The efficacy of probiotics on persistent diarrhea remains uncertain. The purpose of this study was to evaluate the effect of Lactobacillus sp and Saccharomyces boulardii on persistent diarrhea in children. In a double-blind trial eighty-nine children, aged 6-24 months were randomly distributed to receive pasteurized cow milk containing 2 viable lyophilized strains Lactobacillus casei and Lactobacillus acidophillus strains CERELA, (10(10)-10(12) colony-forming units per g) (n = 30), or… Expand
Randomized Trial of Probiotics and Calcium on Diarrhea and Respiratory Tract Infections in Indonesian Children
TLDR
Irrespective of the definition used, reuteri significantly reduced diarrhea incidence in children with lower nutritional status (below-median height-and-weight-for-age z score). Expand
Probiotics, calcium and acute diarrhea : a randomized trial in Indonesian children
TLDR
Irrespective of the definition used, reuteri may prevent diarrhea especially in children with lower nutritional status, reduce total duration of diarrheal episodes, and modestly improve growth over 6 months, but does not affect diarrhea severity. Expand
Effect of Lactobacillus rhamnosus GG in Persistent Diarrhea in Indian Children: A Randomized Controlled Trial
TLDR
LGG (dose of 60 million cells) could decrease the frequency and duration of diarrhea and vomiting and reduced hospital stay in patients of PD. Expand
Strain-Specific Probiotic Properties of Bifidobacteria and Lactobacilli for the Prevention of Diarrhea Caused by Rotavirus in a Preclinical Model
TLDR
The present study highlights the strain-specific effects of probiotics and identifies promising probiotics for use in ameliorating and preventing RV-induced diarrhea in children, for example by including them in infant formulas. Expand
Common Organisms and Probiotics: Saccharomyces boulardii
TLDR
Saccharomyces boulardii was well tolerated by study participants, regardless of age, or disease condition, and the most robust evidence-based efficacy is for the treatment of acute pediatric diarrhea, for the prevention of antibiotic-associated diarrhea, and for the treating of Helicobacter pylori infections. Expand
The role of probiotics in the prevention and treatment of childhood infectious diarrhea
TLDR
The available evidence suggests that probiotics are safe when used in healthy children and effective in reducing the duration of acute infectious diarrhea. Expand
The role of probiotics in the prevention and treatment of childhood infectious diarrhea
TLDR

Probiotic Lactobacillus casei: Effective for Managing Childhood Diarrhea by Altering Gut Microbiota and Attenuating Fecal Inflammatory Markers
Background: Acute diarrhea is a major cause of childhood morbidity and an economic burden for families. The aim of this study is to explore the effect of probiotics on clinical symptoms, intestinalExpand
Saccharomyces boulardii in childhood
TLDR
There is evidence that S. boulardii is beneficial for the treatment of acute gastroenteritis and the prevention of antibiotic-associated diarrhea and more data are needed in other indications such as traveller’s diarrhea, Helicobacter pylori eradication, and inflammatory bowel disease. Expand
Efficacy and Safety of Saccharomyces boulardii for Acute Diarrhea
TLDR
This review and meta-analysis show that S. boulardii is safe and has clear beneficial effects in children who have acute diarrhea, however, additional studies using head-to-head comparisons are needed to define the best dosage. Expand

A human Lactobacillus strain (Lactobacillus casei sp strain GG) promotes recovery from acute diarrhea in children.
TLDR
The result indicates that early nutritional repletion after rehydration causes no mucosal disruption and is beneficial for recovery from diarrhea, and it is further suggested that Lactobacillus GG in the form of fermented milk or freeze-dried powder is effective in shortening the course of acute diarrhea. Expand
Effect of Lactobacillus strains (L. casei and L. Acidophillus Strains cerela) on bacterial overgrowth-related chronic diarrhea.
TLDR
Evidence that LC are effective for treatment of bacterial overgrowth--related chronic diarrhea is provided, and it is suggested that probiotics must be used with continuity. Expand
Survival of Lactobacillus species (strain GG) in human gastrointestinal tract.
TLDR
It is demonstrated that Lactobacillus GG can survive and temporarily colonize the human gastrointestinal tract and can affect the metabolic activity of the resident microflora. Expand
Clinical studies in persistent diarrhea: dietary management with green banana or pectin in Bangladeshi children.
TLDR
Green banana and pectin are useful in the dietary management of persistent diarrhea in hospitalized children and may also be useful to treat children at home. Expand
Survival ofLactobacillus species (strain GG) in human gastrointestinal tract
TLDR
It is demonstrated that lactobacillus GG can survive and temporarily colonize the human gastrointestinal tract and can affect the metabolic activity of the resident microflora. Expand
[Crystalline lactulose and oral preparations of micro-organisms for the treatment of chronic aspecific diarrhea in children. A controlled clinical study].
TLDR
The re-establishment of a balanced intestinal ecosystem remains the choice treatment for subjects affected by aspecific chronic diarrhea and it is possible to conclude that both treatments proved efficacious. Expand
Effect of Feeding Yogurt Versus Milk in Children with Persistent Diarrhea
TLDR
Preliminary results strongly suggest a clinical advantage of feeding yogurt rather than milk in children with persistent diarrhea. Expand
Lactobacillus therapy for acute infectious diarrhea in children: a meta-analysis.
TLDR
It is suggested that Lactobacillus is safe and effective as a treatment for children with acute infectious diarrhea and a preplanned subanalysis suggests a dose-effect relationship. Expand
Stimulation of secretory IgA and secretory component of immunoglobulins in small intestine of rats treated withSaccharomyces boulardii
TLDR
One of the mechanisms by which S. b.b. exerts its immunoprotective effect in the gastrointestinal tract is a stimulation of the intestinal secretion of s-IgA and of the secretory component of immunoglobulins, which is suggested to be due to an increase in enterocyte turnover rate. Expand
Use of nonhuman milks in the dietary management of young children with acute diarrhea: a meta-analysis of clinical trials.
TLDR
The results suggest that children with mild or no dehydration and those who are managed according to appropriate treatment protocols, such as that promoted by the World Health Organization, can be treated as successfully with lactose-containing diets as with lactOSE-free ones. Expand
