*  Evaluation of crofelemer in the treatment of diarrhea-predominant irritable bowel syndrome patients | RTI
Background: Crofelemer improves bowel function in several conditions characterized by states of prominent secretory diarrhea. Aim: This double-blind, randomized, placebo-controlled trial evaluated the effects of 3 dose levels of crofelemer in patients with diarrhea-predominant irritable bowel syndrome (D-IBS). Methods: Male and female patients were randomly assigned to receive crofelemer 125, 250 or 500 mg or placebo twice daily for 12 weeks. The primary efficacy measure was a responder for improvement in stool consistency.

*  Platelet serotonin transporter in patients with diarrhea-predominant irritable bowel syndrome both before and after treatment...
OBJECTIVES: Serotonin reuptake is mediated by a transporter protein (SERT), and its dysfunctions can alter serotonergic transmission. The present study examines the binding profile of platelet SERT in healthy volunteers as well as in patients with diarrhea-predominant irritable bowel syndrome (D-IBS), both before and after treatment with the 5-HT3 receptor antagonist alosetron. METHODS: Binding of [³H]paroxetine to SERT was assayed in platelet membranes collected from D-IBS patients (12 women, age 21-73 yr) and healthy volunteers (12 women, age 24-68 yr). Both maximal binding capacity (Bmax) and dissociation constant (Kd) were estimated. In D-IBS patients, binding parameters and symptom severity score were evaluated at baseline and after treatment with alosetron (1 mg b.i.d. for 8 wk). RESULTS: At baseline, Bmax and Kd values of [³H]paroxetine binding were respectively lower and higher in D-IBS patients than in healthy volunteers (Bmax: 518.7 ± 155.9 vs ...

*  Does Welchol (Colesevelam Hydrochloride) Improve Colonic Transit in Diarrhea-predominant Irritable Bowel Syndrome (D-IBS)? -...
Background:. Irritable bowel syndrome (IBS) affects about 15% of the U.S. population, about 5% having predominant diarrhea; current treatment is suboptimal as it may not be tolerated, lead to side effects or insufficient benefit. Bile acid malabsorption (BAM) is recognized as a cause of chronic diarrhea and has been investigated as a mechanism for the phenotype of diarrhea predominant IBS (D-IBS). Increased exposure of the colon to bile acids which may result from accelerated small bowel transit or abnormal function of the apical sodium bile acid transporter (ASBT) has been postulated to cause functional diarrhea or symptoms of D-IBS by a number of mechanisms, such as increase colonic secretion, and mucosal permeability. Recent preliminary data suggest that doses of chenodeoxycholate (CDC) that are approved for the dissolution of gall stones are associated with accelerated colonic emptying and looser stool consistency.. Hypothesis:. The bile ...

*  Food for thought and health.: Treating Irritable Bowel Syndrome in a Natural Way
Irritable bowel syndrome (IBS) is a functional gastrointestinal disorder. It means that the bowels of an IBS patient do not function properly and it causes many IBS symptoms. The most common symptoms of irritable bowel syndrome are lower abdominal pain, changes in intestinal habits, abdominal irritation relieved with defecation, bloating resultong from changes in intestinal habits. In point of fact, there are several general patterns of irritable bowel syndrome that have their own specific symptoms. They are diarrhea-predominant (IBS-D), constipation-predominant (IBS-C), post-infectious IBS (IBS-PI), and IBS with alternating stool pattern (IBS-A). It is notable that all patterns can be accompanied by fever, vomiting, headache, excessive wind, etc. Also general malaise and lethargy, anxiety, stress, emotional disorders, back pain can also ...

Because unexplained 'functional symptoms' are a major cause of referral to gastroenterologists, the efficiency of the medical history to lead to a positive diagnosis of irritable bowel syndrome, without resorting to the use of expensive tests, remains a key question. Whilst the six criteria of Manning et al are widely used, data on their validity in discriminating irritable bowel syndrome from healthy controls, irritable bowel syndrome from non-ulcer dyspepsia and especially among irritable bowel syndrome subgroups, are not available. To evaluate this, we studied 361 outpatients who completed a bowel disease questionnaire, which objectively measured Manning's (and other) criteria. The group included 82 patients with irritable bowel syndrome, ...

The prevalence of LM has substantial geographical variation and is related to ethnicity. The prevalence of LM detected in IBS-D and controls in our study confirmed the suspected high prevalence of LM in southern China. There was no significant difference in LM between IBS-D patients and healthy volunteers. LM seemed not to predispose individuals to IBS-D. Our finding was similar to that reported by Gupta et al. [4]. It reported that the prevalence of LM was 72% in IBS patients and 60% in healthy subjects. However, another study [10] in Norway showed a much lower prevalence of 4.1 and 3.8% in IBS patients and healthy subjects, respectively. It suggests that LM is widely variable throughout the world.. The relationship between LI and IBS remains unclear. Our study found that the prevalence of LI was higher in patients with IBS-D than in healthy subjects. It is consistent with findings that reported in other studies [16, 17]. There is no significant difference for symptoms about LI between IBS ...

Irritable Bowel Syndrome (IBS) is the most commonly identified functional gastrointestinal disorder, affecting 10-20% of the population in the Western world, seen predominantly in females and with a negative impact on quality of life, characterized by recurrent and often disabling abdominal pain associated with altered frequency or appearance or passage of the stool.. IBS aetiology is unknown and its treatment remains largely empirical and directed to the relief of symptoms. One possible target for IBS treatment has been identified in drugs that modulate the action of Cholecystokinin (CCK), a peptide gut hormone implicated in the regulation of motor and sensory functions at various levels of the gastrointestinal tract.. The biological actions of CCK in the gastrointestinal tract are mediated by CCK1-receptors.. Dexloxiglumide is an oral potent and selective antagonist of CCK1-receptors. The mechanism by which dexloxiglumide might be beneficial in IBS is its ...

*  Diarrhoea-predominant irritable bowel syndrome distinguishable by 16S rRNA gene phylotype quantification
AIM: To study whether selected bacterial 16S ribosomal RNA (rRNA) gene phylotypes are capable of distinguishing irritable bowel syndrome (IBS). METHODS: The faecal microbiota of twenty volunteers with IBS, subdivided into eight diarrhoea-predominant (IBS-D), eight constipation-predominant (IBS-C) and four mixed symptom-subtype (IBS-M) IBS patients, and fifteen control subjects, were analysed at three time-points with a set of fourteen quantitative real-time polymerase chain reaction assays. All assays targeted 16S rRNA gene phylotypes putatively associated with IBS, based on 16S rRNA gene library sequence analysis. The target phylotypes were affiliated with Actinobacteria, Bacteroidetes and Firmicutes. Eight of the target phylotypes had less than 95% similarity to cultured bacterial species according to their 16S rRNA gene sequence. The data analyses were made with repeated-measures ANCOVA-type modelling of the data and principle component analysis (PCA) ...
