PROBIOTICS AND MAMMALIAN GASTROINTESTINAL IMMUNE SYSTEM

Probiotics are microorganisms that provide health benefits when consumed. These are also food supplements or food products containing specified probiotic microorganisms. Probiotic microorganisms colonize the gastrointestinal tract of the host environment, reducing the risk of pathogenic bacteria growth and their potential impact on the regulation of host immune responses. They also have the ability to eliminate pathogenic bacteria. The administration of probiotic microorganisms in addition to

Pitfalls in ultrasound imaging of the stomach and the intestines

The gastrointestinal tract is an extraordinary human organ in terms of its morphology and function. Its complex structure and enormous length as well as frequent presence of gas discourage many doctors performing ultrasound examination from its exploration. Moreover, there are anatomical structures in multiple locations which can mimic certain abnormalities. It is difficult to present an exhaustive account of the problem of gastrointestinal tract ultrasound imaging errors in a single work

Exopolysaccharides Produced by Lactobacillus rhamnosus KL 53A and Lactobacillus casei Fyos Affect Their Adhesion to Enterocytes

Probiotics promote and help to maintain beneficial microbiota composition of the gastrointestinal tract ecosystem and have a positive impact on the host’s health. Production of exopolysaccharides is an important feature of probiotic lactobacilli. It increases the chance of their survival in the gastrointestinal tract and promotes adhesion to the epithelium; therefore, exopolysaccharides are important for the process of colonization. Two lactic acid bacteria strains were used in this study

A reminder of peristalsis as a useful tool in the prenatal differential diagnosis of abdominal cystic masses

With routine antenatal ultrasound and recent advances in ultrasound technology, fetal intraabdominal cystic masses are recognized more often and are better characterized than in the past. They may be classified as solid and cystic, and may originate from multiple structures. When considering the extensive differential diagnosis of cystic masses, the observation of peristalsis narrows the possibilities to the gastrointestinal tract. To find this feature on ultrasound, the examiner must expressly

BACTEROIDES SPP. – CLINICAL SIGNIFICANCE, ANTIBIOTIC RESISTANCE AND IDENTIFICATION METHODS

Anaerobic Bacteroides species are dominant microbiota of the digestive tract of mammals. Along with other symbiotic bacteria located in the gastrointestinal tract, they contribute to the proper functioning of the organism. Some Bacteroides species are highly pathogenic. Virulence of these bacteria is related to their polysaccharide capsule, lipopolysaccharide and a variety of enzymes and enterotoxin. In recent years, an increase of antibiotic resistance in Bacteroides spp. has been noted

SEARCHING FOR CAUSES OF NECROTISING ENTEROCOLITIS. AN APPLICATION OF PROPENSITY MATCHING

Necrotising enterocolitis (NEC) is a disease of the gastrointestinal tract afflicting preterm-born infants in the first few weeks of their lives. We estimate the effect of changing the feeding regimen of infants in their first 14 postnatal days by analysing the data from the UK National Neonatal Research Database. We avoid some problems with drawing causal inferences from observational data by reducing the analysis to the infants who spent the first 14 postnatal days (or longer) in neonatal

DIFFUSELY ADHERING ESCHERICHIA COLI

the presence of Dr adhesins are associated with twice as high a risk of a recurring infection of the urinary tract, which suggests their involvement in recurrent or chronic infections of this system [51]. 5.2. Gastrointestinal tract infections Afa/Dr-positive E. coli cause diarrhoea in children of between 2 and 5 years of age. The occurrence of diarrhoea being limited to this age group may be the result of the structural and functional immaturity of the intestinal epithelial layer, as well as

PATHOGENICITY OF LACTOBACILLUS SP. – RISK FACTORS, IDENTIFICATION, ANTIBIOTIC RESISTANCE

Lactobacilli are found in the mucous membrane of the mouth, in the gastrointestinal tract (GIT) and in the genitourinary tract. It is known that lactobacilli have a beneficial effect on our health and are used in the production of fermented milk, yoghurts, cheese, and probiotics. However, in this article I show that lactic acid bacteria also cause many diseases. Lactobacilli produce lactic acid which acidifies the environment. There are some factors increasing the risk of infection caused by

Increased short-term food intake after external lateral parabrachial subnucleus lesions in rats

INTRODUCTION Short-term satiety (or satiation) is a motivational behavior that appears to largely depend on visceral-cerebral neurobiological mechanisms (Snowdon and Epstein, 1970; Deutsch, 1990; Kaplan et al., 1993; Schwartz et al., 1999; Hamr et al., 2015). In normal conditions, information relating to food originating from different levels of the gastrointestinal tract is transmitted via neural pathways to the central nervous system, where they appear to decisively contribute to cessation of

Gastric Microbiota Alteration in Klebsiella pneumoniae-Caused Liver Abscesses Mice

; Zibari et al. 2000). Recently the rate of KLA infection has increased greatly even up to 70% in some regions (Kuo et al. 2013). And drug-resistant K. pneumoniae isolated from KLA infection has been reported to be increased in Beijing (Li et al. 2014). It is well known that oral-gastrointestinal tract is one of the main pathways for the foreign pathogen, which causes human infection. Klebsiella spp. of oral origin causes various diseases not only in the gastrointestinal tract but also in other organs

Pathogenic Potential of Fresh, Frozen, and Thermally Treated Anisakis spp. Type II (L3) (Nematoda: Anisakidae) after Oral Inoculation into Wistar Rats: A Histopathological Study

The third-stage (L3) larvae of Anisakis are the etiological agents of human anisakiasis caused by consumption of raw or undercooked seafood infected with anisakid nematodes. Infection with these worms is associated with abdominal pain, nausea, and diarrhea and can lead to massive infiltration of eosinophils and the formation of granulomas in the gastrointestinal tract if the larvae are not removed. Food allergy affects populations worldwide, and despite several reports on the presence of the
