The article investigates the presence of helicobacter and enterotoxigenic bacteroides fragilis in patients with inflammatory bowel disease. The presence of Helicobacter species and Bacteroide fragilis enterotoxin was determined by polymerase chain reaction (PCR) with the use of primers species for Helicobacter in IBD patients and control patients. After PCR, sequencing and Blast search, the presence of Helicobocter species was confirmed in 3 patients with IBD and 3 control patients. The colon does not seem to be a natural habitat for Helicobacter species whereas the prevalence of enterotoxigenic Bacteroides fragilis is high. However, neither of these two pathogens appear to be linked to either IBD or diarrhoea in patients.

    Aims: Both epithelial barrier dysfunction and apoptosis resistance of immune cells contribute to the pathogenesis of Crohn's disease. The soluble decoy receptor 3 (DcR3) acts in an anti-apoptotic manner by neutralising the death ligand CD95L. Here, we investigated the possible involvement of...

    Background: Mycobacterium avium subsp. paratuberculosis (MAP) is the etiological agent of paratuberculosis (Johne's disease) in ruminants and is suggested to be one of the etiologic factors in Crohn's disease in humans. Contaminated milk might expose humans to that pathogen. The aim of the...

    OBJECTIVES:Early onset inflammatory bowel diseases (EO-IBD) developing during the first year of life are likely to reflect inherited defects in key mechanism(s) controlling intestinal homeostasis, as recently suggested for interleukin 10 (IL10). Thus, we aimed to further elaborate the hypothesis...

    Bovine torovirus (BToV) is recognized as an enteric pathogen of calves, but its etiological role in diarrhea and epidemiological characterization in adult cows remain unclear. In 2007-2008, three outbreaks of epidemic diarrhea occurred in adult cows at three dairy farms in Niigata Prefecture,...

    Introduction: Norovirus is not usually investigated in diarrheal patients in Bangladesh which may account for the many cases where no pathogens are identified. Methodology: Stool specimens collected from diarrheal patients from three hospitals in Bangladesh during 2011 were investigated for...
