The clinical observation of patients with acute enteric infections (AEI), treated with loading doses of Bifidumbacterin forte during the first 2 days of the disease, was carried out. The preparation was shown to produce a positive effect on the course of AEI: salmonellosis, alimentary toxicoinfections, acute, dysentery. The early decrease of the manifestations of intoxication, pain syndrome, diarrhea, as well as the acceleration of convalescence in comparison with standard treatment, were noted. The most essential dynamics was registered in salmonellosis patients. The analysis of clinical results allowed to recommend the use of loading doses of Bifidumbacterin forte, a probiotic with high colonization potential to normalize the microbiocenosis of the intestine in AEI.
