Daily Intake of 'Yakult' Is Efficacious in Reducing Incidence of Acute Diarrhea in Young Children
Date:8/20/2010

ble-blind randomized controlled field trial involving 3,585 children aged between 1 and 5 years was carried out in Kolkata, India. The participating children were given either "Yakult" or a placebo drink daily for 12 weeks to observe the incidence of acute diarrhea and pathogenic microbes in the stool.

The results showed that the proportion of children suffering from diarrhea was significantly lower in the "Yakult" group (608 out of 1,802) compared to the placebo group (674 out of 1,783). Moreover, the incidence of diarrhea was lower in the "Yakult" group (0.88/child/year) compared to the placebo group (1.029/child/year) and the difference was statistically significant (p less than 0.01). The analysis of pathogenic bacterial, viral and parasitic agents in the children with diarrhea resulted in the lower detection rate of Aeromonas spp and Cryptosporidium spp in the Yakult group compared to the placebo group.

*The placebo drink did not contain Lactobacillus casei strain Shirota. The taste and color of both the placebo drink and "Yakult" were similar. By comparing the effects of intake of each drink, the efficacy of "Yakult" can be scientifically measured.Contact:  Isamu Sasaoka  PR Department  YAKULT HONSHA CO., LTD.  Phone: +81-3-3574-8920 (Japanese and English Only)  E-mail: strain-shirota@yakult.co.jp (Japanese and English Only)  URL: http://www.yakult.co.jp/english/index.html  Michael Eric D.
