Article
Full-text available
Micro-organisms are often subjected to stressful conditions. Owing to their capacity to adapt, they try to rapidly cope with the unfavorable conditions by lowering their growth rate, changing their morphology, and developing altered metabolite production and other stress-related metabolism. The stress-related metabolism of the cells which interrupt...

Recent developments in the understanding of the relationship between the microbiota and its host have provided evidence regarding the therapeutic potential of selected microorganisms to prevent or treat disease. According to Directive 2001/83/EC, in the European Union (EU), any product intended to prevent or treat disease is defined as a medicinal...
Patent
The present invention relates to a mixture of bacteria belonging to at least 6 or 7 different and specific bacterial species preferably for use to prevent or treat gastro-intestinal disorders. Preferably, said mixture of bacteria are grown together in a fermenter prior to administering said mixture to a subject in order to prevent or treat said dis...

Induced pluripotent stem cells (iPSCs) hold great potential not only for human but also for veterinary purposes. The equine industry must often deal with health issues concerning muscle and cartilage, where comprehensive regenerative strategies are still missing. In this regard, a still open question is whether equine iPSCs differentiate toward mus...
Article
The estrogen concentration has been determined in breast tissue, focusing largely on samples obtained from breast cancers. In this study, estradiol concentration was determined in normal breast tissue obtained from women undergoing esthetic, and oncoplastic surgery. Normal breast tissue was obtained during 68 operations for esthetic or reconstructi...
Chapter
Phytoestrogens are polyphenolic, non-steroidal plant-derived compounds that can interfere with endogenous estrogen signaling and associated processes. As estrogens are implicated in the etiology of breast cancer, these hormonally active compounds are evaluated as potential cancer chemopreventive or promoting agents. The differential estrogen recept...

In developed countries, the life expectancy of women is currently extending more than 30 years beyond the age of menopause. The menopausal transition is often associated with complaints. The conflicting results on the effectivity of phytoestrogens to alleviate menopausal symptoms. This discrepancy in treatment effect may be due to the large interin...
Article
The importance of the gut microbiota in the phyto-oestrogen bioavailability and bioactivity has been convincingly demonstrated in vitro and in vivo. Equol, a microbial metabolite of the soy isoflavone daidzein, is more bioactive than its precursor, and has been hypothesized as a clue to the effectiveness of soy and its isoflavones. Analogously, the...
