Modulating the Gut Microbiome – the Role of Probiotics and Prebiotics
The human intestinal microbiota functions as an organ and is critical for immune and gastrointestinal system maturation, colonization resistance, modulation of immune responses, and nutritional needs. A balanced, diverse microbiota is essential for health. There are disorders in which the beneficial use of probiotics is documented including antibiotic-associated diarrhea, C. difficile-associated diarrhea, inflammatory bowel disease, irritable bowel disease, dysbiosis, urinary tract infections, allergies, atopic dermatitis, eczema, and lactose intolerance. As a complementary therapy, prebiotics increase the numbers and/or activities of healthful gut microbiota and support populations of healthful genera that are not available as probiotics. This presentation will provide the knowledge and tools needed to effectively use prebiotics and probiotics to enhance health. Learning objectives: 1. Understand the beneficial effects of the gastrointestinal microbiota on the development and function of the immune, gastrointestinal, and other organ systems, as well as the adverse effects that can occur secondary to microbiome disruption 2. Appreciate the mechanisms by which probiotics may confer benefit and the health conditions for which evidence exists to support their use 3. Learn the safety profile and potential risks of probiotic preparations and how to effectively select and dose probiotic formulas ----------------------------------------------------------------- Presented by Stephen Olmstead, MDAviva Romm, MD Stephen Olmstead, MD, graduated from the University of New Mexico with distinction in biology and chemistry.

Claire Fraser - The Human Gut Microbiome in Health and Disease
This lecture is part of the IHMC Evening Lecture series. https://www.ihmc.us/life/evening_lectures/ Human beings are colonized with a diverse collection of microorganisms that inhabit every surface and cavity of the body. This collection of microbes, known as the human microbiome, is made up of nearly one thousand different bacterial species and exists in a mutualistic relationship with us as its host. Indeed, we could not survive without our microbial partners. Claire M. Fraser, Ph.D. is Director of the Institute for Genome Sciences at the University of Maryland School of Medicine in Baltimore, MD. She has joint faculty appointments at the University of Maryland School of Medicine in the department of Medicine and Microbiology/Immunology. She helped launch the new field of microbial genomics and revolutionized the way microbiology has been studied. Until 2007, she was President and Director of The Institute for Genomic Research (TIGR) in Rockville, MD, and led the teams that sequenced the genomes of several microbial organisms, including important human and animal pathogens. Her current research is focused on characterization of the human gut microbiome in health and disease. Her work on the Amerithrax investigation led to the identification of four genetic mutations in the anthrax spores that allowed the FBI to trace the material back to its original source. She is one of the world’s experts in microbial forensics and the growing concern about dual uses – research that can provide knowledge and technologies that could be misapplied. Dr. Fraser has authored more than 300 publications, edited three books, and served on the editorial boards of nine scientific journals. Between 1997 and 2008, she was the most highly cited investigator in the field of microbiology and has been recognized for numerous awards. She has served on many advisory panels for all of the major Federal funding agencies, the National Research Council, the Department of Defense, and the intelligence community. In addition, she has contributed her time as a Board member for universities, research institutes, and other non-profit groups because of her commitment to the education of our next generation of scientists.

Using the Microbiome to Prevent, Diagnose and Treat Disease: Top 10 Medical Innovations 2017
Top 10 2017 Medical Innovations- 1/10 When it comes to life-saving potential and market opportunities, the gut is a gold mine. Trillions of bacteria making up communities in our body—the microbiome--are unlocking mysteries at a rapid pace as the market scrambles to address the possibilities. The crux of the discovery, made within the last 10 years, is that our microbes have a mind of their own. The chemicals they emit interfere with the way food is digested, medicine is deployed, and even how a disease progresses. Biotech companies once focused on the genomic market are pivoting to the potential of the microbiome to develop new diagnostics, new therapies, and “probiotic” products to prevent dangerous microbe imbalances. With the National Microbiome Initiative accelerating research and development, experts believe 2017 is the year the microbiome cements itself as the healthcare industry’s most promising and lucrative frontier.

