Cholestyramine treatment of new born's infectious diarrhea has been shown to be effective. The study of in vitro binding of bacterial toxins from Vibrio Cholerae and from three strains of Escherichia coli suggest an ionic adsorption of the four toxins to this anion-exchange resin. This immediate binding is effective at the pH of intestinal fluid, therefore the protection of the enterocytes from the biological action of the toxins result of the toxins sequestering effect of the Cholestyramine.
