Common toothpaste ingredient may up colon cancer risk: study 31.5.2018 General News
A common antimicrobial ingredient triclosan, found in hand soaps and toothpastes, may alter gut bacteria and increase the risk of colon cancer, a study has found. The study, published in the journal Science Translational Medicine, suggests that short-time treatment with low-dose triclosan caused colonic inflammation, and exaggerated disease development of colitis and colitis-associated colon cancer in mice. "These results, for the first time, suggest that triclosan could have adverse effects on gut health," said Guodong Zhang from the University of Massachusetts Amherst in the US. Triclosan is among the most widely used antimicrobial ingredients and is found in more than 2,000 consumer products, researchers said. "Because this compound is so widely used, our study suggests that there is an urgent need to further evaluate the impact of triclosan exposure on gut health in preparation for the potential establishment of further regulatory policies," said Haixia Yang, a postdoctoral ...

'Ingestible sensor to help diagnose stomach disease' 25.5.2018 General News
MIT scientists have developed an ingestible sensor equipped with genetically engineered bacteria, that can diagnose bleeding in the stomach or other gastrointestinal problems. This "bacteria-on-a-chip" approach combines sensors made from living cells with ultra-low-power electronics that convert the bacterial response into a wireless signal that can be read by a smartphone. "By combining engineered biological sensors together with low-power wireless electronics, we can detect biological signals in the body in near real-time, enabling new diagnostic capabilities for human health applications," said Timothy Lu, an associate professor at Massachusetts Institute of Technology (MIT) in the US. In the study, published in the journal Science, the researchers created sensors that respond to heme, a component of blood, and showed that they work in pigs. They also designed sensors that can respond to a molecule that is a marker of inflammation. In the past decade, synthetic biologists have ...
