Is there a link between stroke and changes in gut bacteria?

Brand-new research study examines whether a stroke can impact the variety of bacterial populations in the gut and whether these modifications might affect the brain’s healing procedure. A stroke can trigger modifications in gut germs that might last for a very long time and effect health results. The Centers for Illness Control and Avoidance (CDC) … Read more

‘Harmless’ microbe may cause death of good gut bacteria

Great germs are vital for gut health. New research study discovers that another kind of gut microorganism might be threatening the useful germs population. New research study discovers a microorganism that might reduce useful gut germs. Trillions of microorganisms exist in the gut. The bulk are germs. Nevertheless, other types– consisting of infections and single … Read more

How A Good Gut Bacteria Became A Vicious Pathogen

( Credit: Santypan/Shutterstock) In 1984, germs began appearing in clients’ blood at the University of Wisconsin Medical Facility and Center. Germs do not belong in the blood and such infections can rapidly intensify into septic shock, a harmful condition. Eventually, blood samples exposed the perpetrator: A microorganism that usually resides in the gut called Enterococcus … Read more

Mode of delivery alters infants’ gut microbiota and this may impact respiratory health in first year of life

New research being presented at this year’s European Congress of Clinical Microbiology & Infectious Diseases (ECCMID) in Amsterdam, the Netherlands (13-16 April), suggests that mode of delivery influences the development of the microbial composition of the gut (i.e. the gut microbiota) in infants, independently of a mother’s use of antibiotics. This, in turn, may affect … Read more

Researchers look at the link between gut bacteria and autism

New research looks to the gut microbiome to try to address some of the symptoms associated with autism, but this investigation comes with its own set of problems. New research looks at the importance of gut bacteria in autism. The National Institute of Neurological Disorders and Stroke explain that “[a]utism spectrum disorder (ASD) refers to … Read more

Bacteria flip an electric switch to worsen food poisoning: Infection-driven change in macrophage movements disseminates bacteria throughout the body

Salmonella bacteria flip an electric switch as they hitch a ride inside immune cells, causing the cells to migrate out of the gut toward other parts of the body, according to a new study publishing on April 9 in the open-access journal PLOS Biology by Yaohui Sun and Alex Mogilner of New York University and … Read more

Van Tyne et al., Science Translational Medicine (2019) A team of researchers from several institutions in the U.S. has unveiled the evolutionary process that transformed a common type of human gut bacteria into a deadly infectious agent. In their paper published … Read more

Autism symptoms reduced nearly 50 percent two years after fecal transplant

According to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, about one in every 59 children in the U.S. is diagnosed with autism, up from one in every 150 in 2000. They report that “about half a million people on the autism spectrum will become adults over the next decade, a swelling tide for which the … Read more
