More Evidence For Intestinal Origins Of Parkinson’s Disease

A theory that Parkinson’s disease can arise in the intestinal system and from there migrate to the brain has now gained support from new research[1]. Aarhus University investigators observed the disease migrate from the gut to the brain and heart of laboratory rats. Parkinson’s disease is characterised by slowly destroying the brain due to the […]

Proton Pump Inhibitor Drugs Can Trigger Allergies

Stomach-protecting drugs, especially so-called proton pump inhibitors or PPIs, correlate with subsequent prescriptions for anti-allergy medication, an Austrian study shows. Using quantitative prescribing data from Austria, the study, conducted by MedUni Vienna in collaboration with the Austrian Social Insurance Institutions, validates the finding of previous epidemiological and experimental studies that stomach-protecting drugs can intensify or […]

ALS Trajectory May Be Affected By Gut Microbes

Intestinal microbes, collectively termed the gut microbiome, may affect the course of amyotrophic lateral sclerosis (ALS), also known as Lou Gehrig’s disease, researchers at the Weizmann Institute of Science have shown in mice. Progression of an ALS-like disease was slowed after the mice received certain strains of gut microbes or substances known to be secreted […]
