Abstract

Background: Short- chain fructooligosaccharides (scFOS) have beneficial effects in subjects with minor digestive complaints, but the potential mechanisms involved have not been elucidated. The aim of the study was to evaluate changes in rectal sensitivity related to the clinical effects of scFOS in a selected group of patients with irritable bowel syndrome (IBS) and rectal hypersensitivity. Methods: In 79 IBS patients (defined by Rome III criteria) with rectal hypersensitivity (defined as discomfort threshold ≤ 44 g) a parallel, placebo- controlled, randomized, and double- blind study was performed to assess the effects of dietary supplementation (5 g d −1 ) with scFOS vs placebo for 4 weeks on rectal sensitivity (primary outcome: tolerance to increasing wall tension applied by a tensostat), clinical outcomes (IBS, anxiety/depression and quality of life scores) and composition of fecal microbiota. Key Results: Rectal discomfort threshold, and IBS and quality of life scores, signifi- cantly improved during treatment, but in a similar manner in both scFOS and placebo groups; a post- hoc analysis showed that the effect of scFOS on rectal sensitivity was more pronounced in constipation- predominant- IBS patients ( P =.051 vs placebo). Con- trary with placebo, scFOS significantly reduced anxiety scores and increased fecal Bifi- dobacteria ( P < .05 for both) without modifying other bacterial groups. Conclusions & Interfences: The effect of scFOS on anxiety may be related to modula- tion of the gut microbiota; demonstration of effects of scFOS on rectal sensitivity may require higher doses and may depend on the IBS subgroup.
