At the seminar a report with the results of a clinical study on Lactofor® “Current approaches to the management of patients with constipation syndrome” was presented. Skrypnik Igor Nikolaevich (MD, Professor, Vice-Rector for scientific and pedagogical work and postgraduate education, Head of the Department of Internal Medicine No.1 of the University, UMSA, Honored Worker of Science and Technology of Ukraine, President of the Ukrainian Gastroenterological Association) was a speaker.

The report has shown modern approaches to the diagnosis and correction of obstipation syndrome (constipation) in patients with functional disorders of the gastrointestinal tract (according to the latest Roman criteria IV). In particular, Igor Nikolayevich emphasized on the fact that constipation is a multifaceted problem that includes not only a reduced frequency of defecation, but a complex of different disorders, such as:

  • - intestinal microbiocenosis disorder;
  • - body intoxication;
  • - slow absorption and reduced vitamins synthesis;
  • - low local and general immunity.

Therefore, the purpose of modern constipation treatment is the normalization of defecation in humans in accordance with the physiological rhythm, as well as the elimination of manifestations that accompany constipation and worse the quality of life of patients.

Skrypnik Igor Nikolaevich emphasized on the new original Lactofor® combination, which has 3 principal advantages among other constipation remedies:

  1. Lactofor® has a unique composition containing 5 ingredients (lactitol, simethicone, Lactobacillus acidophilus, folic acid and vitamin B12). Thanks to such combination Lactofor® solves the problem of constipation in patients with functional disorders of the gastrointestinal tract.
  2. Lactofor® is a unique combination in Ukraine that includes lactitol – a new representative of osmotic laxatives;
  3. Lactofor® is manufactured in user-friendly sachets.

Also, Skrypnik Igor Nikolayevich has shown the results of his own clinical research on Lactofor, carried out at the Department of Internal Medicine No.1 of the VSUZU "UMSA", headed by Skrypnyk Igor Nikolaevich. This research has proved the high efficacy of Lactofor®, in particular, improved stool, reduction of negative symptoms such as flatulence and pain, as well as improved the quality of life. In addition, Lactofor® was well tolerated by patients with chronic constipation.

According to the participants of the seminar, the report of Skrypnik Igor Nikolaevich was very informative, useful and interesting!
