Shared Reference Notes

  • [1.1
    - Mice colonized with IBS+A microbiota developed faster gastrointestinal transit and anxiety‐like behavior (longer step‐down latency) compared to mice with HC microbiota. - Saccharomyces boulardii administration normalized gastrointestinal transit and anxiety‐like behavior in mice with IBS+A microbiota. Step‐down latency correlated with colonic Trpv1 expression and was associated with altered microbiota profile and increased Indole‐3‐acetic acid (IAA) levels.
  • [1.2
    - Individuals with severe IBS consumed a higher proportion of food items that can be considered as low quality (“less healthy”) as part of their main meals. - IBS severity is associated with altered gut microbiota hydrogen function in correlation with microbiota enzymes involved in animal carbohydrate metabolism.
  • [1.3] [#Staphylococcus aureus
    - Staphylococcal bacterial infection and bacterial toxins can trigger an immune response that leads to the production of dietary-antigen-specific IgE antibodies in mice, which are limited to the intestine. - Following subsequent oral ingestion of the respective dietary antigen, an IgE- and mast-cell-dependent mechanism induced increased visceral pain. -This aberrant pain signalling resulted from histamine receptor H1-mediated sensitization of visceral afferents. - Injection of food antigens (gluten, wheat, soy and milk) into the rectosigmoid mucosa of patients with irritable bowel syndrome induced local oedema and mast cell activation.
  • [1.4
    - Streptococci and clostridia were associated with an increased risk. - Clostridium perfringens is a well-known enteric pathogen and streptococci have been previously associated with irritable bowel syndrome. - Demographic risk factors included a family history of irritable bowel syndrome and antibiotic use. - Half of those affected said that their parents or siblings had bowel disease, and 75% of those affected said they had taken antibiotics in the past year.
  • [1.5] [#Human milk oligosaccharides
    - Patients had a significant improvement from baseline to 12 weeks in total percentage of bowel movements. - Improvement was similar across IBS subtypes. Symptoms improved most in the first 4 weeks of intervention. - The most common side effects were mild gastrointestinal symptoms such as flatulence, abdominal pain and discomfort, and distension.
  • [1.6
  • [1.7
    - Irritable bowel syndrome patients had lower urinary Phosphatidyl choline acyl-alkyl C38:6, dopamine and p-hydroxybenzoic acid. - Levels of some urinary metabolites including histamine correlated significantly with irritable bowel syndrome symptom severity scores.

  • - #Purine starvation has been identified as a potential novel mechanism underlying IBS with lower fecal #Hypoxanthine abundance in IBS-C and IBS-D.
  • - increased #Tryptophan in the gut may lead to loosened stool, and #Tryptophan-related signaling may travel to the posterior insula and increase pain perception and emotional salience in IBS-D, thereby suggesting a “bottom-up” signaling direction.
  • [#Vitamin B6, #Vitamin D] - deficiency in levels of both vitamins D and B6 have emerged as causative factors in IBS symptoms pathogenesis.
  • [1.25] [#Fecal Microbiota Transplantation
    - Repeated FMT had a greater impact on symptoms and quality of life than a single FMT. - Administrating donor’s transplant to the small intestine had a higher efficacy, and led to long-term colonization of beneficial bacteria than administrating the donor’s transplant to the large intestine.
  • [1.26
    #Veillonella levels have been found to be higher in patients with irritable bowel syndrome
  • [1.27] [#Diabetes Type 2] [#Ruminococcus gnavus] [#High fibre diet

  • [#Diabetes Type 2] [#Ruminococcus gnavus] - #Tryptamine and phenethylamine derived from the R. gnavus-mediated catabolism on dietary amino acids impaired insulin sensitivity via activation of TAAR1-MAPK/ERK signaling pathway axis, thereby contributing to insulin resistance in gut dysbiosis-associated IBS and T2D.
  • [1.28
    - Bifidobacterium infantis seems to be effective in human studies with IBS patients by changing plasma proinflammatory to anti-inflammatory cytokine ratio.
  • [1.29

  • - Higher blood levels of l-#Arginine and endogenous methylarginines have also been linked to adult IBS
  • [#Nitric Oxide] - In the digestive system, NO serves as the primary inhibitory nonadrenergic and noncholinergic neurotransmitter. - NO released from nerve stimulation in the myenteric plexus causes smooth muscle relaxation and plays a critical role in regulating esophageal, gastric, and intestinal peristalsis. - NO may play a role in the pathogenesis of visceral hypersensitivity in IBS,
  • [#Stearate] - Stearates are also associated with intestinal permeability, which may explain their causal association with IBS.
  • [1.36
    - #Serotonin levels are increased in both patients with #Diarrhea predominant and #Constipation predominant IBS. - increased levels of 5-HT in patients with #Diarrhea predominant IBS in both fasting and fed conditions, whereas patients with #Constipation predominant IBS did not show increased levels of 5-HT after meal ingestion.

  • [1.37] [#Myristic acid
    - elevated concentrations of #Butyryl carnitine and tetradecanedioate are associated with heightened vulnerability to IBS, while increasing levels of #Stearate (18:0) exhibit a protective effect. - #Stearate (18:0), #Butyryl carnitine and tetradecanedioate can directly affect IBS independently of other metabolites.
  • - significant difference in #Stearic acid levels between IBS patients and healthy individuals. - diet enriched with #Stearic acid led to reduced concentrations of fecal #Secondary bile acids (SBA). - These SBA can impact intestinal function, including factors like intestinal peristalsis and mucosal permeability, which may have a key role in the mechanism of IBS
  • [1.38
    - 32.1% of IBS patients had subthreshold #Depression (SD), placing them at higher risk of developing major #Depression.
