'We found that specific types of high-fat diets are associated with increased tumour formation in a mouse model of intestinal
cancer,' said John Lambris, researcher at the University of Pennsylvania in the study published in the journal Molecular Cancer Research.
The pairing of biology and engineering allows scientists to recreate an intestinal
lining that matches that of a patient with a specific intestinal
disease, without performing invasive surgery to obtain a tissue sample.
The team showed that it is not the intestinal
bacteria themselves, but rather their metabolites which affect the immune system and therefore have a knock-on effect on autoimmune diseases such as rheumatoid arthritis.
Number of bacterial biomass isolated from peritoneal fluid in cattle suffering from intestinal
obstruction at time of surgery, at twenty four hours and forty eight hours after surgery was [10.sup.4-4.sup.25], [10.sup.4-4.5] and [10.sup.3.0-3.5] CFU/ml of peritoneal fluid, respectively.
The collected data were yearly classified to determine the intestinal
parasitic infections per years.

Cells that line the intestinal

The study looked at the prevalence of human intestinal
parasites in cockroaches and its attendant public health importance in 120 households comprising three different housing types in Lagos metropolis.
lymphangiectasia (PIL) is a seldom disease manifested by extensive and large intestinal
lympatic vessels resulting in lymph fluid loss into the lumen and responsible for serious hypoalbuminemia and therefore manifest generalized edema (2).
Since its creation in 2014, Valbiotis has made the intestinal
microbiota a strong axis of its R and D strategy for the prevention of metabolic diseases.
obstruction involves a partial or complete blockage of the bowel that results in the failure of the intestinal
contents to pass through.
"Understanding how fasting improves overall health, including the role of adult stem cells in intestinal
regeneration, in repair, and in aging, is a fundamental interest of my laboratory."
In order to understand the role that bacteria in the gut may play in atherosclerosis, the researchers examined blood levels of metabolic products of the intestinal
