Gut microbiota

Latest articles

Mutualistic interactions between host and commensal microbiota have a pivotal role in colonization resistance (CR), protection against infections by enteric pathogens such as Salmonella spp. Previous research supporting this idea includes a study of the commensal bacterium Enterococcus faecium found in the mammals’ intestines that may improve host intestinal barrier function and limit the pathogenesis of infections caused by Salmonella…

A recent study led by Dr. Jun Sun (Department of Medicine, University of Illinois, Chicago, USA) has found that butyrate, a bacterial metabolic by-product, may normalize the intestinal environment, including gut microbiota composition, and increase life span in a mouse model of amyotrophic lateral sclerosis (ALS). In humans, ALS (also known as Lou Gehrig’s disease) is a neurodegenerative disease in…

Previous research has shown that the gut microbiota may have a role in the pathogenesis of immune-related diseases involving chronic inflammation, such as rheumatoid arthritis, Crohn’s disease, multiple sclerosis, and others. A recent review, led by Dr. Hai Lu from the Department of Orthopedic Surgery at The Third Affiliated Hospital of Southern Medical University in Guangzhou (China), discusses the existing…
