Single Gut Bacteria Enterotype Associates Multiple Types of Inflammatory Bowel Disease

News

Researchers who sequenced the fecal samples of over 3,000 healthy volunteers recently described the so-called B2 enterotype, which is deficient in some anti-inflammatory bacteria. Today, they published more data, showing the high prevalence of this particular enterotype across multiple disease diagnoses.

Antioxidant Overwhelmed by Tau in the Alzheimer's Brain

News

New research may explain why an antioxidant that protects the brain is also associated with deterioration in areas susceptible to Alzheimer’s disease. The antioxidant, superoxide dismutase or SOD1, improves cognition, but an Iowa State University research team found SOD1’s protective benefits dramatically weaken when levels of tau proteins – a hallmark of Alzheimer’s disease – increase.
