin at a dose of 550 mg (...) a response to treatment as assessed by daily self-ratings of global IBS symptoms and individual symptoms of bloating, abdominal pain, and stool consistency during the 4 weeks after treatment and during the entire 3 months of the study.Significantly more patients in the rifaximin group than in the placebo group had adequate relief of global IBS symptoms during the first 4 weeks after treatment (40.8% vs. 31.2%, P=0.01, in TARGET 1; 40.6% vs. 32.2%, P=0.03, in TARGET 2; 40.7% vs. 31.7%, P<0.001, in the two

We assessed gastrointestinal and colonic transit, stool characteristics, and associations of transit with fasting serum 7αC4 (surrogate of bile acid synthesis) and FGF19 (negative regulator of bile acid synthesis) levels. Candidate genetic polymorphisms involved in regulation of bile acid synthesis were analyzed in the 36 patients with IBS-C and 57 healthy volunteers to assess genetic influence on effects of CDC on transit.Overall colonic transit

A randomized, double-blind, placebo-controlled trial of St John`s wort for treating irritable bowel syndrome St John's wort (SJW) is known to effectively treat patients with mild-to-moderate depression. Antidepressants are frequently used to treat irritable bowel syndrome (IBS). To date, no study that examines the efficacy of SJW in IBS has been carried out. The aim of this study was to evaluate the efficacy of SJW in IBS after 12 weeks.In this randomized, double-blind, placebo-controlled trial (...) , 70 participants with an established diagnosis of IBS were randomized and assigned by concealed allocation to either SJW or placebo. Both treatment arms were balanced on symptom subtype. The primary end point was self-reported overall bowel symptom score (BSS) at 12 weeks. Secondary end points were individual BSS for diarrhea (D-BSS), constipation (C-BSS), pain or discomfort, and bloating; adequate relief (AR) of IBS on at least 50% of the last 4 weeks of therapy; and IBS quality-of-life score

Comprehensive self-management for irritable bowel syndrome: randomized trial of in-person vs. combined in-person and telephone sessions Psychological and behavioral therapies are being increasingly used for symptom management in patients with irritable bowel syndrome (IBS). The aims of this study were to compare two delivery modes for a comprehensive self-management (CSM) intervention, primarily by telephone vs. entirely in person, and to compare each with usual care (UC).Adults with IBS were (...) recruited through community advertisement. Subjects (N=188) were randomly assigned to three groups: one in which all nine weekly CSM sessions were delivered in person, one in which six of the nine sessions were conducted over telephone, and one in which subjects received UC. Primary outcome measures were a gastrointestinal (GI) symptom score based on six symptoms from a daily diary and disease-specific quality of life (QOL). These and other outcomes were assessed at baseline and at 3, 6, and 12 months
