CENTRAL AND MUCOSAL IMMUNITIES ARE MODIFIED BY NON ADSORBABLE ANTIBIOTIC TREATMENT IN UNCOMPLICATED DIVERTICULAR DISEASE

Dr. F. Pandolfi

Abstract


We review our experience on Rifaximin in uncomplicated diverticular disease. Our data show that a 2 week treatment induces modifications in the immune system: local mucosal lymphocytes with TLR-4 were increased. In the peripheral blood CD103 cells, which increased before treatment, returned to normal values after Rifaximin.
