Lactobacillus Acidophilus


Presentation

  • Thus, considering the results of the present work, L. acidophilus CH1-derived bacteriocin can present a powerful safe therapy against intestinal microsporidiosis. Copyright 2014 Elsevier Inc. All rights reserved.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov]
  • IMPORTANCE Thousands of therapeutically active plant-derived compounds are widely present in berries, fruits, nuts, and beverages like tea and wine.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov]
  • We present a rare case of infectious endocarditis caused by Lactobacillus acidophilus in a patient on long-term steroid use for autoimmune hepatitis.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov]
  • We present the case of a middle-aged man whose bacterial endocarditis, caused by Lactobacillus acidophilus, led to an aneurysmal rupture of the sinus of Valsalva into the right ventricular outflow tract.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov]
  • We present the case of a 2-month-old infant who apparently developed Lactobacillus acidophilus sepsis from an infected central venous catheter.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov]
Formication
  • To avoid carryover, the needle seat was back-flushed for 15 s at 4 ml min 1 with each of the following: (i) isopropanol–0.2% ammonium hydroxide (wt/vol) in water (1:1 [vol/vol]); (ii) acetonitrile with 2% formic acid (wt/vol); (iii) water with 2% formic[mbio.asm.org]
  • Bifidobacteria ferment carbohydrates to L( )-lactic acid and acetic acid in a molar ratio of 2:3, producing small amounts of formic acid, succinic acid, and ethanol10). L( )-lactic acid is more easily metabolized. C.[web.archive.org]
Skin Lesion
  • Skin lesions were assessed using the SCORing AD (SCORAD) index before the start of L-92 ingestion and 4 and 8 weeks after ingestion. Serum cytokine and blood marker levels were measured 8 weeks after the start of L-92 ingestion.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov]
Anxiety Disorder
  • It helps in reducing diabetes, reduction in symptoms of IBS, anxiety disorders, helps in weight loss, prevents symptoms of leaky gut, acne and much more.[pocketreviewer.com]

Workup

Aldolase Increased
  • Mucin-supplemented bacteria had relative abundance of pyruvate kinase and fructose-bisphosphate aldolase increased by about 2-fold while six spots with 3.2-2.1 fold reduced relative abundance comprised elongation factor G, phosphoglycerate kinase, BipAEFTU[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov]
Giardia Lamblia
  • In an article in Health World, Brad Everett 6 says that Giardia lamblia is the most widespread intestinal parasite in the United States. It is estimated to affect 7.4% of our population.[web.archive.org]

Treatment

  • The number of E. coli increased significantly after 2-week treatment, while after 6-week treatment, it nearly decreased to the level before treatment.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov]
  • Despite unproven effectiveness, Lactobacillus acidophilus is a widely used probiotic in the treatment of pediatric diarrhea.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov]
  • The probiotic combination, even if resulting in a different microbicidal activity against the different strains tested, demonstrated the efficacy of combined Lactobacillus strain treatment.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov]
  • Treatment was given to subjects for 28 days. KEY RESULTS: One-hundred and seventy-six patients completed the study.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov]
  • In IL-1β-stimulated cells, PCM treatment decreased the upregulation of genes in the NF-κB activation pathway and downregulated genes associated with extracellular matrix (ECM) remodeling.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov]

Prognosis

  • As expression of CTAs in cancers is usually associated with higher grades and poor prognosis, downregulation of their expression by lactobacilli may have clinical implications.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov]
  • NUTRITION AS A THERAPEUTIC OPTION Although the development of highly active drugs like anti-TNF alpha antibodies has changed the short-term prognosis of severe IBD, there is still a need for low-risk alternative approaches or adjuvant therapies[ 68 ].[doi.org]

Etiology

  • Nutrition in IBD as compared to controls In recent decades a wide range of nutrients and their roles in the etiology of IBD have been investigated[ 11 ].[doi.org]

  • Epidemiological studies suggest an increased risk of IBD associated with a high intake of the so-called “Western diet”, which includes refined sugar and meat and animal fat, along with low fiber intake[ 14, 21 ].[doi.org]

Pathophysiology

  • Pathophysiology of IBD and NEC includes the production of diverse lipid mediators, including platelet-activating factor (PAF) that mediate inflammatory responses in the disease.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov]
