More Than a Watchdog

Harvard Medical School

Study in mice shows the nervous system not only detects the presence of Salmonella in the gut but actively stops the organism from infecting the body Nerves in the gut prevent Salmonella infection by shutting the cellular gates that allow bacteria to invade the intestine and spread beyond it As a second line of defense, gut neurons help avert Salmonella invasion by maintaining the levels of key protective microbes in the gut Findings reveal prominent role for nervous system in infection protection and regulation of immunity

Newswise: Study Finds ‘Virtual Biopsy’ Allows Doctors to Accurately Diagnose Precancerous Pancreatic Cysts

Study Finds ‘Virtual Biopsy’ Allows Doctors to Accurately Diagnose Precancerous Pancreatic Cysts

Ohio State University Wexner Medical Center

Research from doctors at The Ohio State University Wexner Medical Center finds a new “virtual biopsy” allows them to definitively diagnose cysts in the pancreas with unprecedented accuracy. This means they can eliminate precancerous cysts and potentially save lives.

Newswise: Gut microbes alter characteristics of norovirus infection

Gut microbes alter characteristics of norovirus infection

Washington University in St. Louis

The highly contagious norovirus causes diarrhea and vomiting and is notorious for spreading rapidly through densely populated spaces, such as cruise ships, nursing homes, schools and day care centers. There are no treatments for this intestinal virus. A new study led by scientists at Washington University School of Medicine in St. Louis has shown that gut microbes can tamp down or boost the severity of norovirus infection based on where along the intestine the virus takes hold.

Newswise: Intestinal Stem Cell Genes May Link Dietary Fat and Colon Cancer

Intestinal Stem Cell Genes May Link Dietary Fat and Colon Cancer

Rutgers University-New Brunswick

Two genes that appear to help stem cells in the intestine burn dietary fat may play a role in colon cancer, according to a Rutgers study. The study, published in the journal Gastroenterology, describes a new connection between the way cells consume fat and how genes regulate stem cell behavior in the intestines of mice.

Newswise: Mapping the pathway to gut health in HIV patients

Mapping the pathway to gut health in HIV patients

UC Davis Health

A UC Davis study found that Lactobacillus plantarum bacteria rapidly repaired damaged gut lining (known as leaky gut) in monkeys infected with chronic simian immunodeficiency virus (SIV), an HIV-like virus. It linked chronically inflamed leaky gut to the loss of PPARα signaling and damage to mitochondria.
