Study to Evaluate Safety and Efficacy of Rifamycin SV MMX in Treating Traveler's Diarrhea in Children Age 12 to 17 Years


About the study

This will be a double blind comparative study, performed in pediatric subjects (Age 12-17) traveling to developing regions with a known high incidence of traveler's diarrhea. The subjects will be suffering from acute diarrhea for at least 12 hours, without symptoms of systemic infection.

Who can take part

You may be eligible to participate in the study if you meet the following criteria:


  1. Diagnosis of acute bacterial diarrhea defined as at least 3 unformed stools within the 24 hours preceding randomization, with a duration of illness ≤72 h. The bacterial origin of diarrhea will be confirmed "a posteriori" by stool microbiology sampling at the time of screening.
  2. Presence of one or more signs or symptoms of enteric infection have to be present, including nausea, vomiting, abdominal cramps or pain, tenesmus, urgency
  3. History of recent travel from an industrialized country to a developing region with a known high incidence of travelers' diarrhea
  4. Male or female 12-17 years of age, providing an unformed pre-treatment stool
  5. Females of child-bearing potential must use an acceptable contraceptive method throughout the study treatment period
  6. The parent or legally acceptable representative guardian must provide informed consent for the subject. The Subject must also provide written informed assent by the parent or legal guardian at the time of assent/consent signing.
