Acute otitis media (AOM) affects the middle ear and is clinically characterized by earache as the main symptom. Otitis media may be clinically suspected, but the otoscopy usually confirms the diagnosis. Antibiotic therapy is used in clinical practice, primarily in patients with severe symptoms. However, antibiotics often induce intestinal and respiratory dysbiosis associated with some clinical problems. Dysbiosis impairs the immune system and slows down the resolution of inflammatory events consequent to the infection. The current clinical experience was conducted in patients with AOM and taking antibiotics. All patients were treated with antibiotics and Abincol@ for two weeks, then a subgroup (ratio 1:1) took a one-month course of Abincol Immuno® (Group A), the remaining patients served as control (Group B).

Abstract

Acute otitis media (AOM) affects the middle ear and is clinically characterized by earache as the main symptom. Otitis media may be clinically suspected, but the otoscopy usually confirms the diagnosis. Antibiotic therapy is used in clinical practice, primarily in patients with severe symptoms. However, antibiotics often induce intestinal and respiratory dysbiosis associated with some clinical problems. Dysbiosis impairs the immune system and slows down the resolution of inflammatory events consequent to the infection. The current clinical experience was conducted in patients with AOM and taking antibiotics. All patients were treated with antibiotics and Abincol@ for two weeks, then a subgroup (ratio 1:1) took a one-month course of Abincol Immuno® (Group A), the remaining patients served as control (Group B).
