The inherent disease susceptibility of veal calves results in frequent antimicrobial use. Improvements in antimicrobial stewardship necessitate alternative therapies to improve calf health and growth, while reducing the need for antimicrobials important to human health. This study investigated the effect of 2 alternative therapies, lactoferrin (an iron-binding protein found in colostrum) and cinnamaldehyde (an essential oil of the cinnamon plant) on growth, disease incidence, and mortality risk in special-fed veal calves...

Achieving endoscopic remission or decreasing the level of fecal biomarkers as an ideal therapeutic goal in ulcerative colitis has not been determined. This prospective study was to compare the clinical relevance of endoscopic score with fecal biomarkers for predicting relapse after clinical remission and mucosal healing (MH). One hundred and sixty-four patients who achieved clinical remission and MH (Mayo endoscopic subscore (MES) 0 or 1) were included. At entry, fecal samples were collected for the measurement of calprotectin, lactoferrin, and hemoglobin...

BACKGROUND/OBJECTIVE: Intestinal inflammation and increased intestinal permeability (both possibly fueled by dysbiosis) have been suggested to be implicated in the multifactorial pathogenesis of Parkinson's disease (PD). The objective of the current study was to investigate whether fecal markers of inflammation and impaired intestinal barrier function corroborate this pathogenic aspect of PD. METHODS: In a case-control study, we quantitatively analyzed established fecal markers of intestinal inflammation (calprotectin and lactoferrin) and fecal markers of intestinal permeability (alpha-1-antitrypsin and zonulin) in PD patients (n = 34) and controls (n = 28, group-matched for age) by enzyme-linked immunosorbent assay...

Early life nutrition is critical for brain development. Dietary prebiotics and bioactive milk fractions support brain development by increasing plasticity and altering activity in brain regions important for cognition and emotion regulation, perhaps through the gut-microbiome-brain axis. Here we examined the impact of a diet containing prebiotics, lactoferrin, and milk fat globule membrane (test diet) on beneficial gut bacteria, basal gene expression for activity and plasticity markers within brain circuits important for cognition and anxiety, and anxiety-related behavior in the open field...

BACKGROUND: Maintenance of mucosal healing is recommended during the treatment of ulcerative colitis (UC). However, symptoms of UC often do not reflect mucosal disease activity. Fecal markers such as calprotectin, lactoferrin, and hemoglobin have been reported to correlate well with the Mayo endoscopic subscore (MES) and are being considered alternative monitoring tools in endoscopy. Ulcerative Colitis Endoscopic Index of Severity (UCEIS) is a new and more detailed endoscopic scoring system compared to MES...

BACKGROUND AND AIMS: Capsule endoscopy (CE) is the most sensitive test to diagnose small-bowel Crohn's disease (CD). Conventional parameters poorly assess CD remission, and although fecal biomarkers assess colonic activity, their role in assessing remission is uncertain. We report CE findings in small-bowel CD patients in clinical remission compared with fecal biomarkers and standard clinical tools to determine mucosal remission and predict relapses. METHODS: Forty-three adult small-bowel CD patients in clinical remission (Crohn's Disease Activity Index [CDAI] <150) were prospectively enrolled at 4 academic centers and followed clinically for 12 months...

BACKGROUND: Histologic assessment of mucosal disease activity has been increasingly used in clinical trials of treatment for Crohn's disease. However, the operating properties of the currently existing histologic scoring indices remain unclear. OBJECTIVES: A systematic review was undertaken to evaluate the development and operating characteristics of available histologic disease activity indices in Crohn's disease. SEARCH METHODS: Electronic searches of MEDLINE, EMBASE, PubMed, and the Cochrane Library (CENTRAL) databases from inception to 20 July 2016 were supplemented by manual reviews of bibliographies and abstracts submitted to major gastroenterology meetings (Digestive Disease Week, United European Gastroenterology Week, European Crohn's and Colitis Organisation)...

