Abstract The etiology of Crohn’s disease (CD), an autoimmune, inflammatory bowel disease (IBD) which affects approximately one million people in Europe, is still unclear. Nevertheless, it is widely accepted that CD could result from an inappropriate inflammatory response to intestinal microorganisms in a genetically susceptible host. Most studies to date have concerned the involvement of bacteria in disease progression. In addition to bacteria, there appears to be a possible link between the… Expand
Diagnosis and Management of Common Gastrointestinal Tract Infectious Diseases in Ulcerative Colitis and Crohn's Disease Patients
TLDR
A detailed review of the data focusing on the most common infections of the gastrointestinal tract in patients with IBD, including Clostridium difficile infections (CDI) and cytomegalovirus (CMV) is presented. Expand
Intestinal epithelial cells and T cells differentially recognize and respond to Candida albicans yeast and hypha
TLDR
Investigation of the influence of the two morphologies of C. albicans, yeast and hypha, on epithelial cells and T cells from IBD patients versus healthy controls provides evidence for glycan dependent and independent recognition ofC. Expand
Reappraisal of antibodies against Saccharomyces cerevisiae (ASCA) as persistent biomarkers in quiescent Crohn’s disease
TLDR
It is concluded that ASCA could be pointed as relevant biomarker of CD presentation and residual inflammation, even in clinical remission patients. Expand
The Role of Fungi in the Etiology of Multiple Sclerosis
TLDR
Though fungal infections have not been widely studied in MS, many lines of evidence are consistent with a fungal etiology, and future microbiome and serological studies should consider fungi as a possible risk factor for MS. Expand
Candidiasis: Predisposing Factors, Prevention, Diagnosis and Alternative Treatment
TLDR
An overview on predisposition factors, prevention, diagnosis and diagnosis of candidiasis is provided, highlighting alternative approaches for candidiasis treatment. Expand
Adherent invasive Escherichia coli (AIEC) strain LF82, but not Candida albicans, plays a profibrogenic role in the intestine
TLDR
It is demonstrated that AIEC strain LF82, but not C. albicans, may play a major profibrogenic role in the gut, and exacerbated fibrosis in DSS-treated mice. Expand
IL-9 and Mast Cells Are Key Players of Candida albicans Commensalism and Pathogenesis in the Gut
TLDR
The output of the IL-9/MC axis is highly contextual during Candida colonization and reveals how host immunity and the microbiota finely tune Candida behavior in the gut. Expand
Sampling of Candida albicans and Candida tropicalis by Langerin-positive dendritic cells in mouse Peyer's patches.
TLDR
This study is the first to identify a subset of PP DCs capable of sampling Candida species, including C. albicans and C. tropicalis, preferentially localized in a recently identified sub- population of Peyer's patch DCs distinguished by their expression of the C-type lectin receptor, Langerin. Expand
Significantly higher faecal counts of the yeasts candida and saccharomyces identified in people with coeliac disease
TLDR
Further research is required to understand the significance of Candida and Saccharomyces species in both the aetiology of CoeD and of persistent symptoms in this sub-group. Expand
Learning from other diseases: protection and pathology in chronic fungal infections
TLDR
It appears that the host tryptophan catabolic enzyme, indoleamine 2,3-dioxygenase 1 (IDO1) plays a dominant role in the interplay between tryptolysis by microbial communities, the host’s own pathway of metabolite production, and the activation of the aryl hydrocarbon receptor (AhR)/IL-22 axis, eventually impacting on mucosal immune homeostasis and host/fungal symbiosis.

The gut microbiota in inflammatory bowel disease.
TLDR
Despite the involvement of microorganisms in inflammatory processes, antibiotic therapy has generally been unsuccessful in IBD, and recent studies involving the use of probiotics, prebiotics and synbiotics suggest that there is potential for controlling these diseases through manipulation of the composition of the gut microbiota, and direct interactions with the gut immune system. Expand
Yeasts: Neglected Pathogens
TLDR
It has been revealed that the major oligomannose epitopes supporting ASCA are expressed by C. albicans in human tissues, suggesting that C.Albicans is the immunogen for ASCA. Expand
Candida albicans Colonization and ASCA in Familial Crohn's Disease
TLDR
CD patients and their first-degree HRs are more frequently and more heavily colonized by C. albicans than are controls and ASCAs correlate with C.Albicans colonization in HRs but not in CD. Expand
Lessons from the inflammasome: a molecular sentry linking Candida and Crohn's disease.
TLDR
A pathophysiological model is proposed whereby a defective NLRP3-coupled inflammasome can result in enhanced mucosal colonization of granuloma-provoking microorganisms, including C. albicans, precipitating the formation of Crohn's disease-associated inflammatory lesions. Expand
Gut Microbiota in Inflammatory Bowel Disease

TLDR
The author reviews recent studies of gut microbiota in IBD, particularly the importance of the gut microbiome in the pathogenesis of pediatric IBD and describes a condition of "dysbiosis" observed in patients with IBD. Expand
Microbial influences in inflammatory bowel diseases.

TLDR
Altered microbial composition and function in inflammatory bowel diseases result in increased immune stimulation, epithelial dysfunction, or enhanced mucosal permeability, which should lead to selective targeted interventions that correct underlying abnormalities and induce sustained and predictable therapeutic responses. Expand
High prevalence of adherent-invasive Escherichia coli associated with ileal mucosa in Crohn's disease.
TLDR
AIEC strains are associated specifically with ileal mucosa in CD, and the abilities of E. coli strains to invade epithelial cells and to survive and replicate within macrophages were assessed using the gentamicin protection assay. Expand
The genetics and immunopathogenesis of inflammatory bowel disease
TLDR
Current understanding of the genetics and immunopathogenesis of Crohn's disease and ulcerative colitis is discussed, with comparative analyses of gene associations between these two inflammatory bowel diseases revealing common and unique mechanisms of their immunopathy. Expand
Interactions Between Commensal Fungi and the C-Type Lectin Receptor Dectin-1 Influence Colitis
TLDR
It is shown that the mammalian gut contains a rich fungal community that interacts with the immune system through the innate immune receptor Dectin-1, which substantially expands the repertoire of organisms interacting with the intestinal immune system to influence health and disease. Expand
Alterations of the dominant faecal bacterial groups in patients with Crohn's disease of the colon
TLDR
Enterobacteria were observed significantly more frequently in CD than in health, and more than 30% of the dominant flora belonged to yet undefined phylogenetic groups, suggesting the biodiversity of the microflora remains high in patients with CD. Expand
