The probiotic Escherichia coli strain Nissle 1917 (ECN) for successful maintenance of remission of ulcerative colitis in children and adolescents: an opened pilot study.


Considering that for about 20% of patients with ulcerative colitis are children or adolescents it is necessary to conduct treatment taking into account the individual needs of children. E. coli Nissle 1917 (EcN) — is a probiotic with the evidence base, which is an alternative to mesalazine (5-ASA) for the maintenance of remission of UC in adults and also as perspective mean of this type of therapy. The present open pilot study was conducted with the aim to examine the benefits of EcN for maintenance therapy in young patients with UC. To 34 patients in the age from 11 to 18 years with UC in remission was ordered either EcN (2 capsules once a day, n = 24) or 5-ASA (on average 1.5 g / day, n = 10); patients were under observation during the year. As a result, the recurrence rate was 25% (6/24) in the EcN group and 30% (3/10) in the 5-ASA group. Data on the overall health and development has been favorable without the reports about serious side effects. Therefore, maintenance therapy during the UC with the probiotic EcN application is also effective in younger patients.

The role and value of endocervical microflora of pregnant women in development of intestinal microbiocenosis of infants with clinical signs of intrauterine infection.


Objectives: to study the species composition and condition of the vaginal microbiocenosis in pregnant women of the risk group; to evaluate the effect of disbiotic disorders of vaginal microbiocenosis in pregnant women on the processes of adaptation, microbial colonization and formation of intestinal microbiocenosis in infants with clinical signs of intrauterine infection (IUI).

Patients and methods. The study included 300 infants with clinical signs of IUI and their mother. With the use of standard bacteriological methods the vaginal swabs, amniotic fluid, placenta, fetal membranes, cord and two loci of newborns (nose and throat) are examined. It is used probiotic Saccharomyces boulardіi (Enterol 250) with the aim of correction of identified disorders of intestinal biocenosis in children.

Results. Bacteriological tests of vaginal swabs of pregnant women and gastric aspirates of their infants had shown the growth of pathogenic microflora. In most of cases were verified polymicrobial associations of gram-positive cocci as Staphylocoscus epidemidis and Staphulococsus aureus in combination with Candida and opportunistic Escherichia coli.

Conclusions. In the discharges form maternal passages and infant gastric aspirate microflora was identical to the mother that is indicating on correlation interaction between rising way of IUI in infants and vaginal disbiotic disorders in pregnant women. Inclusion of probiotic Saccharomyces boulardіi (Enterol 250) to the complex medical treatment of infants with clinical signs of IUI contributed to significant (p <0.05) elimination of pathogenic microflora and the formation of the intestinal microbiota in the vast majority of infants (81.7%) with Lactobacillus spp. and Bifidobacterium spp. colonies domination

Hepatitis B vaccine prevention: expert view on international strategy of protection.


Summary. Over the last years, viral hepatitis is not only medical but also social and economic problem. Modern control methods with hepatitis B virus (HBV) define a comprehensive approach focused on three elements of epidemic process – the source of the virus, the gap modes of transmission of the virus and the protection of sensitive population. The most effective and long-term way of protection against HBV is immune prophylaxis. Universal mass vaccination of infants against HBV protects them by the way of preventing of life-threatening consequences of infection in future such as chronization of disease and the probability of cirrhosis progression and hepatocellular carcinoma. The introduction of flexible vaccination regimen to the National Immunization Schedule recommended by WHO, by two or three doses of vaccine against HBV in the content of combined hexavalent vaccines will increase the level of vaccination coverage against HBV in Ukraine at the very least to the level of vaccination coverage with three doses of DTP at the same time reducing the number of injections for children and visits to the clinic that will promote improvement and timeliness of vaccination.

Key words: viral hepatitis B, prevention, vaccination, comprehensive hexavalent combination vaccine.

The effectiveness of levocetirizine in allergic rhinitis in children.


Objective: To optimize the treatment of allergic rhinitis (AR) in children.

Patients and methods. In the study took part children in the age of 6–12 years who had moderate manifestations of intermittent moderate or persistent mild AR during the last 12 months. Symptoms of disease were assessed by parents / patients by 4-point scale: «0» — no symptoms, «1» — a slight symptom, «2» — moderate symptoms, «3» — strongly pronounced symptom and entered in the special journal; the overall disease activity was determined as the sum of total points for a week. Children from the main group had received levocetirizine (L-zet) syrup at a dose of 10 mg daily during four weeks. Children of the control group had received cromolyn sodium four times per day in the form of nasal spray, and if necessary, in the form of eye drops.

Results. In the end of the first week of treatment with levocetirizine total nasal symptom severity decreased by more than half, while with the use of sodium cromoglycate — on 30%, the difference between the two groups was 18% (p <0.05). Several smaller differences were observed in the second week, but the severity of ocular symptoms did not have a difference that is conceptually consist with published data. Small differences between the groups at the second week of treatment may also be associated with slower development of sodium cromoglycate action.

Conclusions. Levocetirizine (L-zet) oral form increases the effectiveness of nasal form of sodium cromoglycate during the treatment of persistent mild or intermittent moderate AR in children. High efficiency, good safety profile and convenient mode of reception allow recommending levocetirizine in the treatment schemes of these forms of AR in children.
