Pharmacological properties

Enterol® 250 normalizes the intestinal microflora and has a pronounced etiopathogenetic antidiarrheal effect. during passage through the gastrointestinal tract saccharomyces boulardii cncm i-745 exert a biological protective effect relative to normal intestinal microflora.

The main mechanisms of action of Saccharomyces boulardii CNCM I-745:

  • direct antagonism (antimicrobial effect), which is due to the ability of Saccharomyces boulardii CNCM I-745 to inhibit the growth of pathogenic and opportunistic microorganisms and fungi that disrupt the intestinal biocenosis, namely: Clostridium difficile, Clostridium pneumoniae, Staphylococuscus aureusus Candureusidae Candususureusidae Candida pseudotropical, Candida albicans, Salmonella typhi, Salmonella enteritidis, Escherichia coli, Shigella dysenteriae, Shigella flexneri, Klebsiella, Proteus, Vibrio cholerae, as well as Enthamoeba hystolitica, Lambliae; Enterovirus, Rotavirus;
  • the antitoxic effect is due to the production of proteases that break down the toxin and act on the enterocyte receptor with which the toxin binds (especially with respect to cytotoxin A, Clostridium difficile);
  • antisecretory effect due to a decrease in cAMP in enterocytes, which leads to a decrease in the secretion of water and sodium in the intestinal lumen;
  • enhancing non-specific immune defense by increasing the production of IgA and secretory components of other immunoglobulins;
  • the enzymatic effect is due to an increase in the activity of small intestine disaccharidases (lactase, sucrase, maltase);
  • trophic effect on the mucous membrane of the small intestine is observed due to the release of spermine and spermidine.

The genetically determined resistance of Saccharomyces boulardii CNCM I-745 to antibiotics substantiates the possibility of their simultaneous use with antibiotics to protect the normal digestive tract biocenosis.

Pharmacokinetics After taking the drug, a high concentration of Saccharomyces boulardii CNCM I-745 in the large intestine is quickly achieved, which is maintained for 24 hours. Saccharomyces boulardii CNCM I-745 do not penetrate into the systemic circulation and mesenteric lymph nodes. After treatment, Saccharomyces boulardii CNCM I-745 is completely excreted in the feces for 3-5 days.

Indications

Prevention and treatment of colitis and diarrhea associated with taking antibiotics, intestinal dysbiosis, acute and chronic bacterial diarrhea, acute viral diarrhea, irritable bowel syndrome, travelers diarrhea, pseudomembranous colitis and diseases caused by clostridium difficile, diarrhea associated with long-term enteral nutrition.

Contraindications

Hypersensitivity to any component of the drug. patients with a central venous catheter.

Side effects

In individuals with individual intolerance to any component of the drug, hypersensitivity reactions are possible, including skin rash, itching, exanthema, urticaria, anaphylactic reactions, angioedema, anaphylactic shock, flatulence, epigastric discomfort. in very rare cases, there is a risk of fungemia in hospitalized patients with a central venous catheter.

special instructions

If the symptoms of the disease persist for more than 2 days of treatment at the usual dosage, a doctors consultation and dosage adjustment are necessary.

Enterol® 250 mg contains live culture.Therefore, the drug should not be mixed with very hot (50 ° C), cold drinks, alcohol-containing liquids, very hot or cold foods.

Treatment is not a substitute for rehydration when necessary. The volume of rehydration and the route of fluid administration (oral / iv) should be consistent with the severity of diarrhea, the age and general condition of the patient.

It is advisable not to open capsules or sachets near patients with central venous catheters installed to avoid colonization, especially associated with mechanical transfer during catheter manipulation. There is evidence that in patients with a central venous catheter who did not even receive S. boulardii CNCM I-745, in very rare cases of fungemia (penetration of yeast into the blood), it most often manifests as fever and a blood culture positive for saccharomycetes. The result of treatment in all these cases was satisfactory on the background of taking the antifungal drug and, if necessary, removing the catheter. The drug contains lactose, so patients with rare hereditary forms of galactose intolerance, lactase deficiency or glucose-galactose malabsorption syndrome should not use the drug.

For the dosage form, powder for oral use: due to the presence of fructose, this drug should not be used for fructose intolerance.

Use during pregnancy and lactation. No clinically significant malformative and fetotoxic effects have been identified at this time. However, monitoring pregnancy in women taking this drug is not sufficient to rule out any risk. Thus, as a precaution, it is advisable to avoid using this medication during pregnancy.

During lactation, the drug can be used under medical supervision.
