    1) Significantly reduces the duration of diarrhea[1]

    The 73 hospitalized children (ages between 3 to 24 months) had on average greater than 8 stools per day, and the treatment was limited to 2 days. Lactéol Fort given in addition to oral rehydration reduced, with statistical significance, the duration of diarrhea, from both bacterial and viral origins.

    2) Normalizes the number of stools by the first day[1]

    The associated clinical symptoms disappeared in 3 patients out of 4 in an open trial carried out in 137 adults outside hospitals.
