Current Primary Outcome Measures  ICMJE
 (submitted: July 22, 2019)
Stool consistency [ Time Frame: 4 weeks ]
Assessed by the parents in a continuous daily bowel diary over the study period using the Amsterdam Infant Stool Scale (AISS) comprised of a 4-point scale (A: watery, B: soft, C: formed, D: hard)
Original Primary Outcome Measures  ICMJE
 (submitted: May 6, 2019)
Stool consistency [ Time Frame: 4 weeks ]
The primary variable is the stool consistency during the last two weeks of product consumption.Tables including descriptive statistics (N, arithmetic mean, standard deviation, minimum, median, maximum), p-values for the treatment effect and 95% confidence for the treatment difference will be prepared.

Current Secondary Outcome Measures  ICMJE
 (submitted: July 22, 2019)
  • Stool frequency [ Time Frame: 4 weeks ]
    Assessed by daily parental reporting.
  • Stool amount and stool colour [ Time Frame: 4 weeks ]
    Assessed by the parents in a continuous daily bowel diary over the study period using the Amsterdam Infant Stool Scale (AISS). Stool amount will be assessed on a 4-point scale (1: smear, 2: up to 25%, 3: 25.50%, 4: >50%, relative to diaper surface). Stool colour will be assessed on a 6-point scale (I: yellow, II: orange, III: green, IV: brown, V: meconium, VI: clay-coloured)
  • Treatment success [ Time Frame: 4 weeks ]
    ROME IV criteria still met at the end of the intervention.
  • Faecal microbiota [ Time Frame: 4 weeks ]
    Stool samples will be analyzed by appropriate molecular biological methods like 16S rRNA gene sequencing to gain insight into the composition of the gut microbiota. Furthermore, metabolites like SCFA and other organic acids will be measured with appropriate chromatographic methods.
  • Faecal Short Chain Fatty Acids concentration [ Time Frame: 4 weeks ]
    Change in Short Chain Fatty Acids over a four week period.
  • Faecal pH [ Time Frame: 4 weeks ]
    Change in faecal pH over a four week period.

    Change in amount and stool colour over a four week period
  • Treatment success [ Time Frame: 4 weeks ]
    Change in diagnosis criteria over a four week period
  • Faecal microbiota [ Time Frame: 4 weeks ]
    Change in faecal microbiota over a four week period
  • faecal SCFA concentration [ Time Frame: 4 weeks ]
    Change in SCFA over a four week period

Brief Title  ICMJE Prebiotic Fructans Effect on 1-3 Years Constipated Children's Bowel Habits
Official Title  ICMJE Double-blind, Randomized Placebo-controlled Trial Investigating the Effect of Prebiotic Fructans on Bowel Habits of Constipated Young Children One to Three Years of Age
Brief Summary The aim of the study is to confirm the effectiveness of chicory-derived prebiotic inulin-type fructans on bowel function in young children.
Detailed Description The aim of the study is to confirm the effectiveness of chicory-derived prebiotic inulin-type fructans on bowel function in young children. It is a double-blind, randomized, placebo-controlled trial.This study plans to recruit into the group of 100 participants (at least 80 of them completed) in 2018-2020.The two groups for the study are product group (prebiotic fructans) and control group (placebo maltodextrin).Duration of intervention is 6 weeks, including 2 weeks for run-in and 4 weeks for intervention.Efficacy parameters are stool consistency (assessed with Amsterdam infant stool scale),stool frequency, stool amount and stool color (assessed with Amsterdam infant stool scale, treatment success, tolerance and acceptability).
