Researchers Identify Regulatory System in Ulcer-Causing Bacteria That Controls Formation of Bacterial Communities

Researchers have discovered a regulatory system in the ulcer- and stomach cancer-causing bacteria, Helicobacter pylori, that can control the formation of biofilm – a “fortress-like” cluster of cells that can become resistant to antibiotics and cause major medical problems.

Modified Rye Bread Helps Patients with Irritable Bowel Syndrome

Patients with irritable bowel syndrome (IBS) are often concerned that certain foods may trigger or worsen their symptoms, which can include abdominal pain, diarrhea, or constipation. In a new study, patients who ate rye bread that was low in so-called “FODMAPs” (fermentable oligo- di- and mono-saccharides and polyols) experienced milder IBS symptoms than patients who ate normal rye bread

Key to Chronic Fatigue Syndrome Is in Your Gut, Not Head

Physicians have been mystified by chronic fatigue syndrome, a condition where normal exertion leads to debilitating fatigue that isn’t alleviated by rest. There are no known triggers, and diagnosis requires lengthy tests administered by an expert. Now, for the first time, Cornell University researchers report they have identified biological markers of the disease in gut bacteria and inflammatory microbial agents in the blood.

“It’s the diarrhea that can kill you,” noted professor emeritus David Francis, an expert on colibacillosis, an intestinal disease that affects newborn and weanling pigs. The toxin-producing E. Coli bacterium that causes the swine disease is similar to the organism responsible for traveler’s diarrhea in humans. Francis will speak at the 24th International Veterinary Conference in Dublin, Ireland, June 7-10.

Gut Microbes’ Metabolite Dampens Proliferation of Intestinal Stem Cells

Intestinal stem cells are located in “pockets” in the intestine to avoid contact with a metabolite abundantly produced by normal gut microbes. That metabolite – butyrate – suppresses stem cell proliferation, potentially interfering with the gut’s ability to repair itself after disease or injury.