3 Signs and Symptoms You Have Leaky Gut Syndrome
Repopulate your gut with good probiotics - learn more here https://www.truthnutra.com/floracil50-yt For over three decades, study after study has been published (several thousand articles exist to date) discussing our growing understanding of immunity, gut function and how modern diets and lifestyles negatively contribute to overall health through our digestive system. Medical researchers refer to this phenomenon as “Leaky Gut Syndrome.” (also known as “intestinal hyperpermeability”) So let’s take a look at… Is leaky gut real? What is Leaky Gut Syndrome? Having leaky gut is kind of like having the gates broken from your intestines to your bloodstream. Leaky gut symptoms are a consequence of intestinal tight junction malfunction. These tight junctions (TJ’s) are the gateway between your intestines and what is allowed to pass into the bloodstream. Tight junctions have a very precise job – they have to maintain the delicate balance between allowing vital nutrients to enter your bloodstream, while remaining small enough to prevent xenobiotics (disease-causing compounds from your diet or lifestyle) from passing out of your digestive system into the rest of your body. http://jn.nutrition.org/content/141/5/769.full Leaky gut presents a major problem, as the vast majority of your immune system is found in the gut. The result? A disruption of acute inflammation, a normal part of the immune response that serves to fight infection and disease, turns into chronic inflammation, which is at the root of most diseases. How serious is this? Well, according to a 2014 review of the facts and research about intestinal permeability (among other sources), the chronic condition of hyperpermeability is linked to: https://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/pmc/articles/PMC4253991/table/Tab6/ Gastric ulcers Infectious diarrhea Irritable Bowel Syndrome (IBS) Inflammatory bowel diseases (Crohn’s, ulcerative colitis) Celiac disease Esophageal and colorectal cancer Allergies Respiratory infections Acute inflammation conditions (sepsis, SIRS, multiple organ failure) Chronic inflammatory conditions (such as arthritis) Obesity-related metabolic diseases (fatty liver, Type II diabetes, heart disease) Autoimmune disease (lupus, multiple sclerosis, Type I diabetes and more) https://www.nature.com/articles/ncpgasthep0259 Parkinson’s disease https://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/pubmed/24898698 Chronic fatigue syndrome Obesity https://www.sciencedirect.com/science/article/pii/S0271531712001595 So with all this being said, how do you know whether or not you’re currently dealing with leaky gut? Here are the top 3 major signs and symptoms of leaky gut syndrome in men and women: Food sensitivities: Because of the onslaught of toxins that enter the bloodstream, the immune systems of people with intestinal hyperpermeability are on overdrive mass-producing various antibodies, which may make their bodies more susceptible to antigens in certain foods (especially gluten and dairy). In studies involving rats and human children, leaky gut and food allergies have been linked. https://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/pubmed/25543046 https://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/pubmed/23909601 This is one of the most common leaky gut symptoms. Inflammatory Bowel Disease - Researchers from Hungary uncovered in 2012 that elevated gut permeability is oftentimes localized to the colon in people suffering from irritable bowel syndrome and ulcerative colitis. https://www.karger.com/Article/Abstract/333083 As far back as 1988, scientists suggested that Crohn’s disease may be more of a risk for people with leaky gut. https://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/pmc/articles/PMC1434087/ A small study (observing 12 patients) discovered that zinc supplementation may help resolve the tight junction dysfunction in these cases, although more research is required on a larger scale to confirm these results. https://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/pubmed/11383597 Thyroid problems - One of the autoimmune diseases that leaky gut syndrome may directly affect is Hashimoto’s disease. http://www.discoverymedicine.com/Kouki-Mori/2012/11/27/does-the-gut-microbiota-trigger-hashimotos-thyroiditis/ Also known as “chronic thyroiditis,” this disorder is displayed with hypothyroidism (low thyroid function), impaired metabolism, fatigue, depression, weight gain and a host of other concerns.

RHR: Is a Disrupted Gut Microbiome at the Root of Modern Disease? with Dr  Justin Sonnenburg
In this episode of Revolution Health Radio (RHR) we discuss “Is a Disrupted Gut Microbiome at the Root of Modern Disease?—with Dr. Justin Sonnenburg." Dr. Justin Sonnenburg makes a powerful argument for viewing our microbiota as the control center for human biology—that our microbiota are not just impacting digestion and absorption, but have systemic impacts on our immune system, our metabolism, and our brain chemistry. We discuss the latest research on the microbiome, the strong connection between low microbiome diversity and modern Western diseases, and how people can support their own microbiome health. In this episode, we cover: 03:25 Just how many microbial cells are there? 11:38 What are the primary functions of the microbiota? 15:59 The connection between microbiota and chronic disease 27:14 How do you define a healthy microbiota? 30:36 The connection between low microbial diversity and disease 35:24 Can we manipulate our microbiota? 39:40 What inspired you to write your book?

