Salovum® can be used in the acute phase or as the beginning treatment of patients with a presumed low amount of AF.
Salovum® can normalize fluid flow. This is of clinical significance within bowel diseases, diarrhea, Mèniére and Mastitis.
Salovum® has also been shown to have an anti-inflammatory effect which was seen in studies of inflammatory bowel disease (IBD) like Colitis Ulcerosa and Crohn’s disease.
