Evaluation of: Lyra A, Rinttilä T, Nikkilä J et al. Diarrhoea-predominant irritable bowel syndrome distinguishable by 16S rRNA gene phylotype quantification. World J. Gastroenterol. 15(47), 5936–5945 (2009). Irritable bowel syndrome (IBS) is a functional disorder of multifactorial origin. Recent interest has been directed to the potential role of intestinal microbiota in the pathophysiology and symptom generation of this syndrome. This hypothesis is supported by the evidence of an infectious… Expand
Dysbiosis in Ukrainian Children with Irritable Bowel Syndrome Affected by Natural Radiation
TLDR
The results indicated the population levels of microbiota such as Enterobacter, Enterococcus, Lactobacillus and Bifidbacterium in caecal contents in 61 subjects was significantly less than in control group, indicating alternation of the intestinal microbiota affected by ionizing radiation in children with clinical symptoms of irritable bowel syndrome.

Probiotics in irritable bowel syndrome: Where are we?
  • G. Barbara, C. Cremon, F. Azpiroz
  • Medicine
  • Neurogastroenterology and motility : the official journal of the European Gastrointestinal Motility Society
  • 2018
TLDR
This mini‐review addresses unresolved issues related to mechanisms through which probiotics may exert their beneficial effects, the biological, as well as clinical predictors of favorable outcomes in IBS and finally considers possible new directions for future studies. Expand

TLDR
Investigation of the intestinal microbiota affect ionizing radiation in children with clinical symptom irritable bowel syndrome indicated the population levels of microbiota such as Enterobacter,Enterococcus, Lactobacillus and Bifidbacterium in caecal contents in 61 subjects was significantly less than in control group. Expand
Irritable Bowel Syndrome: Pathophysiology, Management and Treatment
TLDR
Probiotics may exert their beneficial effects on IBS symptoms via preserving the gut microbiota, normalization of cytokine blood levels, improving intestinal transit time, decreasing small intestine permeability, and by treating small intestinal bacterial growth. Expand
Blastocystis Is Associated with Decrease of Fecal Microbiota Protective Bacteria: Comparative Analysis between Patients with Irritable Bowel Syndrome and Control Subjects
TLDR
The hypothesis that Blastocystis might be linked to the pathophysiology of IBS-C and intestinal flora imbalance is supported by quantification of 8 major bacterial groups from the enteric flora. Expand
Commensal bacteria: the link between IBS and IBD?
  • E. Quigley
  • Medicine, Biology
  • Current opinion in clinical nutrition and metabolic care
  • 2011
TLDR
It makes sense, given the size and complexity of the microbiota and its role in homeostasis, that the microbiome and its interactions with the host would play a role in the pathogenesis of IBS and IBD; sorting out the details has proven challenging but does offer new therapeutic avenues for both disorders. Expand
Influence of fermented milk products, prebiotics and probiotics on microbiota composition and health.
TLDR
To underpin the importance of bacteria in the gut, molecular mechanisms involved in the crosstalk between gut bacteria and the human host are described, and the impact of different nutritional concepts such as pre-, pro- and synbiotics on the gastrointestinal ecosystem and their potential health benefits are reviewed. Expand
Editorial: Toll-Like Receptor Expression in Irritable Bowel Syndrome: On the Alert for a Microbial Threat?
  • G. Barbara
  • Medicine
  • The American Journal of Gastroenterology
  • 2011
TLDR
The first evidence of increased expression of toll-like receptors (TLRs) in patients with IBS is provided, which holds promise for a better understanding of the role of microbiota and immune activation in the pathophysiology of IBS and also provides novel pharmacological targets for this common troublesome disorder. Expand
Alterations in the Colonic Microbiota in Response to Osmotic Diarrhea
TLDR
Changes in microbial community structure induced by osmotic diarrhea are profound and show similarities to changes observed in other GI diseases including IBD. Expand
Mechanisms Underlying Visceral Hypersensitivity in Irritable Bowel Syndrome
TLDR
This review will report on recent data on mechanisms involved in visceral hypersensitivity in IBS, with particular attention paid to peripheral mechanisms. Expand

Antiflagellin antibodies suggest infective participation in irritable bowel syndrome pathogenesis
TLDR
The authors demonstrated that, compared with healthy controls, antibodies against flagellin were recognized more frequently in patients with IBS, and this results support the hypothesis that a subset of IBS presents an immune activation with pathogenic features common with IBD. Expand
The fecal microbiota of irritable bowel syndrome patients differs significantly from that of healthy subjects.
TLDR
The study showed that fecal microbiota is significantly altered in IBS, and further studies on molecular mechanisms underlying these alterations are needed to elucidate the exact role of intestinal bacteria in the syndrome. Expand
Diarrhoea-predominant irritable bowel syndrome distinguishable by 16S rRNA gene phylotype quantification.
TLDR
Significant phylotype level alterations in the intestinal microbiotas of IBS patients were observed, further emphasizing the possible contribution of the gastrointestinal microbiota in IBS. Expand
Analysis of the Fecal Microbiota of Irritable Bowel Syndrome Patients and Healthy Controls with Real-Time PCR
TLDR
With these real-time PCR assays, quantitative alterations in the GI microbiota of IBS patients were found and increasing microbial DNA sequence information will further allow designing of new real- time PCR Assays for a more extensive analysis of intestinal microbes in IBS. Expand
Composition and temporal stability of gastrointestinal microbiota in irritable bowel syndrome--a longitudinal study in IBS and control subjects.
TLDR
The present study suggests that instability of intestinal microbiota may be involved in IBS, however, further studies are needed to associate the instability with specific IBS symptoms or with specific bacterial groups and species. Expand
The Effect of a Nonabsorbed Oral Antibiotic (Rifaximin) on the Symptoms of the Irritable Bowel Syndrome
TLDR
Whether the nonabsorbed antibiotic rifaximin is more effective than placebo in reducing symptoms in adults with IBS is determined. Expand
Abnormal intestinal motor patterns explain enteric colonization with gram-negative bacilli in late radiation enteropathy.
TLDR
Impaired motility emerges as a causal factor for gastrointestinal colonization with GNB, whereas hypochlorhydria facilitates unspecific gastric colonization. Expand
Antibodies to flagellin indicate reactivity to bacterial antigens in IBS patients
TLDR
In contrast to ASCA, PAB and p‐ANCA, antibodies against A4‐Fla2 and Fla‐X were found significantly more often in IBS patients, particularly in those with postinfectious IBS, compared to HC. Expand
New pathophysiological mechanisms in irritable bowel syndrome
TLDR
Initial evidence suggests the existence of changes in gut microflora, serotonin metabolism and a genetic contribution in IBS pathophysiology, which may aid a better understanding of the complex pathophys physiology of IBS and to develop new therapies. Expand
Postinfectious irritable bowel syndrome.
TLDR
A small but significant subgroup of patients with irritable bowel syndrome (IBS) report a sudden onset of their IBS symptoms after a bout of gastroenteritis, and some preliminary human data suggest this leads to excessive serotonin release from the mucosa. Expand
