"In conclusion, the commensal species E. hirae and B. intestinihominis enhance the anticancer immune responses of CTX. “In future studies, we plan to..." [New in our blog]

#cancer #gutmicrobiota
Previous research has shown that the mechanisms of drug action such as chemopreventive activity of celecoxib and effects of metformin in type 2 diabetes patients appear to be shaped by gut microbial communities. A recent study, led by Dr. Laurence Zitvogel from the Institut de Cancérologie Gustave Roussy Cancer Campus in Villejuif (France), has found …

"The main idea of this paper is that gut microbiota dysbiosis induced by obesity is not immediately reversed after a return to baseline weight—a caution against the assumption that gut microbiota will always ‘match’ phenotype. The gut microbiota dysbiosis appeared to accelerate weight gain under..." [New post in our blog]

#gutmicrobiota #obesity #weightgain
For many humans affected by obesity, the challenge of initial weight loss is less than the challenge of maintaining the weight loss over the long term. Studies in large populations have found that, while long-term maintenance of weight loss is possible, its prevalence in real life remains below satisfactory levels. Individuals may experience recurrent weight …

"In conclusion, the consumption of a fermented milk product with B. lactis CNCM I-2494 and lactic acid bacteria is associated with a consistent and significant improvement of outcomes related to mild gastrointestinal discomfort in healthy adults. It must be mentioned that..." [New in our blog]

#probiotic #fermentedfood
Gastrointestinal discomfort includes different digestive symptoms such as abdominal pain, bloating, borborygmi (rumbling) and flatulence, which may impact quality of life among the general population. Probiotics can potentially improve gut function through several mechanisms and they may be an effective therapy for those with irritable bowel syndrome. A recent systematic review and meta-analysis, led by …

"The MoBioFood (Molecular Bioactivity of Foods) Research Group from the Biochemistry and Biotechnology Department at the Rovira i Virgili University in Tarragona (Spain) focuses on the interaction of flavonoids with the enteroendocrine system, and the role of these compounds in maintaining intestinal barrier integrity and/or inducing anti-inflammatory effects in the gastrointestinal tract." [New in our blog]

#gutmicrobiota #flavonids
Currently, a growing body of scientific evidence shows that flavonoids could exert a protective role against obesity-related pathologies by modulating intestinal inflammation, barrier integrity and gut microbiota composition and functionality. The MoBioFood (Molecular Bioactivity of Foods) Research Group from the Biochemistry and Biotechnology Department at the Rovira i Virgili University in Tarragona (Spain) focuses on …

"The results also suggest that the mother’s immune system may play a role in the development of asthma and allergies in children." [New in our blog]

#gutmicrobiota #immunesystem #asthma #allergies
A recent study led by Dr. Alex Mira (FISABIO, Spain) and Dr. Maria C. Jenmalm (Linköping University, Sweden) and researchers at IATA-CSIC (Spain) has presented an analysis of a total of 192 faecal samples from 28 healthy children and 20 children developing allergic symptoms at age seven, from when the children were 1 and 12 …

"In conclusion, probiotics may have a beneficial effect in prevention of chemoradiotherapy-induced diarrhoea, especially for Grade ≥ 2 diarrhoea, and appear to be safe for this kind of intervention." [New post in our blog]

#gutmicrobiota #probiotics #dirrhoea
Scientific evidence shows probiotics may have a role in treating acute infectious diarrhoea and preventing antibiotic-associated diarrhoea. However, little is known regarding their role in the treatment of diarrhoea generated as a result of radiotherapy or chemotherapy treatments. A recent systematic review and meta-analysis, led by Dr. C-X Pei from The First Clinical Medical College …

"To sum up, this is the first time that probiotic supplementation has been shown to benefit cognitive function and metabolic status in AD patients. Further human studies and longer follow-up periods are needed in order to..." [New in our blog]

#gutmicrobiota #probiotics 
Alzheimer’s disease (AD) is an inflammatory condition considered one of the most common forms of senile dementia, and previous research in mice has shown that changes in gut bacteria could enhance inflammation and amyloidosis. Besides this, metabolic alterations such as insulin resistance and glucose metabolism dysregulation and altered lipid metabolism have also been linked to …

#probiotics #gutmicrobiota 
In many parts of the world, probiotics are subject to different manufacturing and quality control standards than pharmaceuticals. Could these different standards have any implications for patient health? Mary Ellen Sanders and colleagues recently wrote a commentary in the Journal of the American Pharmacists Association on probiotic use in at-risk populations. In the paper, they …

#gutmicrobiota #fibre
Dietary fibre from plant-based foods is the most common fuel for some bacterial species in the gut microbiota and in some contexts has been shown to play a key role in protecting the host against immune-mediated diseases such food allergies and even neurological disorders. A diet rich in microbiota-accessible carbohydrates (MACs), which are complex carbohydrates …

Irritable bowel syndrome (IBS) is the most prevalent functional gastrointestinal disorder in western societies and recent research has proposed gut microbiota as one of the potential main factors involved. However, little is known regarding the relationship between the composition and function of the gut microbiota and clinical symptoms of IBS. A recent study, led by …
