We interviewed Prof. Paul O’Toole, Senior Lecturer at University College Cork, to discuss bacterial colonisation, or how bacteria reach the digestive tract from birth. The kind of birth, the family environment and food are some…

We have already explained that the bacteria that inhabit the digestive tract – the gut microbiota – carry out key functions in terms of people’s health. Among these tasks, this “organ” (as described by some scientists) plays an essential role in our body’s defences. A team of researchers from the University of California, San Francisco (USA) recently observed that the HIV infection significantly modifies the balance of the gut microbiota, thus weakening the immune system and contributing to the progression of the disease. The results of the study have been published by the journal Science Translational Medicine. This study allowed the researchers to observe that the gut microbiota in HIV-infected…

Some months ago, California welcomed the TEDxCaltech: The Brain conference, where experts from different areas discussed a range of issues about the brain and the future of neuroscience. At one of the sessions, Elaine Hsiao, PhD…

Functional disorders are those in which the parameters of analyses and tests are normal, even though people may be suffering from pain or other symptoms. According to what Prof. Magnus Simren, chairman of the United…
