Nitazoxanide to Treat Exacerbations of Pediatric Inflammatory Bowel Disease (IBD)
Our practice had this abstract accepted for presentation at the 2008 North American Society for Pediatric Gastroenterology Hepatology and Nutrition (NASPGHAN-CDHNF) Clinical and Scientific Symposium in San Diego, CA. This study involved a retrospective chart review of patients treated with Nitazoxanide who had exacerbations of IBD. We found that Nitazoxanide was well tolerated and appears to be effective for the treatment of IBD exacerbations in pediatric patients. Further studies are warranted to confirm this observation.
