Do interventions which reduce colonic bacterial fermentation improve symptoms of irritable bowel syndrome?

Dig. Dis. Sci. 2005 Apr;50(4):758-66.
PubMed Citation Journal Link

Abnormal fermentation may be an important factor in irritable bowel syndrome (IBS). Gastroenteritis or antibiotic therapy may damage the colonic microflora, leading to increased fermentation...5 vs 0.45 ml/min), with a significant improvement in abdominal symptoms. IBS may be associated with rapid excretion of gaseous products of fermentation, whose reduction may improve symptoms.
