A case of reverse development: Dana-Farber scientists solve long-debated puzzle of how the intestine heals itself

Dana-Farber Cancer Institute

Scientists find that normal intestinal cells “de-differentiate” en masse into stem cells that generate the cells needed for a healthy intestinal lining. New study establishes de-differentiation as the predominant mode of stem cell recover in the intestine

New mouse model for celiac disease to speed research on treatments

University of Chicago Medical Center

Researchers at the University of Chicago have developed the first truly accurate mouse model of celiac disease. The animals have the same genetic and immune system characteristics as humans who develop celiac after eating gluten. This provides a vital research tool for developing and testing new treatments for the disease.

Human Gut-in-a-Dish Model Helps Define ‘Leaky Gut,’ and Outline a Pathway to Treatment

University of California San Diego Health

UC San Diego researchers use 3D human gut organoids to reveal the molecular system that keeps intestinal linings sealed, demonstrate how the system breaks down and how it can be strengthened with the diabetes drug metformin.
