Metabolic dysfunction drives inflammation in multiple sclerosis

New guidelines available that will provide better treatment for multiple sclerosis (MS) patients who experience fatigue, a common side effect of most anti-allergy drugs.

The new guidelines developed by the French Nutrition Foundation (FNSF) recommend patients should be given paxilutide, a common anti-inflammatory drug approved as a European medicine for treating allergic diseases with paxilol, and ampicillin and cefepime – widely used medications for ulcerative colitis – be administered daily.

The supplement should be given to patients until the condition becomes adequate, according to the current guideline, published by the FNSF Medica review article.

In a text version of the guideline, the French species of bacteria (Bacillus delbrueck, B. delbrueckss and Palkovia) – people everywhere – that make up less than 0. 3 per cent of the biochemistry of the microbial flora are mentioned.

It is also mentioned that the bacterial flora, if not undigestible to the body, is a good indicator of disease; and because of this, it is the ideal indicator for the diagnosis of MS patients.

The evidence is negative but clear, and it is known that fatigue”, said the FNSF article ‘On the basis of the analysis of the biochemistry of microorganisms’ in its original edition.

It is also said that the deficiency of the main kind of bacteria (Lactobacillus), that are present in the gut of MS patients, has a sole role in promoting the disease development.

Changes from study.

The research group, based in Belgium, has looked for an unprecedented synthesis of the literature that has just been published on gut bacteria in MS.

In their work, they employed this method of the search to identify biomarkers (organo-metabolic markers) that were associated with the cytokine interleukin-1 beta (IL-1β) and its signalling pathway, called the MAP4 receptor, in the human microflora.

Until now, the studies were unclear on the precise role that gut bacteria plays in MS.

Russian scientists have also corrected their findings.

They published a new study in the journal Biomed Tieri online in May presenting results from studies showing that Ly3-expressing bacteria in the gut are important for production of all the components essential for MS.

Ly3-expressing bacteria were found in 90 per cent of all patients in the cohort included in the original study as compared to only 40 per cent of the cohort without the bacteria, and in a significant proportion of the patients with MS.

Unquestionably, this study is significant because it shows that a healthy, well-functioning gut microbiota can function as a time capsule for the origin of some diseases, follow them, and determine their course.

The finding can result in the possibility of its prevention, or of new development and refinement of therapeutic agents.

Human gut microbiotas.

The ANDREWS studies speculated on the role bacterial metabolites play in the pathogenesis of MS in humans.

Besides patients, results showed that a subset of exercising mice without markers for the ly3-expressing bacteria was also lost to MS compared to 1-2-3-4-6-8-9-10-11-16 mice.

They also showed that the adverse effects on the cells from the mean blood circulation of MS patients were distinctly different from that of healthy mice. In particular, less B cells comprised in a subset of MS patients belong to the healthy and active ones.

There are also advantages for biotechnological approaches against infection – for example, the research group’s studies demonstrated that “ET-18” – a bacterial protein closely associated with the pathogenesis of several diseases – was induced in the human testes, mimicking the effect of ET.

“[R]elevant to this study of the etiology of MS, the analysis of the immediate environment (environmental therapy) altered the biomarkers in the gut microbiota, raising the possibility of the possibility of a therapeutic application”, said the article’s illustrator, Mario Pedrazero, of the University of Modena, Italy.
