Bernd Schnabl, MD, is a practicing physician and associate professor at University of California San Diego. His research focuses on the cellular and molecular mechanisms that contribute to chronic liver disease. The "leaky gut hypothesis" of liver disease is the idea that bacteria passing from the gastrointestinal tract to extraintestinal sites may contribute to disease onset and progression. But the…

Many studies are moving beyond investigation of species that are present in the gut, and addressing how the gut microbiota function. How do they achieve, for example, their influence on weight? Irish researchers found that microbial bile salt hydrolase (BSH) activity changed functions in the host, both in the gastrointestinal tract and in the liver. In mice, gastrointestinal expression of…

Results of a research collaboration between Harvard and Danone, released today, show that an 'underrated' species of bacteria, Lactococcus lactis CNCM I-1631, conferred beneficial effects in mouse models of inflammation. Dr. Wendy Garrett, Associate Professor at Harvard's Chan School of Public Health, says the line of research came out of an observation, several years ago, that a fermented milk product…
