A study of 281 cases of infant diarrhea is reported. Of these, 261 were treated with drug preparations containing either neomycin, succinylsulfathiazole or a combination of neomycin and streptomycin on an outpatient, dispensary basis. The other 20 were hospitalized. Results with all three compounds were good, but especially so with the neomycin-streptomycin combination. With the latter compound, 88.1% of infants were cured within 48 hours and another 9.5% within a second 48-hour period.

A related study of diarrhea treatment in adults revealed that a placebo gave results equal to treatment with iodochlorhydroxyquin or with tablets containing neomycin sulfate 375 mg, kaolin 120 mg and pectin 5 mg.
