Summary of "Antibiotics exacerbated colitis by affecting the microbiota, Treg cells and SCFAs in IL10-deficient mice."

Many studies have shown that antibiotic therapy can attenuate colitis in IL10-deficient (IL10) mice. However, these results have indicated that antibiotics were more successful in preventing, rather than treating established colitis. Those antibiotic treatments attempted to only partially alter the intestinal microbiota and to not eliminate it completely. Therefore, we treated IL10 mice with the multiantibiotic regimen that was used to develop a pseudo-germ-free mouse model to determine whether multi-antibiotics attenuated or exacerbated colitis. We evaluated the colitis in IL10 mice receiving the antibiotic treatment versus those receiving the water control; furthermore, we investigated the gut microbiota, the intestinal immune cell proportions and the cytokine secretion. Surprisingly, the IL10 mice receiving the antibiotic treatment had more severe intestinal colitis and a swollen cecum than those receiving the water control. Moreover, the abundance of microbiota and content of short-chain fatty acids (SCFAs) in the colon were dramatically decreased. Additionally, the proportions of Treg cells and Th1 cells in the colons of IL10 mice were also decreased. The mechanism may be that the decrease in the microbiota leads to a decrease in the proportions of Treg cells and SCFAs, which are necessary to maintain intestinal homeostasis. All changes lead to further exacerbated colitis in IL10 mice with antibiotic treatment.

Medical and Biotech [MESH] Definitions

A condition characterized by chronic watery DIARRHEA of unknown origin, a normal COLONOSCOPY but abnormal histopathology on BIOPSY. This syndrome was first described in 1980 by Read and associates. Subtypes include COLLAGENOUS COLITIS and LYMPHOCYTIC COLITIS. Both have similar clinical symptoms and are distinguishable only by histology.

Transfer of GASTROINTESTINAL MICROBIOTA from one individual to another by infusion of donor FECES to the upper or lower GASTROINTESTINAL TRACT of the recipient.

Nonsusceptibility of bacteria to the action of the beta-lactam antibiotics. Mechanisms responsible for beta-lactam resistance may be degradation of antibiotics by BETA-LACTAMASES, failure of antibiotics to penetrate, or low-affinity binding of antibiotics to targets.

A subtype of MICROSCOPIC COLITIS, characterized by chronic watery DIARRHEA of unknown origin, a normal COLONOSCOPY but abnormal histopathology on BIOPSY. Microscopic examination of biopsy samples taken from the COLON show larger-than-normal band of subepithelial COLLAGEN.

A subtype of MICROSCOPIC COLITIS, characterized by chronic watery DIARRHEA of unknown origin, a normal COLONOSCOPY but abnormal histopathology on BIOPSY. Microscopic examination of biopsy samples taken from the COLON show infiltration of LYMPHOCYTES in the superficial EPITHELIUM and the underlying connective tissue (lamina propria).
