80 million bacteria sealed with a kiss (12/8/2014)

As many as 80 million bacteria are transferred during a 10 second kiss, according to research published in the open access journal Microbiome. The study also found that partners who kiss each other at least nine times a day share similar communities of oral bacteria. ...> Full Article


Have our bodies held the key to new antibiotics all along? (11/2/2014)

As the threat of antibiotic resistance grows, scientists are turning to the human body and the trillion or so bacteria that have colonized us -- collectively called our microbiota -- for new clues to fighting microbial infections. They've logged an early success with the discovery of a new antibiotic candidate from vaginal bacteria, reports Chemical & Engineering News, the weekly newsmagazine of the American Chemical Society. ...> Full Article

Study suggests altering gut bacteria might mitigate lupus (10/29/2014)

Lactobacillus species, commonly seen in yogurt cultures, correlate, in the guts of mouse models, with mitigation of lupus symptoms, while Lachnospiraceae, a type of Clostridia, correlate with worsening, according to research published ahead of print in Applied and Environmental Microbiology. 'Our results suggest that the same investigation should be performed in human subjects with lupus,' says principal investigator Xin Luo of Virginia Tech, Blacksburg, VA. ...> Full Article



Gut bacteria, artificial sweeteners and glucose intolerance (10/13/2014)

Gut bacteria, artificial sweeteners and glucose intoleranceWeizmann Institute research shows that artificial sweeteners promote glucose intolerance in a surprising way: by changing the composition and function of the gut microbiota. ...> Full Article


What you eat and not just the number of calories, is a significant factor in diabetes risk (9/20/2014)

If you think losing weight is enough to prevent Type 2 diabetes, don't get your hopes up. A new research report in September 2014 issue of The FASEB Journal suggests that you don't have to be overweight to develop Type 2 diabetes. ...> Full Article


Diet affects men's and women's gut microbes differently (8/6/2014)

The microbes living in the guts of males and females react differently to diet, even when the diets are identical, according to a study by scientists from The University of Texas at Austin and six other institutions published this week in the journal Nature Communications. These results suggest that therapies designed to improve human health and treat diseases through nutrition might need to be tailored for each sex. ...> Full Article


Fecal transplants restore healthy bacteria and gut functions (6/29/2014)

Fecal microbiota transplantation -- the process of delivering stool bacteria from a healthy donor to a patient suffering from intestinal infection with the bacterium Clostridium difficile -- works by restoring healthy bacteria and functioning to the recipient's gut, according to a study published this week in mBio, the online open-access journal of the American Society for Microbiology. ...> Full Article


Feeding gut microbiota: Nutrition & probiotics are key factors for digestive health (3/22/2014)

A healthy and balanced diet, as well as probiotics, have been known to be helpful in preserving gastrointestinal health for quite a long time. But it is only recently that the underlying mechanisms have become somewhat clearer. A rapidly increasing body of knowledge promises to further clarify the effects of our daily food on the gut microbiota and to indicate more targeted applications of probiotics in the near future. ...> Full Article


More than just bacteria: The importance of microbial diversity in gut health and disease (3/21/2014)

The gut microbiota contains a vast number of microorganisms from all three domains of life, including bacteria, archaea and fungi, as well as viruses. These interact in a complex way to contribute towards both health and the development of disease -- interactions that are only now being elucidated thanks to the application of advanced DNA sequencing technology in this field. ...> Full Article

Certain probiotics could help women lose weight and keep it off, according to a recent study published in the British Journal of Nutrition by a team of researchers headed by Université Laval Professor Angelo Tremblay. ...> Full Article


How a versatile gut bacterium helps us get our daily dietary fiber (1/30/2014)

How a versatile gut bacterium helps us get our daily dietary fiberUniversity of British Columbia researchers have discovered the genetic machinery that turns a common gut bacterium into the Swiss Army knife of the digestive tract -- helping us metabolize a main component of dietary fiber from the cell walls of fruits and vegetables. ...> Full Article


Researchers have a nose for how probiotics could affect hay fever (12/6/2013)

Researchers have a nose for how probiotics could affect hay feverA study has shown that a daily probiotic drink changed how cells lining the nasal passages of hay fever sufferers reacted to a single out-of-season challenge. However, it did not lead to significant changes in hay fever symptoms, although this challenge test may not have accurately represented natural allergen exposure. ...> Full Article


Study links intestinal bacteria to rheumatoid arthritis (11/20/2013)

Researchers have linked a species of intestinal bacteria known as Prevotella copri to the onset of rheumatoid arthritis, the first demonstration in humans that the chronic inflammatory joint disease may be mediated in part by specific intestinal bacteria. The new findings by laboratory scientists and clinical researchers in rheumatology at NYU School of Medicine add to the growing evidence that the trillions of microbes in our body play an important role in regulating our health. ...> Full Article


The benefits of bacteria for gut health (10/29/2013)

Scientists from the Emory University School of Medicine in Atlanta, United States have shown that specific gut bacteria are beneficial for maintaining a healthy intestine in the fruit fly Drosophila and mice and also contribute to the overall health of these organisms. The findings, which are published today in The EMBO Journal, could have implications for the treatment of inflammatory bowel disease as well as allergic, metabolic and infectious disorders. ...> Full Article


How to achieve a well-balanced gut (8/22/2013)

Creating an environment that nurtures the trillions of beneficial microbes in our gut and, at the same time, protects us against invasion by food-borne pathogens is a challenge. A study published on Aug. 8 in PLOS Pathogens reveals the role of a key player in this balancing act. ...> Full Article


What are fructooliogosaccharides and how do they provide health benefits? (7/23/2013)

A new presentation at the 2013 Institute of Food Technologists Annual Meeting & Expo in Chicago focused on the health benefits of short-chain fructooliogosaccharides, which are low-calorie, non-digestible carbohydrates that can improve food taste and texture while aiding immunity, bone health and the growth and balance of important bacteria in the digestive track. ...> Full Article


Changing gut bacteria through diet affects brain function, study shows (6/11/2013)

Are bacteria making you hungry? (12/28/2012)

Over the last half decade, it has become increasingly clear that the normal gastrointestinal (GI) bacteria play a variety of very important roles in the biology of human and animals. Now Vic Norris of the University of Rouen, France, and coauthors propose yet another role for GI bacteria: that they exert some control over their hosts' appetites. Their review was published online ahead of print in the Journal of Bacteriology. ...> Full Article
