Gastrointestinal bleeding and iron absorption in the experimental blind loop syndrome. (1/24)

Rats with surgically created self-filling jejunal blind loops and the blind loop syndrome manifested gastrointestinal bleeding and hyperabsorption of iron. Although the mean hematocrit and serum iron levels of rats with self-filling blind loops became overtly anemic and manifested low-serum iron levels. It is suggested that the documented gastrointestinal bleeding in these rats with the experimental blind loop syndrome is another manifestation of damage to the intestinal epithelium in conditions of small intestinal bacterial overgrowth.  (+info)

Absorbable vs. non-absorbable antibiotics in the treatment of small intestine bacterial overgrowth in patients with blind-loop syndrome. (2/24)

BACKGROUND: Small intestine bacterial overgrowth is associated with the presence of predisposing conditions, acting through different mechanisms. Therefore, the failure to define a standardized therapy may be due to a methodological bias: to treat a condition characterized by different pathophysiological mechanisms with the same pharmacological approach. Non-absorbable antibiotics could have a lower efficacy than absorbable drugs in patients with blind loops which exclude a portion of the intestine from the transit. AIM: To evaluate the efficacy of absorbable vs. non-absorbable antibiotics in this subgroup of patients. METHODS: A group of small intestine bacterial overgrowth patients with total gastrectomy or gastrojejunostomy and blind loop underwent a therapeutic trial comparing rifaximin to metronidazole. Seven patients underwent a course of rifaximin followed by a course of metronidazole on recurrence of symptoms. To compare the effect of the drugs, another two groups of patients underwent two consecutive courses of rifaximin or metronidazole. Hydrogen breath test after glucose administration and symptom severity measurement were performed. RESULTS: Both drugs reduced breath H(2) excretion but a much better improvement was achieved after metronidazole. Symptom improvement was higher after metronidazole. CONCLUSION: Metronidazole is more effective than rifaximin for the treatment of small intestine bacterial overgrowth associated with the presence of a blind loop.  (+info)

Human intestinal microbiota create a complex polymicrobial ecology. This is characterised by its high population density, wide diversity and complexity of interaction. Any dysbalance of this complex intestinal microbiome, both qualitative and quantitative, might have serious health consequence for a macro-organism, including small intestinal bacterial overgrowth syndrome (SIBO). SIBO is defined as an increase in the number and/or alteration in the type of bacteria in the upper gastrointestinal tract. There are several endogenous defence mechanisms for preventing bacterial overgrowth: gastric acid secretion, intestinal motility, intact ileo-caecal valve, immunoglobulins within intestinal secretion and bacteriostatic properties of pancreatic and biliary secretion. Aetiology of SIBO is usually complex, associated with disorders of protective antibacterial mechanisms (e.g. achlorhydria, pancreatic exocrine insufficiency, immunodeficiency syndromes), anatomical abnormalities (e.g. small intestinal obstruction, diverticula, fistulae, surgical blind loop, previous ileo-caecal resections) and/or motility disorders (e.g. scleroderma, autonomic neuropathy in diabetes mellitus, post-radiation enteropathy, small intestinal pseudo-obstruction). In some patients more than one factor may be involved. Symptoms related to SIBO are bloating, diarrhoea, malabsorption, weight loss and malnutrition. The gold standard for diagnosing SIBO is still microbial investigation of jejunal aspirates. Non-invasive hydrogen and methane breath tests are most commonly used for the diagnosis of SIBO using glucose or lactulose. Therapy for SIBO must be complex, addressing all causes, symptoms and complications, and fully individualised. It should include treatment of the underlying disease, nutritional support and cyclical gastro-intestinal selective antibiotics. Prognosis is usually serious, determined mostly by the underlying disease that led to SIBO.  (+info)

Self-filling blind loops of rat jejunum exhibit hyperregenerative transformation of the mucosa. We used this experimental model to characterise mechanisms, which may occur under similar conditions in man (stagnant loop syndrome). Epithelial and subepithelial resistance were measured in the Ussing-chamber by voltage divider ratio measurements after positioning a microelectrode between epithelium and subepithelial tissue layers. In the blind loop, epithelial resistance increased from 8 +/- 1 to 23 +/- 1 omega cm2 and subepithelial resistance from 39 +/- 4 to 86 +/- 8 omega cm2 as compared with control jejunum. The increase in the subepithelial resistance was paralleled anatomically by an increase in the thickness of the subepithelial tissue layers from 63 +/- 4 microns to 177 +/- 19 microns. Ultrastructural analysis of the tight junction area by freeze fracture electron microscopy revealed an increase in the total junctional depth in the crypts from 243 +/- 9 nm in control jejunum to 396 +/- 17 ...

