0001793 Expected /Beneficial bacteria make up a significant portion of the total microflora in a healthy & balanced GI tract. These beneficial bacteria have many health-protecting effects in the GI tract including manufacturing vitamins, fermenting fibers, digesting proteins and carbohydrates, and propagating antitumor and anti-inflammatory factors. Clostridia are prevalent flora in a healthy intestine. Clostridium spp. should be considered in the context of balance with other expected… Expand


Factors predisposing to urinary tract infections in children
Adherence stimulates the inflammatory response by activation of cytokines such as interleukin-1, -6, and -8, which stimulate the production of intercellular adhesion molecule, which by leukocyte adhesion causes migration of cells to the site of infection to counteract it. Expand
Saccharomyces boulardii Stimulates Intestinal Immunoglobulin A Immune Response to Clostridium difficileToxin A in Mice
Saccharomyces boulardii is a nonpathogenic yeast that protects against antibiotic-associated diarrhea and recurrent Clostridium difficile colitis and may be an important mechanism for S. boulARDii-mediated protection against diarrheal illnesses. Expand
Stimulation of secretory IgA and secretory component of immunoglobulins in small intestine of rats treated withSaccharomyces boulardii
One of the mechanisms by which S. b.b. exerts its immunoprotective effect in the gastrointestinal tract is a stimulation of the intestinal secretion of s-IgA and of the secretory component of immunoglobulins, which is suggested to be due to an increase in enterocyte turnover rate. Expand
Diagnostic accuracy of fecal calprotectin assay in distinguishing organic causes of chronic diarrhea from irritable bowel syndrome: a prospective study in adults and children.
Fecal calprotectin assay is an accurate marker of IBD in both children and adult patients, and Diagnostic accuracy is higher in children. Expand
Selected indigestible oligosaccharides affect large bowel mass, cecal and fecal short-chain fatty acids, pH and microflora in rats.
Dietary incorporation of fermentable, indigestible oligosaccharides, by providing SCFA, lowering pH, and increasing bifidobacteria, may be beneficial in improving gastrointestinal health. Expand
Effects of short-chain fatty acids on human rectosigmoid mucosal colonocyte brush-border enzymes.
Short-chain fatty acids produced by bacterial fermentation of dietary fiber may provide a tonic stimulus to colonocyte differentiation that contributes to the protective effect of fiber against colorectal malignancy and may have different effects on human colonic mucosal differentiation. Expand

Data is presented suggesting that maintenance of gut mass and barrier function to bacteria via dietary manipulation may be essential to ensure host survival during critical illness. Expand
Fermentability of various fiber sources by human fecal bacteria in vitro.
It may be possible to select fiber sources capable of supporting stipulated amounts of both total and individual SCFA production in the human colon. Expand
Rectal irrigation with short-chain fatty acids for distal ulcerative colitis
Colon cells from patients with ulcerative colitis utilize short-chain fatty acids inefficiently and may be exposed to decreased concentrations of these compounds. To test whether irrigation of theExpand

It is suggested that malnourished children have a significantly lower urinary sIgA than eutrophic children after nutritional rehabilitation, and develop local immunity with a significant increase in sIGA. Expand
