Abstract :

Microbiota is significantly impaired in patients with various gut diseases. This causes additional dysfunctions with a range of complaints. Restore eubiosis is one of the main tasks of a gastroenterologist. Evaluation of clinical and laboratory efficacy of probiotic â�?�?Biogarant-Plantaferminâ�? in comparison with widely used probiotic â�?�?Bifidumbacterinâ�? in patients with clinically manifested gut dysbiosis was performed. The study involved three groups of patients (20 each) with chronic intestinal diseases. All of them received conventional basic therapy. The first group of patients additionally received probiotic â�?�?Biogarant-Plantaferminâ�? (L. fermentum, L. plantarum) - 50 ml once a day and the second group of patients-â�?�?Bifidumbacterinâ�? (B. bifidum)-5 doses twice a day. The duration of treatment was 3 weeks. Clinical efficacy was evaluated on terms of disappearance of dyspepsia and microbiological signs of disease. It was demonstrated that the percentage of patients recovered from dysbiosis taking â�?�?Biogarant-Plantaferminâ�? amounted to 92%; percentage of patients treated with â�?�?Bifidumbacterinâ�?-81% and in the control group received no probiotic treatment recovered 72%. A positive effect of the drug â�?�?Biogarant-Plantaferminâ�? towards the microbial landscape of the intestine was registered. â�?�?Biogarant- Plantaferminâ�? well tolerated both the clinical picture and the laboratory tests indicated no side effects. â�?�?Biogarant-Plantaferminâ�? can be recommended for therapeutic and prophylactic use in patients with inflammatory intestinal diseases complicated by gut dysbiosis.
