Volunteer for NIAID-funded clinical studies related to salmonellosis on ClinicalTrials.gov.
If you are like most people with salmonella, the disease will clear up within five to seven days and you won’t need to be treated. If you have severe diarrhea, however, you may need intravenous fluids. If the disease spreads from your intestines into your bloodstream, your healthcare provider can treat it with antibiotics such as ampicillin. Some strains of Salmonella have become resistant to several antibiotics normally used to treat people with salmonella disease, posing a serious public health threat.
