Repurposing an Old Drug for a New Epidemic: Ursodeoxycholic Acid to Prevent Recurrent Clostridioides difficile Infection.
Additional Document Info
Recurrent Clostridioides difficile infection (rCDI) may be mediated in part by secondary bile acids. Here we report salvage therapy with ursodeoxycholic acid (UDCA) to prevent rCDI in 16 high-risk patients. Patients on UDCA had a low observed recurrence rate (12.5%). Controlled trials are needed to confirm these observations.
