Irritable bowel syndrome; update on pathophysiology and management.
- MedicineThe Turkish journal of gastroenterology : the official journal of Turkish Society of Gastroenterology
While there is reason for optimism in the management of irritable bowel syndrome with several promising new agents currently undergoing clinical trials, confirmation of the efficacy and safety of these agents in wider patient populations is awaited and a clearer understanding of the physiopathologic mechanisms underlying irritable Bowel Syndrome will likely be required before effective drug therapies can be found.

Selective decontamination of the digestive tract in surgical patients: a systematic review of the evidence.
- MedicineArchives of surgery
It is suggested that the use of selective decontamination of the digestive tract should be limited to those populations in whom rates of nosocomial infection are high and in whom infection contributes notably to adverse outcome.
Early enteral supply of lactobacillus and fiber versus selective bowel decontamination: a controlled trial in liver transplant recipients
Early enteral nutrition with fiber-containing solutions and living L plantarum 299 was well tolerated and decreases markedly the rate of postoperative infections both in comparison with inactivated L plantareum 299 and significantly with SBD and a standard enteralnutrition formula.

Randomized clinical trial of specific lactobacillus and fibre supplement to early enteral nutrition in patients with acute pancreatitis
- MedicineThe British journal of surgery
Whether lactic acid bacteria such as Lactobacillus plantarum 299 could prevent colonization of the gut by potential pathogens and thus reduce the endotoxaemia associated with acute pancreatitis is investigated.
