Gut-brain connection in individuals with autism CONFIRMED by scientific data

(Natural News) Gastrointestinal (GI) problems have always been a common occurrence in many patients with autism, yet the mechanisms behind this phenomenon are not fully understood. Studies have shown that around 70 percent of people with autism spectrum disorder (ASD) have a variant of gastrointestinal disorder, including gastroesophageal reflux disease (GERD) and gastritis. If left...

Authors: Li W, Zhou Y, Shang C, Sang H, Zhu H Abstract Background: Proton pump inhibitor (PPI) and other acid-suppressing drugs are widely used in the treatment of gastrointestinal ulcer, upper gastrointestinal bleeding, gastritis, and gastric cancer (GC). About 80% of GC patients receive acid suppression treatment. PPI suppresses the production of gastric acid by inhibiting the function of H+/K+-ATPase in gastric parietal cells and raises the pH value to achieve therapeutic purposes. Some studies have found that PPI had a certain antitumor effect in the proliferation and apoptosis of tumor cells. But the effects o...

Abstract Autism spectrum disorder (ASD) is defined by persistent deficits in social communication/interaction and stereotypic behaviors with many diagnosed persons experiencing a developmental regression at>1 year‑old. It was hypothesized that progressive childhood encephalopathy is an important etiological factor in ASD pathogenesis. This hypothesis‑testing study examined the relationship between diagnosed childhood encephalopathy and ASD. The Independent Healthcare Research Database is composed of de‑identified linked eligibility and claim healthcare records prospectively generated from the Florida Medi...

Abstract Preeclampsia is a dangerous hypertensive disorder of pregnancy with known links to negative child health outcomes. Here, we review epidemiological and basic neuroscience work from the past several decades linking prenatal preeclampsia to altered neurodevelopment. This work demonstrates increased rates of neuropsychiatric disorders [e.g., increased autism spectrum disorder, attention deficit hyperactivity disorder (ADHD)] in children of preeclamptic pregnancies, as well as increased rates of cognitive impairments [e.g., decreased intelligence quotient (IQ), academic performance] and neurological disease (e...

Abstract Genes that are mutated in Autism Spectrum Disorders (ASD) can be classified broadly as either synaptic or developmental. But what if this is a false distinction? A recent spate of publications has provided evidence for developmental mechanisms that rely on neural activity for proper cortical development. Conversely, a growing body of evidence indicates a role for developmental mechanisms, particularly chromatin remodeling, during learning or in response to neural activity. Here, we review these recent publications and propose a model in which genes that confer ASD risk operate in signal transduction netwo...

This study provides evidence showing that a combination of H. pylori infection and capsaicin consumption leads to gastric carcinogenesis mediated through interleukin-6 (IL-6) stimulation with an incidence rate of 50%. The anti-inflammatory role of DFMO highlights the injurious effect of inflammation in gastric cancer development and the need to reduce gastric inflammation for cancer prevention by inhibiting IL-6. Accordingly, preventive measures such as reduced capsaicin consumption, H. pylori clearance, and DFMO treatment may lessen gastric cancer incidence.

AbstractIn peer-mediated intervention (PMI), peers act as agents of intervention. Previous reviews in this area have not addressed the effectiveness of using PMI with children with autism who are minimally verbal. Following a systematic search, we reviewed 25 studies where PMI was used to increase communication in minimally verbal participants. The majority of these (n = 23) were single-case experimental design studies in settings that included preschools, elementary schools, and high schools. PMIs varied in the amounts of training offered to peers and the types of activities in which children engaged. Social...