Companies Pursue Diagnostics that Mine the Microbiome
Companies Pursue Diagnostics that Mine the Microbiome:screening, microbiology, inflammatory bowel disease, inflammation, diagnostics and bacteria. gut bacteria:https://youtu.be/j9KXGOQOd4A Companies Pursue Diagnostics that Mine the Microbiome Tests so far typically screen for risky patterns that may augment traditional types of clinical data. If we think of our bodies as walking, talking ecosystems, it stands to reason that microbial collections may change in response to the foods we eat and places we live. Similarly, disease-related shifts in the human environment are expected to influence our resident microbes, even if those microbes themselves don’t cause the changes. Investigators and investors are increasingly banking on the possibility that microbes finding safe harbor in human habitats may be useful for detecting disease—from acute infections to chronic inflammatory conditions. “It makes sense that the microbiome could be an indicator of lots of different things going on in the body,” said University of California, Davis, evolution and ecology researcher Jonathan Eisen, whose lab studies microbial contributions to ecosystem health. “The community of microbes is a pretty good readout of availability of carbon and nitrogen and activation of the immune system and oxygen levels and moisture levels and temperature. All of those things, pretty confidently, we know affect microbial communities,” he explained. From that point of view, it’s not all that big a leap to think that monitoring microbial community members, genes, or outputs—be they proteins or metabolites—could offer methods for measuring disease status or perhaps predicting individuals’ responses to specific treatments. A number of companies are working on developing tools to do just that. One intense focus on using gut microbes in diagnostics is to track inflammatory bowel diseases (IBD) such as Crohn’s or ulcerative colitis, because the inflammation that marks those conditions may dramatically alter the types of microbes that survive and thrive in the large intestine. Past studies have unraveled some of the most telling gut microbiome features in IBD — and they go well beyond the presence or absence of specific bugs in the gut. Individuals with these and other maladies often have lower-than-usual gut microbe diversity and decreased levels of harmless, or “commensal,” microbes as well, providing the potential for multiple test outcomes to explore. San Francisco-based uBiome, for instance, offers a “SmartGut” test that involves targeted sequencing of a 16S ribosomal RNA bacterial barcode gene to measure microbial composition. That test is performed in a CLIA-certified and College of American Pathologists-accredited lab and reports on microbial patterns that have been linked to conditions ranging from IBD to type 2 diabetes to obesity. (Eisen recently stepped down the company’s scientific advisory board to avoid potential conflicts with another project he’s pursuing.) The firm’s website suggests the approach has high accuracy when it comes to profiling the gut microbes it targets—boasting 99 percent sensitivity for picking them up, on average, and 100 percent specificity for the targeted bugs. Where it gets trickier is translating such patterns into clinical clues. To that end, uBiome researchers published a recent PLOS ONE study aimed at defining the normal variability in the gut microbiome. Using a 16S rRNA sequencing strategy similar to that underlying the SmartGut test, they profiled stool samples from nearly 900 healthy individuals to track gut levels of 28 gut microbial species or genera, including five pathogens, 20 commensal organisms, and three species that are believed to be beneficial. They also outlined the associations documented between these microbes and 13 disease types. “The combinatorial information of which organisms are outside of the healthy range can be used by a physician to augment a treatment plan,” they wrote, noting that the test panel considered in the PLOS ONE paper “reports on some microorganisms that are not usually interrogated in the clinic but provide additional insight into the overall gut health of a patient in a clinical setting.”...

Seminar: "Gut microbiota for health: lessons of a metagenomic scan" (Joël Doré, PhD))
Watch the presentation on Slideshare: http://www.slideshare.net/VHIR/j-dore-vhir-19112013 VHIR seminar led by Joel Doré. Research Director. Institut National de la Recherche Agronomique (INRA). Jouy-en-Josas, France Abstract: The human intestinal tract harbours a complex microbial ecosystem which plays a key role in nutrition and health. Interactions between food constituents, microbes and the host organism derive from a long co-evolution that resulted in a mutualistic association. Current investigations into the human faecal metagenome are delivering an extensive gene repertoire representative of functional potentials of the human intestinal microbiota. The most redundant genomic traits of the human intestinal microbiota are identified and thereby its functional balance. These observation point towards the existence of enterotypes, i.e. microbiota sharing specific traits but yet independent of geographic origin, age, sex etc.. It also shows a unique segregation of the human population into individuals with low versus high gene-counts. In the end, it not only gives an unprecedented view of the intestinal microbiota, but it also significantly expands our ability to look for specificities of the microbiota associated with human diseases and to ultimately validate microbial signatures of prognostic and diagnostic value in immune mediated diseases.

