Treatment of children with Helicobacter infection and malabsorption syndromes with probiotics: Comparison with conventional methods

Abstract

There is a large interest about Heliobacter pylori infection in childhood nowadays. The prevalence of infection is very high in developing countries and this is extremely correlated to the living conditions with consequences on the future health of children. Contamination mode is not well known but environment factors are involved. We used {sup 13}C Urea Breath Test to assess the prevalence rate in beninese asymptomatic children aged 7-11 years old (about 86%). We evaluated the influence of either conventional or probiotics therapy in eradicating Hp infection and some relationships with growth parameters. We concluded that conventional therapy or use of probiotics might improve infection status and probably influence growth factors in childhood. (author)
