Active Ingredients: Ciprofloxacin
The bactericidal antibody titers against Shigella increased the proportions of B cells and plasma cells, as also higher lymphocyte proliferation responses in the peripheral circulation, during the early convalescent phase of shigellosis.
For all these reasons, it is clear that zinc supplementation should be given as an adjunct to antimicrobial AM treatment in bloody diarrhea.
The probabilistic cost-effectiveness analysis was performed using a Monte-Carlo simulation technique and the potential impacts of uncertainty in single parameters were explored with one-way sensitivity analyses. In this study, the ORS was found to be less cost-effective than was previously thought.
The use of zinc as an adjunct therapy, however, significantly improved the cost-effectiveness of the standard management of diarrhea for dysenteric as well as non-dysenteric illnesses.
A community-based controlled trial was conducted in Bangladesh where there were 30 service areas clusters, around the Matlab Treatment Center, each with about 200 children between the ages of 3 and 59 months, who were randomly allocated to intervention or comparison areas.
All children between the ages of 3 and 59 months were included in the study.
The significant reduction in AM use and related behavior in the intervention group demonstrated that the benefits of zinc supplementation extend well beyond reducing childhood morbidity and mortality.
Zinc supplementation for diarrhea with education programs, in addition to ORT, can reduce inappropriate AM use that leads to resistant pathogens. Zinc sulfate dispersible tablet is also available in the market, containing 20 mg of elemental zinc.
Pediatric zinc sulfate tablets are also available. Phytate, which is present in staple foods like cereals, corn, and rice, decreases zinc absorption from composite meals.
Experiments in vitro have shown that zinc is precipitated by phosphate and phytate at pH values close to those of the intestinal lumen.
Dairy products and brown bread decrease zinc absorption. Coffee also inhibits zinc absorption. Penicillamine and other chelators reduce absorption of Zn.