10 Signs and Symptoms  that You Have an Unhealthy Gut (leaky gut)
10 Signs and Symptoms You Have an Unhealthy Gut. A properly functioning digestive system is essential for your overall health. The gastrointestinal tract is lined with bacteria that aid in performing many important functions good bacteria in your body. These good bacteria help in boosting immunity, producing the feel-good brain chemical serotonin, converting food into energy, and disposing of foreign substances and toxins from the body, to name a few. Most people are not even aware that something’s wrong with their gut bacteria, so the problem goes untreated. Knowing the signs of an unhealthy gut will help you identify and address the issue. Please note: The content provided below and probiotics elsewhere on this video is not intended nor should it be construed as providing professional medical or nutritional advice. Do not rely on information provided on this video for your health problems. instead, consult a qualified medical professional for advice. And here are 5 Common Signs of Cancer in Men that you should to know; 01:02 Digestive Issues. 02:05 Vitamin and Mineral Deficiencies. 03:09 Lack of Energy. 04:07 Inflammation Related to Autoimmune Diseases. 05:06 Skin Problems. 06:03 Onset of Diabetes. 07:02 Stubborn Weight. 08:01 Bad Breath. 09:08 Mood Issues. 10:01 Difficulty Sleeping. Bloating, gas, cleaning the gut diarrhea or irregular bowel movements are a clear sign of an imbalance in gut bacteria. As your gut bacteria work to digest and break down food, it’s normal for gases to be released in the process. But severe gas, bloating or burping can be due to an unbalanced digestive tract. Excessive gas can collect in the gastrointestinal tract due to poorly digested foods, which are fermented by bacteria in the large intestine where the gas is produced. Digestive discomforts may be especially severe after eating carbohydrate-rich meals. Acid reflux, inflammatory bowel disease, irritable bowel disease and colitis have all been linked to an imbalance in the gut’s microbiome. The primary role of gut health the digestive system is to break down the food you eat and supply nutrients to all of the body’s cells. These nutrients are used by the cells for growth, repair and energy. When the digestive process is insufficient due to an imbalance of gut bacteria, the body’s absorption of nutrients is impaired. Over time, this can cause nutritional deficiencies. Common deficiencies due to an unhealthy gut include inadequate levels of vitamins D, K, B12 and B7 as well as magnesium. Your doctor can help determine if you are deficient in any nutrients and whether it is likely due to an unhealthy gut or some other underlying condition. If you find it hard to make it leaky gut through the day even when you’ve had enough sleep and had a healthy meal, it may be a sign of an unhealthy gut. Metabolism is a complex process that requires the chemical breakdown of food for fuel, which is done by microbes in the intestines. An imbalance of gut bacteria can prevent your body from absorbing the nutrients it needs from foods, leaving you feeling tired all the time. Plus, it lets toxins pass through the intestinal walls into the digestive system, which in turn can affect your energy level. Moreover, unhealthy gut bacteria lead to an increase in certain inflammatory compounds called cytokines, which are directly associated with fatigue. Gut health is also connected to autoimmune diseases like rheumatoid arthritis, leaky gut syndrome Crohn’s disease and lupus. An imbalance of gut bacteria may trigger the autoimmune response that leads to inflammation in people with autoimmune diseases. A 2013 study published in eLife found that people with rheumatoid arthritis were much more likely to have a bug called Prevotella copri (P. copri) in their intestines as compared to people who did not have the disease. The study also showed that the presence of P. copri is linked to loss of healthy microbes in the gut. The loss of these microbes could contribute to other symptoms or related health conditions. Well, If you experience any of the following 5 Common Signs of Unhealthy Gut that I mentioned above, you should not ignore it. It’s important to tell your health care provider to have them checked by your doctor. So that the cause can be found and treated, if needed. Being proactive can lead to earlier treatment and a better outlook. Thank you for watching "5 Common Signs of Unhealthy Gut" Early Detection Could Save Your Life Longer.

