Abstract

A double-blind study was conducted to test the prophylactic effect of a non-absorbable broad-spectrum antimicrobial (oral colistin sulfate) against acute diarrhea in Apache children. Children 1 to 6 months old had over twice the morbidity from diarrhea if assigned to the group as compared to , while the toddler group (7–30 months) taking the antimicrobial had somewhat less diarrhea. Enterpathogenic were significantly more often isolated from the group (but only in well children). No special effect on the children's growth by the antimicrobial was discerned.
