Antibiotic-induced reduction of gut microbial populations leads to an enrichment of nutrients and depletion of inhibitory metabolites, which enhances CRE growth.
Diabetes, glucose, and hypertension are only predictive in certain low-income countries. Our findings suggest that adiposity-related microbiota differences differ between low-to-middle-income compared to high-income countries.
This diagnostic study of adults in Asia evaluates the performance of 2 index scores in estimating clinical outcomes for individuals with nonalcoholic fatty liver disease.
A key advantage of underwater endoscopic mucosal resection is the rapid dissipation of thermal energy during the application of electrocautery for resection of polyps.
A proof-of-concept study shows that DNA-slurping bacteria can identify cancerous sequences, advancing hope of a gentler form of diagnostics.
The self-controlled Case Series Analysis using the UK CPRD investigated the association between vaccination against coronavirus disease 2019 (COVID-19) and inflammatory bowel disease (IBD) flare.
A retrospective study investigating the impact of palliative care medicine on the tumor microenvironment has found that patients with pancreatic cancer who were prescribed the benzodiazepine lorazepam while undergoing chemotherapy had shorter progression-free survival than those patients who did not receive the benzodiazepine.
In this study of people with IBD, we demonstrate that all-or-nothing behavior (being very active then needing to resting a while) and catastrophic thinking (making very negative assumptions about outcomes) both predict worsening in fatigue over time.
Doctors say test may diagnose childhood illnesses in less than an hour, helping quickly identify life-threatening infections
Ending long-term therapy of HBeAg-negative hepatitis B with NUC was believed to induce a functional cure. Data on this was very limited, until a new study.
The microbiome is crucial for immunity, metabolic homeostasis, and protection from pathogens. What about its role in haematological diseases?
Two recent studies look at the efficacy of mirikizumab and upadacitinib in ulcerative colitis and Crohn's disease. Can IBD patients benefit?
Many humans cannot tolerate cow's milk, yet the dairy industry is huge. Prof. Renneberg shares memories and histories about lactose intolerance.
Meditation is a millennia-old practice for training the mind and body. It also has a positive effect on physical and mental health. But what is the reason for this?
For a successful polypectomy, a good colonoscopy is the key. The procedure should only require one colonoscopy, but many undergo several. Improvement is much needed.
New studies link the gut microbiome to depressive disorders. This may result in a new therapeutic approach for affective disorder treatments.
A free, online decision-making algorithm helps physicians with diagnosis, evaluation and treatment for coeliac disease management in pediatrics.
A long-term study of 20,000 people with type 2 diabetes reported that long-term use of PPIs is associated with increased cardiovascular and mortality risks.
Tumour patients often suffer from malnutrition, as gastric cancers drain nutritional supplies. Research on this was limited until a new large-scale global study.
There was little data on whether neoadjuvant chemotherapy benefitted in advanced but localised colon cancer. This changed due to a recently published study.
