Study of Gut Microbiota in Primary Immune Deficiency, Possibly Associated With Inflammatory Bowel Disease

2016-09-21 20:23:22 | BioPortfolio


Some Primary Immune Deficiencies can be associated with an inflammatory bowel disease, mimicking Crohn disease : the Chronic Granulomatous Disease (CGD), the XIAP deficiency, and the TTC7A deficiency.

This inflammatory bowel disease is frequent but inconstant, raising questions about other factors contributing to the disease. The aim of our study is to analyze, describe and compare the gut microbiota of patients with those primary immune deficiency, with or without intestinal disease.

The investigators can expect, in the long term, to compare on a same patient, the gut microbiota evolution, and to assess the role of gut microbiota modifications on the onset of an inflammatory bowel disease.


The investigators will include patients (adults or children), with Primary Immune Deficiency (CGD, XIAP or TTC7A deficiencies), and they will collect feces samples from them.

In parallel, as control groups, patients with no inflammatory bowel disease and no primary immune deficiency will be included, and also patients suffering from Crohn's disease without known primary immune deficiency.

The laboratory collaborators will then realize analyzes on the microbiota collected for all patients.

The study team will then analyze the microbiota composition of the different types of patients, and try to identify some factors, associated with the appearance of an inflammatory disease on these patients.

Metoclopramide unmasks potentially misleading contralateral suppression in patients undergoing adrenal vein sampling for primary aldosteronism.

As metoclopramide stimulates aldosterone secretion, we tested its usefulness in the assessment of lateralization of primary aldosteronism by adrenal vein sampling (AVS).

Diagnostic criteria for adrenal venous sampling.

Primary aldosteronism accounts for 3 to 5% of all hypertension cases. Unilateral aldosterone hypersecretion can be treated with adrenalectomy. Guidelines for primary aldosteronism management recommend...

Medical and Biotech [MESH] Definitions

A sampling methodology using small sample sizes when conducting surveys in small geographical or population-based areas or lots.

Sampling of blood levels of the adrenocorticotropic hormone (ACTH) by withdrawal of blood from the inferior petrosal sinus. The inferior petrosal sinus arises from the cavernous sinus and runs to the internal jugular vein. Sampling of blood at this level is a valuable tool in the differential diagnosis of Cushing disease, Cushing syndrome, and other adrenocortical diseases.

A method for diagnosis of fetal diseases by sampling the cells of the placental chorionic villi for DNA analysis, presence of bacteria, concentration of metabolites, etc. The advantage over amniocentesis is that the procedure can be carried out in the first trimester.

Substances that augment, stimulate, activate, potentiate, or modulate the immune response at either the cellular or humoral level. The classical agents (Freund's adjuvant, BCG, Corynebacterium parvum, et al.) contain bacterial antigens. Some are endogenous (e.g., histamine, interferon, transfer factor, tuftsin, interleukin-1). Their mode of action is either non-specific, resulting in increased immune responsiveness to a wide variety of antigens, or antigen-specific, i.e., affecting a restricted type of immune response to a narrow group of antigens. The therapeutic efficacy of many biological response modifiers is related to their antigen-specific immunoadjuvanticity.

Complex pharmaceutical substances, preparations, or agents of organic origin, usually obtained by biological methods or assay. They are used especially in diagnosis and treatment of disease (as vaccines or pollen extracts). Biological products are differentiated from BIOLOGICAL FACTORS in that the latter are compounds with biological or physiological activity made by living organisms. (From Webster's 3d ed)
