Background

It can take a very long time to recover from diarrhoea–as much as 30 days–both in terms of re-establishing your gut microbiome and regaining your energy from feeling weak and tired. Products that address the lingering symptoms of diarrhoea could have a significant impact on the quality of life of sufferers. 
At Johnson & Johnson Consumer Health, we are continually seeking novel and/or improved therapies to help patients recover from diarrhoea.