How The Gut Microbiota Affects Our Health with Dr. Erica & Dr. Justin Sonnenburg
Dr. Justin Sonnenburg is an associate professor of microbiology and immunology at Stanford and Dr. Erica Sonnenburg is a senior research scientist in the Sonnenburg lab where they the research many aspects the interaction between diet with the 100 trillion or so bacteria in the gut (specifically the colon) and how this impacts the health of the host (which in this case is a laboratory research mouse). In this episode we discuss the pivotal role fiber plays in fueling good bacteria in the gut to produce compounds that regulate the immune system including increasing the number of T regulatory cells, which are specialized types of immune cells that keep the immune system in check and prevent autoimmune responses, and how these compounds also increase other types of blood cells in the body in a process known as hematopoiesis. We also talk about how the lack of fiber in the typical American diet actually starves these good bacteria of their food. This has an effect not only on the immune system and autoimmune diseases but also results in the breakdown of the gut barrier, which leads to widespread inflammation and inflammatory diseases. Lastly, in this podcast, Dr. Erica Sonnenburg talks about how C-sections, have a negative effect on the infant’s gut due to the lack of exposure to bacteria present in the mother’s vaginal canal, and how the use of formula deprives the infant not only from the good bacteria present in Mom’s gut but also from special carbohydrates in breast milk that are good for the infant gut flora known as HMOs or human milk oligosaccharides. ▶︎ Get the show notes! https://www.foundmyfitness.com/episodes/the-sonnenburgs Links related to the Sonnenburgs: ▶︎ http://sonnenburglab.stanford.edu/ ▶︎ http://www.facebook.com/thegoodgut ▶︎http://www.amazon.com/gp/product/1594206287/ref=as_li_tl?ie=UTF8&camp=1789&creative=9325&creativeASIN=1594206287&linkCode=as2&tag=foun06-20&linkId=IOKAGDTRCL47XQN6 Links related to FoundMyFitness: ▶︎ Join my weekly newsletter: http://www.foundmyfitness.com/?sendme=nutrigenomics ▶︎ Crowdfund more videos: http://www.patreon.com/foundmyfitness ▶︎ Subscribe on YouTube: http://www.youtube.com/subscription_center?add_user=foundmyfitness ▶︎ Subscribe to the podcast: http://itunes.apple.com/us/podcast/foundmyfitness/id818198322 ▶︎ Twitter: http://twitter.com/foundmyfitness ▶︎ Facebook: http://www.facebook.com/foundmyfitness ▶︎ Instagram: http://www.instagram.com/foundmyfitness

Medical Frontiers - Gut Flora Enhancing Immunity [1080p]
The "gut flora", an ecosystem of bacteria and other microorganisms in the intestines, plays an important role in human health. Researchers say improving the balance of the gut flora can boost our immunity. In Japan, medical experts give premature babies bifidobacteria to strengthen their weak immune systems. Japanese hospitals give patients drinks rich in so-called "good" bacteria to fight infections after cancer surgery. We'll also share some exercises to keep the intestines in good shape.

