tarmens stamceller er resistente for kemoterapi æææThe intestine has a reservoir of stem cells that are resistant to chemotherapyThe intestine has a high rate of cellular regeneration due to the wear and tear originated by its function degrading and absorbing nutrients and eliminating waste. The entire cell wall is renewed once a week approximately. This explains why the intestine holds a large number of stem cells in constant division, thereby producing new cell populations of the various types present in this organ.ææææææ
tarmbakteirer ændrer individets adfærd – i mus æææIntestinal bacteria alter gut and brain function, study showsæææThe goal of a new study was to explore whether fecal microbiota from human IBS patients with diarrhea has the ability to influence gut and brain function in recipient mice. Using fecal transplants, researchers transferred microbiota from IBS patients with or without anxiety into germ-free mice. The mice went on to develop changes both in intestinal function and behavior reminiscent of the donor IBææææææ
tarmbakterier – immunsystemet skal lære at tolerere dem æææImmunology: Live and let liveIn order to maintain the microflora in the gut, the immune system must be taught to tolerate foreign bacteria. Researches have now shown how immune surveillance cells are educated to perform this task.ææææææ
tarmbakterier har betydning for søvn æææDietary prebiotics improve sleep, buffer impacts of stress, says studyæææNew research suggests that lesser-known gut-health promoters called prebiotics — which serve as food for good bacteria inside the gut — can also have an impact, improving sleep and buffering the physiological impacts of stress.ææææææ

tarmbakterier æææFrom mice, clues to microbiome's influence on metabolic diseaseæææThe community of microorganisms that resides in the gut, known as the microbiome, has been shown to work in tandem with the genes of a host organism to regulate insulin secretion, a key variable in the onset of the metabolic disease diabetes, new research has found.ææææææ
tarmbakterier: kan ændring af tarmens bakterier medføre sygdom æææ[@https://www.sciencedaily.com/releases/2017/02/170216143847.htm|Biologists control gut inflammation by altering the abundance of resident bacteria]]æææNumerous human diseases, including inflammatory bowel disease, diabetes and autism spectrum disorders are linked to abnormal gut microbiomes, but an open question is whether these altered microbiomes are drivers of disease. A new study took aim at that question with experiments in zebrafish to dissect whether changes in the abundance of certain gut bacteria can cause intestinal inflammation.ææææææ
tarmanalyse med slugt minicameraæææ New alternative to colonoscopy is as easy as swallowing a pillThe patient ingests a capsule containing two miniature cameras on either end. As the capsule travels through the digestive tract, it captures images and wirelessly transmits them to a recorder the patient wears on a belt.ææææææ
om forbindelse mellem tarm og hjerne æææDo Heartburn Medications Really Cause Dementia?æææRecently we talked about the two-way connection between the brain and the small and large intestines (aka the gut). This week, Savvy Psychologist Dr. Ellen Hendriksen continues our journey throughææææææ
om at der opstår ændringer i tarmfloraen hos tvillinger, der er astronauter æææSpace changed gut bacteria of these twin astronautsæææResearchers studying the gut microbes of Scott and Mark Kelly, NASA astronauts and identical twin brothers, have found that spaceflight causes changes, but it’s not clear what the changes mean. The research is one of 10 NASA-funded projects studying the Kelly twins to learn how living in space for a long period of time—such as a mission to Mars—affects the human body.ææææææ
