Self-Treatment of Uncomplicated Diarrhoea and of Dysentery in Travelers: A Controlled Study
Many agents are propagated for self-treatment of travelers’ diarrhoea [1-3]. In various previous studies never more than two agents have been compared at one time, and this was usually done only in Mexico. It is, therefore, unknown which agent offers the fastest cure, causes the least side effects, and is effective in all developing countries.
