Gut microflora dysbiosis has been closely related to a variety of diseases including obesity and inflammatory bowel disease. Proteins and peptides in egg white have been found to alleviate inflammation, but the role played by the intestinal flora is still unclear. Using casein as a dietary protein control, we investigated the effects of diets composed of hen egg white, duck egg white, and preserved egg white on gut microbiota in the rat caecum.

The expression of the carbohydrate-active enzyme family and related genes is known to be influenced by the response of intestinal microbiota to dietary changes. However, it is uncertain whether this i...
Phytic acid (PA) or myoinositol intake was recently reported by our group to suppress hepatic lipogenic gene expression and modulate gut microbiota in rats fed a high-sucrose diet (HSC). The aim of th...
Cotrimoxazole (TMP-SMX) is concomitantly used as primary prophylaxis of opportunistic infections with antiretroviral agents such as Atazanavir (ATV). Results from an ex vivo study showed changes in in...
Flavonoids are dietary non-nutrient bioactives with antioxidant and anti-inflammatory properties. Fruits, vegetables, nuts, legumes, and tea are rich in flavonoids. After consumption, flavonoids are e...
The gut microbiota is a central regulator of host metabolism. The composition and function of the gut microbiota is dynamic and affected by diet properties such as the amount and composition of lipids...
FLORA is a longitudinal intervention study with a randomized, parallel group design. Primary objective is to improve metabolic health through gut microbiota modulation by means of a retail...
Aim: To study the effect of a dietary intervention with functional foods on gut microbiota in subjects with type 2 diabetes Materials and methods: Patients with type 2 diabetes were enroll...
The aim of the present study is to research whether subjects with irritable bowel syndrome (IBS) display epigenetic/genetic changes or altered microbiota compared to a non-IBS control grou...
Background There has been much interest in the relationship between the types of gut microbiota and the development of obesity in recent years. It has been reported that the proportions of...
Modern way of life characterized by decreased physical activity and poor dietary habits seems to be an important trigger for the onset of metabolic disorders. Accumulating evidence indicat...
A study in which observations are made before and after an intervention, both in a group that receives the intervention and in a control group that does not.
Inbred rats derived from Sprague-Dawley rats and used for the study of salt-dependent hypertension. Salt-sensitive and salt-resistant strains have been selectively bred to show the opposite genetically determined blood pressure responses to excess sodium chloride ingestion.
A study that uses observations at multiple time points before and after an intervention (the "interruption"), in an attempt to detect whether the intervention has had an effect significantly greater than any underlying trend over time.
A study that compares a group of participants receiving an intervention with a similar group from the past who did not.
The study of the similarities and differences in the structures of homologous tissues across various species.
Obesity is the condition in which excess fat has accumulated in the body (mostly in subcutaneous tissues). clinical obesity is considered to be present when a person has a BMI of over 30 (Oxford Dictionary of Medicine). It is becoming increasing common i...
