Shared Notes


  • [1.12
    - Excess levels of iron and zinc seems to promote the colonization of pathogenic bacteria in the gut, such as Clostridium difficile.
  • [1.9
    - Schizophrenia and autism incidence has been found to be higher in the C. difficile diseased population.
    - This association was further explained by a phenylalanine derivative synthesized and released by the same bacteria in the gut that is known to regulate catecholamine levels in the brain.
  • - Autism incidence has been found to be higher in the C. difficile diseased population.
  • [1.13
    - Weight loss was associated with impaired nutrient absorption and enrichment in Clostridioides difficile, which was consistent with a decrease in bile acids and was sufficient to replicate metabolic phenotypes in mice in a toxin-dependent manner.
