Résumé
In Europe, acute diarrhea, particularly caused by rotavirus are frequently the cause of epidemics in nurseries, schools, and even hospitals. Studies in many developing countries show that taking 10 to 20 mg per day of zinc for 10 to 14 days, during and after diarrhea, decreases the severity and reduces the number of episodes of diarrhea occurring within 2 to 3 months following the intake of zinc. However, the few studies conducted in developed countries do not confirm or deny its effectiveness in these countries, thereby limiting the global implementation of WHO recommendations for acute diarrhea. The ongoing study at the HEL (Children hospital - Lausanne) aims to promote this additional therapy in children under 5 years of age, perhaps allowing the helvetic application of the new WHO recommendations.
