April 2012
Biomedical Market Newsletter;4/28/2012, Vol. 21, p1
The article focuses on a study, according to which the composition of the gut flora determine the way in which the body develops metabolic disorders such as diabetes, regardless of any genetic modification, gender, age or specific diet.

    Background: Interactions between the diet and intestinal microbiota play a role in health and disease, including obesity and related metabolic complications. There is great interest to use dietary means to manipulate the microbiota to promote health. Currently, the impact of dietary change on...

    We tested the hypothesis that changing the gut microbiota using pectic oligosaccharides (POS) or inulin (INU) differently modulates the progression of leukemia and related metabolic disorders. Mice were transplanted with Bcr-Abl-transfected proB lymphocytes mimicking leukemia and received either...

    Background: Astragalus possesses therapeutic effects for type 2 diabetes (T2D), while its action mechanisms remain to be elucidated. In view of the pathogenic associations between gut microbiota and T2D, we explored the effect of astragalus on gut-microbiota composition of T2D mice. Materials...
