    General information about the trial
    Main objective of the trial
    The main objective of the study was to demonstrate that domperidone suspension (1 milligram per milliliter [mg/mL]) plus oral rehydration treatment (ORT) was more effective than placebo plus ORT at reducing the symptoms of vomiting associated with acute gastroenteritis (AG) within the first 48 hours of treatment administration in pediatric subjects aged 6 months to 12 years with AG and mild-to-moderate dehydration.
    Protection of trial subjects
    This study was conducted in accordance with the ethical principles that have their origin in the Declaration of Helsinki and that are consistent with Good Clinical Practice and applicable regulatory requirements and also known instances of nonconformance were documented and are not considered to have had an impact on the overall conclusions of this study. Safety included incidence, and assessment of adverse events (AEs) vital sign measurements, physical examinations, adverse events of special interest (AESIs) that were referred to as adverse events (AEs) of clinical interest in the data outputs.

    Change in Hydration Score From Day 1 (Baseline) to day 2
    End point description
    The severity of dehydration were assessed using the Dehydration Score Assessment. a Children under 24 month of age with a score range 7 to 10 points have mild dehydration and children with a score range of 11 to 17 points have moderate dehydration (only children under 24 months of age are evaluated for tears). b) Children 24 months of age or older with a score range of 6 to 9 points have mild dehydration and children with a score range of 10 to 15 points have moderate dehydration. and c) Children under 24 months of age with scores of 18 or more and children 24 months of age or older with scores of 16 or more are considered to be severely dehydrated and were excluded from the study. Here 'N' signifies number of subjects who were analyzed for this endpoint. The ITT population included all the randomized subjects.
