Abstract

Metabolic syndrome is associated with disturbances in gut microbiota composition. We aimed to investigate the effect of Lactobacillus casei Shirota (LcS) on gut microbiota composition, gut barrier integrity, intestinal inflammation and serum bile acid profile in metabolic syndrome.

Lactobacilli for Health Applications

Engineered lactobacilli have successfully been tested as delivery vectors in various disease models, including models of colitis and food and mouth disease. Here is the latest research on the application of lactobacilli for health.

Gut Microbiota And Brain In Aging

Gut microbiota composition has been implicated in neuroinflammatory responses, as well as brain aging and brain-aging related diseases like amyloid neuropathies. Here is the latest research.

Metabolic Syndrome & Cardiovascular Disease

The constellation of dyslipidemia (hypertriglyceridemia and low levels of high-density lipoprotein cholesterol), elevated blood pressure, impaired glucose tolerance, and central obesity is now classified as metabolic syndrome, also called syndrome X. It is considered to be a precursor of cardiovascular disease. Discover the latest research on metabolic syndrome and cardiovascular disease here.

CV Disorders & Type 2 Diabetes

This feed focuses on the association of cardiovascular diseases in patients with type 2 diabetes.

Probiotics & Prebiotics

Probiotics are beneficial bacteria, while prebiotics are food for these bacteria. Here is the latest research on probiotics and prebiotics.

Gut microbiota & type 2 diabetes

The feed focuses on the emerging role of Gut Microbiota, also known as the gastrointestinal microbiome, in Type 2 Diabetes. Deficiency in gut microbiota has been linked to type 2 diabetes.

Cardiovascular Disease Pathophysiology

Cardiovascular disease involves several different processes that contribute to the pathological mechanism, including hyperglycemia, inflammation, atherosclerosis, hypertension and more. Vasculature stability plays a critical role in the development of the disease. Discover the latest research on cardiovascular disease pathophysiology here.

Microbiome & Human Microbiota

The human microbiota is composed of all microorganisms that reside inside and on the human body. This feed focuses on the collective genomes of all these microorganisms. Here is the latest research.

Human Microbiota: Small Molecules

This feed focuses on small molecules produced by the human microbiota. Several small molecules representing each of the major metabolic classes have been identified and implicated in several biological processes including modulation of the immune system and antibiosis. Here is the latest research.

Metabolic Networks & Microbiomes

This feed focuses on proteomics, transcriptomics, and metabolomics in the human microbiota, as well as on metabolic pathways and reactions that underlie physiological and biochemical properties of the cell. Here is the latest research on metabolic networks in the microbiome.

Gut Microbiome & the Brain

Microbes in the gut communicate with the central nervous system (CNS) via at least three parallel and interacting channels including endocrine, nervous, and immune signaling. Here is the latest research on the brain-gut-microbiome axis.

Inflammation & Obesity

Obesity is the accumulation of abnormal or excessive fat that may interfere with the maintenance of an optimal state of health. The excess of macronutrients in the adipose tissues stimulates them to release inflammatory mediators such as tumor necrosis factor α and interleukin 6, and reduces production of adiponectin, predisposing to a pro-inflammatory state. Discover the latest research on inflammation and obesity here.

Gut Microbiota & Brain Aging

Gut microbiota composition has been implicated in neuroinflammatory responses, as well as brain aging and brain-aging related diseases like amyloid neuropathies. Here is the latest research.

Cardiovascular Inflammation

Inflammation plays a significant role in the development of cardiovascular diseases, an understanding of these endogenous processes is critical for evaluating the risks and potential treatment strategies. Discover the latest research on cardiovascular inflammation here.

Tight Junctions

Tight junctions are multiprotein junctional complexes whose general function is to prevent leakage of transported solutes and water and seals the paracellular pathway. Discover the latest research on tight junctions here,

Inflammatory Bowel Disease

Inflammatory bowel diseases (IBD), Crohn’s disease and ulcerative colitis, arise due to chronic inflammation of the gastrointestinal tract. Here is the latest research.

Human Microbiome

The human microbiome refers to the collection of genomes of all the microorganisms inside the human body and on the surface. Discover the latest research on the human microbiome here.

Metabolic Syndrome

Metabolic syndrome is characterized by obesity, insulin resistance, dyslipidemia and hypertension. It significantly increases the risk for cardiovascular and disease and type 2 diabetes. Increasing prevalence has been associated with the increasing rates of obesity worldwide. Here is the latest research on the metabolic syndrome.

Microbes: Cholesterol & Bile Acid

The intestinal microbiome is responsible for metabolism of bile acids and generation of the bile acid pool. Discover the latest research on Microbes: Cholesterol & Bile Acid.

Obesity & CV Disease

Obesity is becoming a major health concern and epidemic worldwide. It is regarded as a systemic, low-grade inflammatory state and has been linked to several diseases, one of major importance is cardiovascular diseases. Here is the latest research on obesity and cardiovascular diseases.

Gut & Phospholipid Metabolism

Phospholipids are the major component of cell membranes. This feed focuses on the role of gut microorganisms in phospholipid metabolism.

Gut Microbiota & Brain In Aging

Gut microbiota composition has been implicated in neuroinflammatory responses, as well as brain aging and brain-aging related diseases like amyloid neuropathies. Here is the latest research.

Metastatic Malignancy Treatments

Treatment of metastatic cancers depends on the type of cancer and the severity of the disease. The regime often includes medications such as chemotherapy or hormone therapy, but may also include immunotherapy, radiation therapy, surgery or a combination. Discover the latest research on metastatic cancer treatments here.
