A link established between Alzheimer’s and intestinal microbes – La Nouvelle Tribune

Several European researchers and experts have discovered that there is indeed a cause and effect link between the gut microbiota and Alzheimer’s disease. A link that was already suspected within the scientific community, but Swiss and Italian researchers confirmed the information in an article published on November 10, in the “Journal of Alzheimer’s Disease”.

Indeed, according to the press, these scientists have in fact discovered a direct relationship between inflammation in the blood of people affected by this disease, various intestinal bacteria and finally, the development of Alzheimer’s disease. A study that was conducted on 89 people, all between the ages of 65 and 85.

A notable advance has been recorded

In this panel, some people suffered from Alzheimer’s, others were in good health. The first results actually suggest that the inflammation discovered mediated to facilitate the transmission and development of the disease, between the microbiota and the brain.

Alzheimer’s, better understood

Today, these results thus suggest that it will soon be possible to prevent Alzheimer’s and to regulate the intestinal microbiota in patients at risk. However, this should only be useful and effective at a relatively early stage of the disease. If the progress is notable, it is clear that there is still a lot of work.
