A Simple Fecal Bacterial Marker Panel for the Diagnosis of Crohn ’s Disease

Conclusions: A combination of fecal Fn and Fp was identified as a valuable marker for CD diagnosis. A CD bacterial marker panel may provide a simple noninvasive approach to screen for CD.

Density of Musashi‑1‑positive stem cells in the stomach of patients with irritable bowel syndrome. Mol Med Rep. 2020 Aug 04;: Authors: El-Salhy M, Hausken T, Hatlebakk JG Abstract Irritable bowel syndrome (IBS) affects ~12% of the global population. Although the etiology of IBS is not completely understood, several factors are known to serve a pivotal role in its pathophysiology, including genetic factors, diet, the intestinal microbiota, gastrointestinal endocrine cells and low‑grade inflammation. Musashi‑1 is expressed by stem cells and their early progeny, and is used as a stem cell marker. ...

Protective effect of Gloeostereum incarnatum on ulcerative colitis via modulation of Nrf2/NF‑κB signaling in C57BL/6 mice. Mol Med Rep. 2020 Aug 05;: Authors: Li X, Liu X, Zhang Y, Zhang Y, Liu S, Zhang N, Li Y, Wang D Abstract Chronic non‑specific inflammatory cell infiltration of the colon is generally considered to be the cause of ulcerative colitis (UC). Gloeostereum incarnatum (GI), a fungus rich in amino acids and fatty acids, exhibits a variety of biological functions. In the present study, GI was identified to contain 15 fatty acids, 17 amino acids and 11 metallic elements. ...

Conclusions: Lung cancer patients after chemotherapy have a high resistance to commonly used antimicrobial drugs, so it is necessary to detect the resistance of pathogenic microorganisms in clinical practice. The strains carried by patients with lung cancer without pulmonary infection during chemotherapy can isolate type I integrons, suggesting that the spread of drug resistance at gene level should be closely detected.

Abstract This review presents the results of a study into the offering of rapid microbial detection assays to the Irish dairy industry. At the outset, a consultation process was undertaken whereby key stakeholders were asked to compile a list of the key microorganisms of interest to the sector. The resultant list comprises 19 organisms/groups of organisms divided into five categories: single pathogenic species (Cronobacter sakazakii, Escherichia coli and Listeria monocytogenes); genera containing pathogenic species (Bacillus, Clostridium, Listeria, Salmonella; Staphylococcus); broad taxonomic groupings (Coliforms,...

Authors: Pettersson N, Kragsbjerg F, Hamrin A, Bergman S, Forsblad-d'Elia H, Karling P Abstract BACKGROUNDS/AIMS: Musculoskeletal symptoms are common in patients with ulcerative colitis (UC), but no study has compared the prevalence of chronic pain to controls from a general population. METHODS: Patients with UC (n = 1164) and controls (n = 3867) were sent questionnaires comprising demography, history of pain, pain localization and UC patients' Patient-Simple Clinical Colitis Activity Index. Chronic regional pain (ChRP) and chronic widespread pain (ChWP) were defined as having pain f...