Gut Bacteria, Cholesterol & Heart Disease w/ Dr. Mark Houston
Access the show notes: http://highintensityhealth.com/drhouston 5:01 Advanced Lipid Testing: In the U.S., we tend to think that if we get lipids/fats under control, no one will have heart attacks. Measuring only blood cholesterol ignores other important risk factors. The methodologies that measures lipids are not done with advanced testing. Doctors perform the obsolete total quantity testing for HDL, LDL, cholesterol, and triglycerides; but particle size, particle number and, in some cases, the functionality of HDL, with reverse cholesterol transport. 6:35 Big LDLs and Small LDLs. It makes a difference: Heart disease and heart attack risk is driven by the number of LDL particles and the size of LDL particles. If LDL particles are small and in great number, they slip through the lining of the vascular system and cause inflammation, oxidative stress, and immune dysfunction. It creates a plaque formation with ruptures and causes a heart attack. Think of the lining of the vascular system as the net on a tennis court. A tennis ball won’t go through the net, but a golf ball will. The tennis ball is a large LDL and a golf ball is a small LDL. A lot of golf balls going through the net, begins the inflammatory process. Generally, the tennis ball, larger LDL is not a problem. 8:10 HDL is the Cleanup Crew: If you have a lot of golf balls on the wrong side of the net, you might be able to fill your wheelbarrow with them in one trip. If you only have a bucket, you might have to make multiple trips to pick up the golf balls. If your wheelbarrow has a flat tire or broken handle, you still won’t be able to remove very many golf balls. You want your HDLs to be big and you want them to function well. You want a lot of wheelbarrows and you want them operating optimally. 9:22 What Causes Dysfunctional HDL? It is most often caused by inflammation from any cause, but it could be from things like rheumatoid arthritis or chronic infection. Heavy metals could be the cause. Dysfunctional HDL can also be caused by poor micronutrient intake or poor macronutrient intake. When HDL is damaged, there is no oxidative defense, there is poor reverse cholesterol transport and there are none of the other activities that HDL does to prevent atherosclerosis. Basic lipid testing does not differentiate between adequately functioning HDL and poorly functioning HDL. Advanced lipid testing shows the various conditions and activities of HDL. 10:53 What Happens When Small LDL’s Get into Our Cardiovascular System? Small LDLs are more likely to be modified. Glucose can cause oxidation, inflammation, glycation, or acetylation of HDL. It is common in people who are diabetic or have insulin resistance, obesity, or metabolic syndrome. Small LDLs stick in the subendothelial layer and you cannot get them out. A type of white cell, called macrophages, moves into the layer below the endothelium because they love to eat small LDLs. They have no appetite control. They eat small LDLs until they burst. The mess literally ruptures into the subendothelial layer and even into the lumen, causing the area to clot, eventually creating a myocardial infarction/heart attack. 12:36 How Can We Stop the Golf Balls? There are 38 different mechanisms that you can use to interrupt the process of heart disease. Exercise and nutraceuticals are the keys. There is lycopene, from tomatoes and grapefruit, lipoic acid, N-acetylcysteine, resveratrol, berberine, red yeast rice, niacin, omega 3 fatty acids from cold water fish and many more. The Mediterranean diet with lots of extra virgin olive oil helps too. It is important to stay on a low carbohydrate diet. 15:06 Causes of Endothelial Dysfunction: Dr. Houston can list over 400 causes for ED. The top 5 that are typically talked about are blood pressure, lipid, diabetes, obesity and smoking. They cause insult to the endothelial lining, causing endothelial dysfunction. Dysfunction is related to inflammation, oxidative stress, immune dysfunction within the arteries, clotting and abnormal growth factors that make the arteries stiff and enlarges the heart, causing heart failure as well as heart attacks. 24:02 Poor Gut Health and Heart Disease: Gastrointestinal problems are directly linked to cardiovascular problems. You must clean up the diet and repair the gut to reduce metabolic endotoxemia after eating. This is actually low grade sepsis, producing a huge inflammatory response, oxidative stress, and immune dysfunction in the gut that is transported into the vascular system.

IMNow Gut - Microbiome episode 24
Did you know that your gut is host to ten's of trillions of micro-organisms which have a profound effect on your overall health, and even your emotions. This colony of bacteria is called your gut microbiota, and it can effect your ability to lose weight and can even lead to auto-immune disease. In this episode we'll visit with Dr. Todd LePine to discuss your gut microbiome, and what you should and should not do for overall gut health. Its an area of medical science that we are just now starting to understand, and we'll be covering it right here on Immortality Now.

