Lactobacillus Rhamnosus in Prevention of Chemotherapy-related Diarrhoea




Unknown status
Chemotherapy may cause diarrhoea, which may be associated with treatment delay and infections. The purpose of the study is to investigate whether oral supplementation with lactobacilli will alleviate chemotherapy related diarrhoea. Patients diagnosed with advanced colorectal cancer and who will receive chemotherapy will be randomly assigned to receive either lactobacilli or placebo during chemotherapy. The study is a prospective, multicenter, randomized, double-blind, placebo-controlled study. The primary outcome measure is frequency of moderate/severe diarrhoea. The study will also address safety and tolerability of chemotherapy, response to chemotherapy, and serum growth factor levels.
