Irritable Bowels have Reduced Sensitivity

A recent study stated: “We demonstrated for the first time reduced neuronal responses in mucosal IBS biopsies to an IBS mediator cocktail.”  That is, when they gave a mix of pro-inflammatory substances to the IBS gut wall they were surprised to find a less strong reaction than compared to the control of normal, non-IBS gut wall.

See the abstract for this study for more information.

We have a forum thread about irritable bowel syndrome.
