[A randomized study on a biological supplement effectiveness in patients with ''irritable bowel syndrome''].

Abstract

The irritable bowel syndrome is a functional chronic disorder with a likely multifactorial genesis widely diffused through Western population. The aim of this study was to evaluate the effectiveness of a biological supplement (FloRelax, Sanofi Winthrop) in this syndrome. This randomized multicentric study included 380 patients. The group treated with biological supplement for 6 weeks showed a reduction of the intensity, frequency and duration of the symptoms greater and/or quicker than the group randomized for the only diet.
