Bifidobacterium infantis NLS Super Strain Reduces a-Defensin-5 in Active Celiac Disease Patients

Certain bacteria strains show promise against celiac disease.

Celiac.com 12/29/2016 - Researchers have documented a reduction of gastrointestinal symptoms in untreated celiac disease patients after oral administration of Bifidobacterium infantis Natren Life Start super strain (NLS-SS). The reduction of symptoms was not connected with and changes in intestinal permeability or serum levels of cytokines, chemokines, or growth factors. That led the team to hypothesize that the benefits observed in celiac patients treated with B. infantis may be connected to the modulation of innate immunity.

A team of researchers recently set out to investigate the potential mechanisms of a probiotic B. infantis Natren Life Start super strain on the mucosal expression of innate immune markers in adult patients with active untreated celiac disease compared with those treated with B. infantis 6 weeks and after 1 year of gluten-free diet. The research team included Maria I. Pinto-Sanchez, MD, Edgardo C. Smecuol, MD, Maria P. Temprano, RD, Emilia Sugai, BSBC, Andrea Gonzalez, RD, PhD, Maria L. Moreno, MD, Xianxi Huang, MD, PhD, Premysl Bercik, MD, Ana Cabanne, MD, Horacio Vazquez, MD, Sonia Niveloni, MD, Roberto Mazure, MD, Eduardo Maurino, MD, Elena F. Verdu´, MD, PhD, and Julio C. Bai, MD.

They are variously affiliated with the Medicine Department, Farcombe Family Digestive Health Research Institute, McMaster University, Hamilton, ON, Canada; Small Intestinal Section, Department of Medicine; Department of Alimentation, Dr. C. Bonorino Udaondo Gastroenterology Hospital and Research Institute at the Universidad del Salvador in Buenos Aires, Argentina.

They first used immunohistochemistry to assess the numbers of macrophages and Paneth cells, and the expression a-defensin-5 in duodenal biopsies. They found that a gluten-free diet reduces duodenal macrophage counts in celiac patients more effectively than B. infantis. In contrast, B. infantis decreases Paneth cell counts and expression of a-defensin-5 in celiac disease (P< 0.001).

The results identify differential innate immune effects of treatment with B. infantis compared with 1 year of gluten-free diet.

The team is calling for further study to determine synergistic effects of gluten-free diet and B. infantis supplements in celiac disease.

Thanks for the information I found the article interesting. In my long history of GI and gluten issues in the mid 1990's when I was diagnosed with IBS by symptoms, having bouts of gastroenteritis in the hospital, and terrible muscle aches of the sacroilliac and back. I begged my mom to help me find someone to help me. My mom through a friend's husband got me to a chiropractor who put me on a probiotic 2 strains and calcium/magnesium. Now 20 years later I realize as I struggle to get a diagnosis for celiac or ncgs and my IBS is not found/ruled out, I see how this chiropractor helped me. Then she helped improved the symptoms , perhaps that's why I'm a challenge to diagnose now. I don't regret it. I always felt the best when she was in my life, she has moved, but I wonder today these many years later is the reason I'm so challenging to diagnosis because despite numerous symptoms etc. Is my immune system more regulated and not showing celiac on serum because I was using probiotics early in the past long before they arrived on store shelves/mainstream?. I've always known they helped me and I over the years went on and off them. The brand I take is purchased through holistic Drs. I had to go off them during my gluten challenge, all I could think of during my gluten challenge is I want this over and I NEED my probiotic!!. It does not stop every celiac/NCGS symptom I get, they have increased over the years, but I feel better when on them. So it was interesting to see it doesn't stop the leaky gut because that is exactly my personal experience. However it keeps things immunological in check.

Gluten free 01, I totally agree that gluten free light is not good. I sometimes have to eat every hour. This seems to be related to low cortisol and low female hormones. Maybe also other deficiencies. I don?t think going gluten free is the only solution to this problem. I am sure with the he...

I don't have a lot of time this morning but I did locate organizations section on gluten free label regs in Canada. There may be more info on this in that section that may be helpful in knowing why they are making that change. http://www.inspection.gc.ca/food/labelling/food-labelling-for-ind...

Funny you should mention this, I got a offer for some free ones from that company and just turned it down. The only gluten free products from the company are a 2 lines of dedicated nut type bars. The majority of their bars actually contain either barley (gluten grain) like the biscuits etc. Or wh...
