Shared Notes


  • [1.2
    - Bifidobacterium infantis has been shown to elevate tryptophan levels in blood plasma and thus influence central serotonin transmission
  • [1.3
    - In breastfed infants given Bifidobacterium infantis EVC001, which expresses all HMO-utilization genes, intestinal T helper 2 (Th2) and Th17 cytokines were silenced and interferon β (IFNβ) was induced.
    - Fecal water from EVC001-supplemented infants contains abundant indolelactate and B. infantis-derived indole-3-lactic acid (ILA) upregulated immunoregulatory galectin-1 in Th2 and Th17 cells during polarization, providing a functional link between beneficial microbes and immunoregulation during the first months of life
  • - B. infantis is commonly found in breastfed infants in countries where incidence of immune-mediated disorders is low.