BACKGROUND: Calgranulin C (S100A12) is an emerging marker of inflammation. It is exclusively released by activated neutrophils which makes this marker potentially more specific for inflammatory bowel disease (IBD) compared to established stool markers including calprotectin and lactoferrin. We aimed to establish a reference value for S100A12 in healthy children and investigated whether S100A12 levels can discriminate children with IBD from healthy controls. METHODS: In a prospective community-based reference interval study we collected 122 stool samples from healthy children aged 5-19 years...

Ileocolonoscopy is the gold standard for the diagnosis and assessment of postoperative recurrence in Crohn's disease (CD). Nevertheless, endoscopy is time-consuming and invasive. A minimally invasive and simple screening test would improve patient adherence to examination and provide greater clinical benefit. A number of fecal biomarkers have been evaluated for their utility for the diagnosis and monitoring of inflammatory bowel disease as alternative tests to endoscopy. Area covered: In this review, we focused on the utility of fecal biomarkers in the management of postoperative CD...

Calf diarrhea is the most common reason for mortality and antimicrobial therapy in preweaned calves on dairy farms in the United States. Conventional and organic livestock producers require alternative therapies for calf diarrhea to reduce the necessity of conventional antimicrobials. Alternatives administered for mild cases or early in the disease course may be useful to mitigate disease progression and reduce the likelihood of septicemia and negative sequelae. Lactoferrin is a bioactive protein naturally found in colostrum that has been shown to prevent septicemia in high-risk infants...

Gastrointestinal (GI) diseases comprise a large spectrum of clinical conditions ranging from indigestion to inflammatory bowel diseases (IBDs) and carcinomas. Endoscopy is the usual method employed to diagnose these condition. Another noninvasive way to assess and diagnose GI conditions are fecal biomarkers. Fecal biomarkers provide information regarding a specific disease process and are perhaps more acceptable to clinicians and patients alike because of their non-invasivity compared to endoscopy. Aim of this review was to evaluate the current status of the fecal biomarkers in clinical and research for in GI diseases...

Lactoferrin (LF) is a multifunctional cationic protein (pI 8.2-8.9) in mammalian milk. We previously reported that enteric-LF prevented hypercholesterolemia and atherosclerosis in a diet-induced atherosclerosis model using Microminipig, although the underlying mechanisms remain unclear. Because LF is assumed to electrostatically interact with bile acids to inhibit intestinal cholesterol absorption, LF could promote cholesterol excretion. In this study, we assessed the interaction between LF and taurocholate in vitro, and the effect of LF on cholesterol excretion in rats...

Increasing evidence suggests that regular physical exercise suppresses chronic inflammation. However, the potential inhibitory effects of swimming on dextran sulfate sodium (DSS)-induced chronic colitis, and its underlying mechanisms, remain unclear. In this study, rats were orally administered DSS to induce chronic colitis, and subsequently treated with or without swimming exercise. A 7-week swimming program (1 or 1.5 hours per day, 5 days per week) ameliorated DSS-caused colon shortening, colon barrier disruption, spleen enlargement, serum LDH release, and reduction of body weight gain...

BACKGROUND: The management of Clostridium difficile infection (CDI) in children is complicated by recurrence rates of 20%-30%. The identification of risk factors associated with recurrent disease might allow early recognition of those children at highest risk. METHODS: Pediatric patients with CDI were identified through clinical laboratory records at 2 tertiary-care children's hospitals from March 2013 through May 2014. Subjects were enrolled and followed for 60 days to assess for recurrent CDI (rCDI)...

Helicobacter pylori (H. pylori) infection is involved in multiple gastrointestinal and extra-gastrointestinal disorders. This review focuses on possible link between H. pylori eradication and Crohn's disease (CD) which is a chronic inflammatory bowel disease (IBD). Fecal calprotectin and; to lesser extent; fecal lactoferrin are sensitive and specific markers for monitoring CD activity. Data about link between H. pylori eradication and CD are limited and inconclusive. The infection likely shifts equilibrium between T helper 1 (Th1) and Th2 immune responses to the Th2 pattern...
