Antibiotic use associated with inflammatory bowel disease in older adults
American Gastroenterological Association (AGA)

The more antibiotics prescribed to patients 60 and older, the more likely they were to develop inflammatory bowel disease, suggesting antibiotic use could explain some of the growth in Crohn’s disease and ulcerative colitis in older people, according to a review of 2.3 million patient records in a study selected for presentation at Digestive Disease Week® (DDW) 2022.

What Is Necrotizing Enterocolitis?
Children's Hospital Los Angeles

Early treatment can help overcome this life-threatening condition in premature infants. For the parents of premature babies, the condition known as necrotizing enterocolitis (NEC) is as frightening as it sounds. NEC is the most common and serious intestinal disease among premature babies. The problem inflames intestinal tissue but babies can recover and researchers are investigating new treatments.

Penn-Developed CAR T Cells Suppress GI Solid Tumor Cells, Without Toxicity to Healthy Tissue, in Preclinical Research
Perelman School of Medicine at the University of Pennsylvania

Chimeric antigen receptor (CAR) T cells can be remarkably effective in treating leukemias and lymphomas, but there are no successful immunotherapies for neuroendocrine tumors (NETs) and gastrointestinal cancers (GICs) yet. Researchers at Penn Medicine have discovered that CAR-T cells directed to a tumor antigen, CDH17, a cell surface marker expressed on both NETs and GICs but also found on healthy tissues, eliminated GICs in several preclinical models without toxicity to normal tissues in multiple mouse organs, including the small intestine and colon. The results from this study, the first to target CDH17 in neuroendocrine tumors, suggest a new class of tumor associated antigens accessible to CAR-T cells in tumors but sequestered from CAR-T cells in healthy tissues.

New study shows how the intestine’s nervous system affects gut microbes
University of Oregon

New research by University of Oregon biologists has found that the intestines help regulate the gut’s acidity, which helps keep their bacterial communities in balance. Microbiologist Karen Guillemin and neuroscientist Judith Eisen will publish their findings February 1 in the journal PLOS Pathogens. In the study, they used a common heartburn medication in zebrafish to alter gut acidity and change microbial communities. Scientists have known for years that gut bacteria are important for digestive health. And other studies have demonstrated a strong connection between the gut and the brain. The new work links those two mostly distinct areas of research together.
