the new oral drug Dificid (DIFF-ih-sid, fidaxomicin) for Clostridium difficile diarrhea

You'll hear the new oral drug Dificid (DIFF-ih-sid, fidaxomicin) for Clostridium difficile diarrhea is superior to oral vancomycin.

That's because Dificid works at least as well as vancomycin to control C. diff...but seems to have a lower risk of recurrence.

There's one less recurrence within one month for every 10 patients treated with Dificid instead of oral vancomycin.
