A new study has uncovered how brain injury can be worsened by bacteria in the gut. The gut-brain connection is one of the more fascinating new areas of medical research. This intriguing two-way axis has been found to have numerous unexpected effects. On one hand some studies have demonstrated how magnetic brain stimulation can alter person’s gut microbiome while other studies have shown how gut bacteria could potentially play a role in the onset of PTSD (post traumatic stress syndrome) and Alzheimer’s. Studies in patients and subsequent mouse research really drive home that our gut microbiomes modulate both systemic and anti-tumor immunity, said Jennifer Wargo, a surgical oncologist and geneticist at the University of Texas MD Anderson Cancer Center. She is planning clinical trials to see if fecal transplant in cancer patients could improve immunotherapy success rates. The main conclusion from this is: You can change your microbiome.
