BACKGROUND & AIMS Oral rehydration therapy is the only treatment recommended by the World Health Organization in acute diarrhea in children. Antisecretory drugs available could not be used because of their side effects, except for racecadotril, which is efficient in acute diarrhea in adults. METHODS The efficacy and tolerability of racecadotril (1.5 mg/kg administered orally 3 times daily) as adjuvant therapy to oral rehydration were compared with those of placebo in 172 infants aged 3 months… Expand

RACECADOTRIL IN THE TREATMENT OF ACUTE DIARRHEA IN CHILDREN: A META-ANALYSIS
TLDR
There is evidence that the drug racecadotril holds promise in terms of reducing stool output, number of bowel movements and duration of diarrhea, however, well-designed randomized control trails with an ad equate sample size and absence of any competitive interest are needed before any conclusion regarding the role of the drug in diarrhea. Expand
Use of racecadotril as outpatient treatment for acute gastroenteritis: a prospective, randomized, parallel study.
TLDR
The use of racecadotril did not improve the symptoms of diarrhea compared with standard rehydration therapy and the groups were comparable clinically and epidemiologically at enrollment. Expand

TLDR
Based on a comprehensive review of the existing evidence, racecadotril is more efficacious than other treatments except for loperamide and has a tolerability similar to placebo and better than Loperamide. Expand

Racecadotril in the treatment of acute watery diarrhea in children.
TLDR
In young boys with acute watery diarrhea, racecadotril is an effective and safe treatment and the intake of oral rehydration solution was significantly lower in the racec Cadotril group than in the placebo group (P<0.001). Expand
A controlled trial of bismuth subsalicylate in infants with acute watery diarrheal disease.
TLDR
Treatment with bismuth subsalicylate decreases the duration of diarrhea and is a safe and effective adjunct to oral rehydration therapy for infants and young children with acute watery diarrhea. Expand
Effect of loperamide on stool output and duration of acute infectious diarrhea in infants.
TLDR
The study confirmed the efficacy of loperamide in reducing the duration and severity of diarrhea but raised doubts regarding its safety in the treatment of young infants. Expand
Smectite in Acute Diarrhea in Children: A Double‐Blind Placebo‐Controlled Clinical Trial
TLDR
A beneficial effect of DS is suggested in shortening the duration of diarrhea and reducing the frequency of liquid stools in children rehydrated with ORS. Expand
Oral rehydration, rapid feeding, and cholestyramine for treatment of acute diarrhea.
TLDR
Treatment of acute diarrhea by rehydration with ORS-WHO and rapid introduction of full feedings is effective and safe, and this combination forms a therapy of choice for typical hospitalized cases of acute infantile diarrhea in Finland. Expand
Loperamide in acute childhood diarrhoea: a double blind controlled trial.
TLDR
The loperamide group did not show any statistically significant differences as compared to the controls with regard to the diarrheal stool output, the amount of reHydration fluid the time required for initial rehydration as well as the weight gain after rehydrations, but after the initial high output diarrhea phase was over loperamia improved the consistency of stool probably through its antimotility effect.

Effects of acetorphan, an enkephalinase inhibitor, on experimental and acute diarrhoea.
TLDR
The efficacy and tolerance of acetorphan suggest that enkephalinase inhibition may represent a novel therapeutic approach for the symptomatic management of acute secretory diarrhoea without impairing intestinal transit. Expand
Comparison of racecadotril and loperamide in children with acute diarrhoea
TLDR
To compare the efficacy, tolerability, and safety of racecadotril and loperamide in children aged 2 to 10 years who were suffering from acute diarrhoea, a multicentre, parallel‐group, double‐blind, double-placebo study was carried out. Expand
DIARRHŒAL MORTALITY IN TWO BANGLADESHI VILLAGES WITH AND WITHOUT COMMUNITY-BASED ORAL REHYDRATION THERAPY
TLDR
The observation indicated that although it may not be possible to reduce diarrhoeal attack-rates, easy availability of rehydration solution and its early use after village-based training may save many lives, particularly those of children. Expand
Saccharomyces boulardii'. A Review of an Innovative Biotherapeutic Agent
TLDR
Evidence from human volunteers and patients indicate a profile which is effective in the therapy of diarrhoea and is remarkably safe for oral ingestion, and pharmacokinetic data demonstrate that S. boulardii reaches a steady-state concentration quickly and maintains a high stable level as long as the yeast is taken daily.