Efferent Loop Syndrome What is efferent loop syndrome? Efferent loop syndrome is one of two loop syndromes that can happen after some types of gastric surgery. In a loop syndrome, a portion or limb of the small intestine becomes blocked. Of the two types of loop syndromes, the other type, afferent loop syndrome, is the more common. Efferent loop syndrome is quite rare. Surgeons have improved gastric surgery, so both types of loop syndromes are now less common. What causes efferent loop syndrome afte...

Prophylactic antibiotic therapy may be indicated in cases of IBD. Criteria that determine antibiotic use include the presence of peripheral leukocytosis, elevated hepatic or pancreatic enzymes on the biochemical profile, bleeding from the GI tract, suspected bacterial overgrowth or stagnant loop syndrome, and severe mucosal inflammatory changes with a neutrophilic component. Two antibiotics that are often used in combination with prednisolone therapy are amoxicillin (Amoxi-tabs) and metronidazole (Flagyl). Amoxicillin has both aerobic and anaerobic bactericidal effects and is dosed at 5 to 10 mg/lb b.i.d. for 10 to 14 days or as long as deemed necessary by the veterinarian. Metronidazole is primarily an anaerobic bactericidal antibiotic and often shows dramatic clinical response in combination with prednisolone therapy in refractory IBD cases. Metroniclazole also has an antiprotozoan effect and aids in inhibiting cell-mediated immune responses in the intestinal tract. For IBD therapy ...

Objective and Background: Small intestinal bacterial overgrowth (SIBO) has been implicated in pathogenesis of IBS. We aimed to study frequency and predictors of SIBO in patients with IBS.. Methodology: We included 59 consecutive patients of IBS & 37 healthy controls (HC). Evaluation for SIBO was done by glucose breath test (GBT) using 100 gm of glucose after an overnight fast. Breath hydrogen & methane concentration were noted at baseline & every 15 min after administration of glucose for a total of 3 h. Persistent rise in breath hydrogen or methane , 12 ppm above basal was considered diagnostic of SIBO.. Results: Of 59 patients, 27 were diarrhoea predominant (D-IBS), 11 were constipation predominant (C-IBS) and 21 were mixed type (M-IBS). Median age of patients (34 [18-47] years) were comparable to controls (35 [20-48] years) (P = 0.21). Patient group was similar to HC in gender distribution (male 41/59 [69.5%]vs 25/37 [67.6%], P = 0.36). SIBO was more frequent in patients with IBS than HC ...
Background. Recent studies have shown that the intestinal barrier function is altered and macromolecules can translocate after trauma and hemorrhagic shock. The translocated molecules are absorbed from the lymphatic tissue or directly enter the circulation in the gut. However, it remains unknown to what degree these compartments contribute to the clearance of the macromolecules. Methods. Male Sprague-Dawley rats (350-400 g) underwent a 5-cm midline laparotomy (i.e., soft tissue injury), were bled to a mean arterial pressure of 35 mmHg and maintained for approximately 90 min, and then resuscitated with Ringers lactate (4× the shed blood volume) over 60 min. At 2 h after resuscitation, a solution containing 51Cr-EDTA, FITC-dextran-4 kDa, and rhodamine B-dextran-40 kDa was instilled into a jejunal blind loop and their concentrations were determined in mesenteric lymph and blood samples harvested between 2 h and 4 h after resuscitation. Results. Trauma-hemorrhage and crystalloid resuscitation ...

Research Institutions: Sir Mortimer B Davis Jewish General Hospital (Montreal, Canada), University of Utah. Disease: Systemic Sclerosis. Research Description: Systemic Sclerosis (SSc), or scleroderma, is a rare, serious multi-system disorder of connective tissue disease. Patients who suffer from this condition have a thickening and hardening of the skin and connective tissues, and the gastrointestinal tract (GIT) is the most commonly involved internal organ in SSc. Decreased motility of the bowel in SSc leads to small intestinal bacterial overgrowth (SIBO), which contributes to symptoms such as pain, fatigue, depression and malnutrition. Treatment for SIBO consists of antibiotics and drugs to increase GIT motility, yet no standard protocol or studies on how to best use these treatments exists. The research team has developed a detailed treatment protocol for SIBO, which they will test at multiple global clinical locations, including sites in the U.S. and Canada. The protocol also includes ...

Acne is another skin condition for which an accepted mode of treatment is antibiotics. While the theory of leaky gut and SIBO is relatively young, to date there are no published studies comparing SIBO prevalence in acne sufferers to control groups. However, there is an interesting link which looks likely to point at least to an involvement of SIBO.. Acne is in part a hormonally provoked skin condition which can be caused in adulthood due to high a sugar diet. High sugar foods or high glycaemic index (GI) foods cause the release of hormones known as insulin and insulin-like growth factor (IGF-1). IGF-1, in particular, is positively linked to oily skin and acne. Interestingly emerging research has shown specific gut bacteria can influence insulin levels in addition to glucose turnover rates[11]. A bacteria known as bifido-bacteria is thought to be most important. What links these findings together even more tightly is that acne is a common side effect of puberty and that a period of insulin ...
