The effort to understand the induction process of these diseases is important as IBD is increasing worldwide, including in Brazil. The aim of this study was to develop an experimental antigen(More)
The efficiency of an ion exchange system coupled to a bioreactor to extract on-line inhibitory organic acids produced was evaluated. Batch fermentations without dialysis and fed-batch experiments with and without dialysis of Propionibacterium freudenreichii were conducted. It was possible to keep the propionic acid concentration in the reactor at a low(More)
The inappropriate immune response to foods, such as peanut, wheat and milk may be the basis in the pathogenesis of enteropathies like coeliac and Crohn disease, which present small intestinal malabsorption. A number of recent studies have utilized d-xylose absorption as an investigative tool to study small intestinal function in a variety of clinical(More)
The bioconversion of glucose and fructose to gluconic acid and sorbitol, respectively, by the enzymes glucose-fructose oxidoreductase (GFOR) and glucono-delta-lactonase (GL), contained in untreated cells of Zymomonas mobilis ATCC 29191, was investigated in batch runs with glucose plus fructose concentrations (S0) varying from 100 to 750 g l-1 in equimolar(More)
