On September 13, 2017 researchers from the Massachusetts Institute of Technology and the University of Massachusetts Medical School simultaneously published papers in Nature on the same intriguing topic: a link between autism and infection during pregnancy.
Molecular Biologists found that you’re more likely to develop PTSD if you lack in certain immune supporting bacteria
The trillions of bacteria that live in our intestines, known collectively as the gut microbiome, have been linked to maladies from eye disease to rheumatoid arthritis. Now, two new studies have added another disease: multiple sclerosis (MS)
When Jonathan Scheiman describes his lab as “a lot of crazy shit,” he’s not kidding. For the last three years, the 35-year-old molecular biologist has been working at Harvard University studying the, um, stool of pro marathoners, ultra- runners, and Olympic rowers.
Previous research has found that multiple sclerosis (MS) patients may have a specific microbial signature in their gut microbiota that could impact disease pathogenesis.
Description: Human Microbiome Report by Material, Application, and Geography — Global Forecast to 2021 is a professional and comprehensive research report on the world’s major regional market conditions, focusing on the main regions (North America, Europe and Asia-Pacific) and the main countries (United States, Germany, United Kingdom,Japan, South Korea and China).
ENTEROME SA, a pioneer of innovative therapies for microbiome-related diseases, is pleased to announce the successful completion of the first Phase 1 clinical study with its lead candidate EB8018, a small molecule designed to block FimH, as a potential new orally-administered treatment for Crohn’s disease.
Researchers from McMaster University (Canada) had a clear question in mind when they conducted their recent experiment: if a mouse had its gut microbiota altered by antibiotics in early life, what would happen to its brain?
ABSTRACT The present study was aimed to investigate the impacts of brown rice (BR) and retrograded brown rice (R-BR) consumption on colonic health and gut microbiota in dextran sulfate sodium (DSS) induced colitis mice. Thirty two female C57Bl/6Mlac mice were fed with modified AIN 93G diets by replacing cornstarch in the original composition with white […]
ABSTRACT We have experimentally investigated the immunoregulatory effects of human gut microbiota in multiple sclerosis (MS). We have identified specific bacteria that are associated with MS and demonstrated that these bacteria regulate T lymphocyte-mediated adaptive immune responses and contribute to the proinflammatory environment in vitro and in vivo. Thus, our results expand the knowledge of […]
ABSTRACT The bodies of mammals are hosts to vast microbial communities composed of trillions of bacteria from thousands of species, whose effects on health and development have begun to be appreciated only recently.
Highlights •Oral supplementation of pancrelipase alters composition of intestinal microbiota. •Over-represented taxa include bacteria promoting intestinal homeostasis.
Highlights •This is the first study on the anti-diabetic effect of AMK in db/db mice. •AMK attenuated insulin resistance and regulated glucose and lipid metabolism.
Abstract Constipation, a common and complex clinical symptom, is a predisposing factor for many serious diseases, such as gastrointestinal diseases, cardiovascular diseases and cancers.
Abstract: Background: Although the relation of the gut microbiota to a development of autoimmune and inflammatory diseases has been investigated in various animal models, there are limited studies that evaluate the effect of probiotics in the autoimmune eye disease.
Gut reasons to brush your teeth Some gut conditions, such as inflammatory bowel disease (IBD), ulcerative colitis, and Crohn’s disease (CD), are associated with imbalances in the gut microbe community.
Despite increased investment, there are still major challenges generating effective pre-clinical data and translating that into the clinic; including building an effective CMC strategy that allows a realistic scale-up. Another major challenge is navigating the regulatory landscape in Europe which is becoming increasingly difficult and has even resulted in companies setting up offices in the […]
This post is by MSU grad student Connie Rojas: Microbes colonize every surface of their hosts. Once established, they do not live in isolated patches, but instead form highly regulated, structurally and functionally organized communities, termed ‘microbiota’.
Significance Studies using experimental models have indicated that multiple sclerosis (MS)-like disease can be triggered in the gut following interactions of brain autoimmune T lymphocytes with local microbiota.
Gnotobiotics, edited by Trenton Schoeb and Kathryn Eaton, is invaluable to those developing or managing gnotobiotic facilities.
Brigham Young University: We all know that a poor diet is unhealthy, but a new BYU study finds that stress may just as harmful to our bodies as a really bad diet.
Abstract For more than three decades it has been recognized that small amounts of vector saliva can significantly alter the infectivity of vector-borne pathogens and subsequent in vivo dynamics.
Abstract Mouse models have enabled breakthroughs in our understanding of the immune system, but it has become increasingly popular to emphasize their shortcomings when translating observations to humans.
Highlights •Systematic analysis of longevity-promoting microbial genetic variations •Colanic acid as a pro-longevity natural compound effective in different species
