Ya desde que nacemos, y a lo largo de toda nuestra vida, vivimos en armonía con las bacterias y otros microorganismos que se alojan en el intestino, un conjunto dinámico denominado microbiota intestinal. Estas bacterias, que se cuentan por cientos de billones, son cruciales para nuestra salud. Desempeñan un papel clave en actividades importantes del organismo, desde mantener en funcionamiento…

«Quiero hacer algo importante en la vida. No solo arrastrarme del punto A al punto B hasta mi muerte,» escribía un paciente de síndrome del intestino irritable (SII), una enfermedad caracterizada por el dolor y los calambres, las flatulencias y ciclos alternos de diarrea y estreñimiento. Es una declaración de absoluta desesperación. Y viene de una persona cuyo diagnóstico es…

Todo un clásico: empieza un nuevo año y una vez más, nos hemos propuesto adelgazar. Así que nos ponemos a dieta y perdemos unos cuantos kilos. Pero poco a poco volvemos a nuestros antiguos hábitos alimentarios y acabamos por recuperar todo lo perdido. Seguir un régimen—una modificación temporal de nuestra alimentación, restringiendo el consumo de ciertos alimentos —puede conducir al…

Research & Practice

Faecal microbiota transplantation (FMT) is a therapy targeting the gut microbiome with the strongest evidence for efficacy in the treatment of recurrent Clostridium difficile infection. Although gut microbiota dysbiosis is involved in the pathogenesis of ulcerative colitis, the role of FMT as a therapy for it is still controversial as the two big randomised controlled trials done previously (here; here)…

Paul Enck
Prof. Dr. Paul Enck, Director of Research, Dept. of Psychosomatic Medicine and Psychotherapy, University Hospital Tübingen, Germany. His main interests are gut functions in health and disease, including functional and inflammatory bowel disorders, the role of the gut microbiota, regulation of eating and food intake and its disorders, of nausea, vomiting and motion sickness, and the psychophysiology and neurobiology of the placebo response, with specific emphasis on age and gender contributions. He has published more than 170 original data paper in scientific, peer-reviewed journals, and more than 250 book chapters and review articles. He is board member/treasurer of the European Society of Neurogastroenterology and Motility and of the German Society of Neurogastroenterology and Motility, and has served as reviewer for many international journals and grant agencies.

Hepatic encephalopathy is a brain dysfunction involving neurological and psychiatric changes associated with liver insufficiency or portal-systemic shunting with a severity that ranges from minor symptoms to coma. There have been reported differences in gut microbiota between those with and without hepatic encephalopathy. A previous Cochrane systematic review including 38 randomised clinical trials on non-absorbable disaccharides (lactulose and lactitol) versus…

Celiac disease (CeD) is a complex immune mediated disorder that is triggered by abnormal immune responses to the dietary protein gluten, which is found in grains like wheat, barley, and rye. Normally, immune tolerance to dietary proteins prevents inflammatory immune responses from developing. However, in those with CeD, the presence of HLA susceptibility genes plus unknown environmental or immune triggers…

Heather Galipeau is a Research Associate at McMaster University (Canada) where she is researching dietary and microbial interactions in celiac disease and inflammatory bowel disease. She obtained her PhD in 2015 from McMaster University in Elena Verdu’s lab, during which she found that the small intestinal microbial background influences the degree of immuno-pathology triggered by dietary antigens, such as gluten.

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…
