Inexpensive Compound Could Treat Severe Diarrhea
Date:6/17/2008

ston who was not involved in the study.

"An inexpensive drug that could block the intestinal secretory pathway, with minimal side effects, would be a 'magic bullet' that would not only save millions of lives in many parts of the developing world, but would also save the billions of dollars that are lost annually because of diarrhea throughout the world. It would truly be a treatment of diarrhea rather than a treatment of the consequences of diarrhea," Schultz said in a prepared statement.

Currently, there is no effective way to directly treat secretory diarrhea. Treatment is aimed at minimizing fluid loss through intravenous or oral rehydration.
