The aim of this study was to determine the effect of the supplementation of an organic acid (citric acid), antibiotic growth promoter (avilamycin), and their combination for a period of 35 d on the growth, feed efficiency, carcass yield, tibia ash, and immune status of broilers. One hundred sixty 1-d-old broiler chicks (Hubbard Classic) were randomly(More)
Injury to the human body alters normal physiology across several systems and these alterations are proportional to the extent of the injury. Physiological response to minimally invasive surgery appears to be different than those of traditional open surgery. Acute phase protein response appears to be one example. The important cytokines that are known as(More)
BACKGROUND & AIMS Because of the beneficial intestinal effects of dietary fibers, we have evaluated the therapeutic effects of green banana or pectin in children with persistent diarrhea. METHODS In a double-blind trial, 62 boys, age 5-12 months, were randomly given a rice-based diet containing either 250 g/L of cooked green banana (n = 22) or 4 g/kg(More)
The efficacy in acute childhood diarrhoea of oral rehydration therapy (ORT) based on staple foods (maize, millet, wheat, sorghum, rice, or potato) was compared with that of standard ORT based on glucose. 266 children aged 1-5 years, with a history of acute diarrhoea for 48 h or less, moderate to severe dehydration, and no complications, were assigned to(More)
To evaluate the impact of food on the efficacy of oral rehydration solution (ORS), a randomised, controlled clinical trial was conducted in 182 adults with cholera. After initial rehydration with an intravenous polyelectrolyte solution for four hours, the patients were randomised to receive one of four rehydration therapies: glucose based ORS and no food(More)
The effect of zinc supplementation on intestinal permeability changes and protein loss was studied in 32 children aged between 1 and 12 years during bouts of acute shigellosis and after recovery. An intestinal permeability test and then a 48 hour balance study were performed on all patients. They were then blindly assigned to receive vitamin B syrup either(More)
Anal fissure is a common disorder which may cause symptoms at any age. Internal anal sphincterotomy is the gold standard surgical treatment which lowers the resting anal pressure and effectively heals the majority of fissures. However the post operative period may be marked by surgical risks, complications and late incidence of incontinence that is some(More)

Whole gut transit time (TT) was measured in 68 children aged up to 5 years (29 cholera, 17 rotavirus, 13 enterotoxigenic Escherichia coli, and 9 Shigella) during acute stages of diarrhoea and 2 weeks after recovery. Absorption of calories, fat, protein, and carbohydrates contained in a normal Bangladeshi diet was studied for 72 h after the first appearance(More)
A diet based on rice powder, soya-bean oil, glucose, egg-white and salts was given to twenty-six patients of different nutritional status aged 4-18 months with persistent diarrhoea and twenty-five age-matched controls without diarrhoea. Clinical response was monitored during 1 week of dietary treatment and absorption of macronutrients was estimated during a(More)