Dan Littman (NYU / HHMI) 2: Shaping of Immune Responses by the Microbiota
https://www.ibiology.org/immunology/th17 Th17 cells are important in our protective immune response to bacteria and fungi. They also can exist, however, in a pathogenic form that causes autoimmune disease. In his first lecture, Dan Littman discusses the opposing roles of Th17 cells. They protect mucosal surfaces from infection with bacteria and fungi, but they can also cause autoimmune inflammation. Using a mouse model of autoimmunity called experimental autoimmune encephalitis (EAE), Littman and his lab have shown that there are two types of Th17 cells. Non-pathogenic Th17 cells are induced by the microbiota and protect barrier surfaces, while pathogenic Th17 cells are induced by the presence of IL-23, likely the result of inflammation elsewhere in the body. Both types Th17 cells secrete the cytokines IL-17A, IL-17F and IL-22, however, pathogenic Th17 cells also secrete interferon gamma (IFNγ) which induces further inflammation and autoimmune disease. In the last 10 years, several classes of innate lymphoid cells have been found to share similar cytokine profiles to Th17 cells and these cells appear to be another important layer in protecting surfaces in the gut and lung from infection. In his second talk, Littman explains that different commensal microbes in our gut elicit different T cell responses - either pathogenic or non-pathogenic. His lab is beginning to identify the pathogens and decipher the pathways that determines the host T cell response. This research has important clinical relevance since a cancer patient’s microbiota may help determine their response to chemotherapy. Microbiota that induce non-pathogenic Th17 cells are protective against autoimmunity but may decrease anti-tumor immunity, while microbiota that contribute to autoimmunity may enhance anti-tumor T cell responses. Speaker Biography: Dan Littman is the Helen and Martin Kimmel Professor of Molecular Immunology in the Department of Pathology and a professor in the Department of Microbiology at the Skirball Institute of Biomolecular Medicine of New York University School of Medicine. He is also an Investigator of the Howard Hughes Medical Institute. Littman discovered the excitement of science while he was an undergraduate student at Princeton University. He went on to receive his M.D. and Ph.D. from Washington University in St. Louis. As post-doc in Richard Axel’s lab at Columbia University, Littman isolated the genes for CD8 and CD4, molecules involved in T lymphocyte development. Littman then joined the faculty of the University of California, San Francisco where he was one of the first scientists to recognize that HIV infects T helper cells by binding to CD4. Since 1995, Littman has been based at NYU. Littman’s lab has continued to study the development and differentiation of T lymphocytes. They are interested in understanding how a normal protective immune response differs from a pathogenic response such as that found in inflammation and autoimmune disease. Currently, they are also investigating the importance of the microbiome in influencing immunity. Littman is a member of the National Academy of Sciences and a fellow of the American Academy of Arts and Science and the American Academy of Microbiology. His groundbreaking work has been recognized with many prizes including the 2004 New York City Mayor’s Award for Excellence in Science and Technology, the 2013 Ross Prize in Molecular Medicine, and the 2016 Vilcek Prize in Biomedical Science amongst others.

Could Autism Be Caused by Gut Microbes? | Dr. Emeran Mayer
Part of the rise in autism is due to better diagnosis, but Dr. Emeran Mayer thinks it's something in our environment, and within us, that has played a role in causing this increase. Mayer's latest book is "The Mind-Gut Connection: How the Hidden Conversation Within Our Bodies Impacts Our Mood, Our Choices, and Our Overall Health" (https://goo.gl/vKFPZt). Read more at BigThink.com: http://bigthink.com/admin/video_ideas/emeran-mayer-on-autism-and-microbiome Follow Big Think here: YouTube: http://goo.gl/CPTsV5 Facebook: https://www.facebook.com/BigThinkdotcom Twitter: https://twitter.com/bigthink Transcript - Autism is both a devastating problem and it’s still a puzzle largely what causes or what has been causing the dramatic increase in the prevalence of this disease in the last 40 years or so. So it’s almost like an exponential increase. Part of that is really due to better diagnosis and the diagnostic criteria. But a lot of people think that something in our environment has played a role in causing this increase. And it’s worldwide. It’s not just in North America. It’s in Asia, it’s in Europe. So something environmental. The genes, the genetic risk factors for autism have obviously always been there but something else must have triggered it. So some people think it’s something in the diet and that is possible. It could also be something what we do to our gut microbes. So the use of antibiotics, the obsession with keeping things more and more sterile from the day we’re born, you know, throughout our lifetime. So people have thought about this as potentially a change in microbial composition, diversity inside of us are a cause of this. There’s many observations that link the brain and the gut in autism. Clinically the majority of autistic children have digestive problems – constipation, abdominal pain, discomfort. Part of that is most likely due to the diet, the unique diet that autistic children self-select for. Many things are excluded from the diet that we normally would like fiber, fermented foods. And so it’s very possible that that plays a role. And there are people that have thought about this why do kids select such a diet. It seems to have to do a lot with the texture of foods. So very unique disturbance in the sensitivity for the texture, not so much for the content. So things that are soft are much preferred over crunchy and chewy things. And then, you know, people have started to look at the microbial composition. So they looked at the gut microbes in fecal samples from patients with autism and have found abnormalities.
