Journal Article
D'Angelo, F., Baldelli, V., Halliday, N., Pantalone, P., Polticelli, F., Fiscarelli, E., …Rampioni, G. (2018). Identification of FDA-approved drugs as antivirulence agents targeting the pqs quorum sensing system of Pseudomonas aeruginosa. Antimicrobial Agents and Chemotherapy, 62(11), doi:10.1128/aac.01296-18

The long-term use of antibiotics has led to the emergence of multi-drug-resistant bacteria. A promising strategy to combat bacterial infections aims at hampering their adaptability to the host environment without affecting growth. In this context, th...

A low FODMAP diet is associated with changes in the microbiota and reduction in breath hydrogen but not colonic volume in healthy subjects (2018)
Journal Article
Sloan, T. J., Jalanka, J., Major, G. A. D., Krishnasamy, S., Pritchard, S., Abdelrazig, S., …Spiller, R. C. (2018). A low FODMAP diet is associated with changes in the microbiota and reduction in breath hydrogen but not colonic volume in healthy subjects. PLoS ONE, 13(7), doi:10.1371/journal.pone.0201410. ISSN 1932-6203

Background & aims Ingestion of poorly digested, fermentable carbohydrates (fermentable oligo-, di-, mono-saccharides and polyols; FODMAPs) have been implicated in exacerbating intestinal symptoms and the reduction of intake with symptom alleviatio...
