"When the going gets tough, the guts get leaky" presented by Linda Toresson

Chronic intestinal inflammation, dysbiosis, NSAIDs and bacterial endotoxins can result in a leaky gut (increased intestinal permeability). Recent research in people associate a leaky gut with extra-intestinal autoimmune/inflammatory conditions.

This lecture, focussing on protein-losing enteropathy, will explore:

  • How we can try to prevent a leaky gut
  • Treatment of chronic disorders associated with a leaky gut, such as chronic enteropathies and protein-losing enteropathies

Dr Toresson is currently serving as the Head of Gastroenterology Service at the Evidensia Specialist Animal Hospital, Helsingborg, Sweden and is affiliated with Helsinki University as an external researcher and post-doc with a research interest focused on the clinical aspects of gastroenterology in particular the intestinal microbiota and metabolomics, and tools to modulate the microbiome beyond antibiotics.

Dr Toresson is a member of several advisory boards and is the current president of the European Society of Comparative Gastroenterology. Her current research projects involves a longitudinal study on the effects of faecal microbiota transplantation on dogs with chronic enteropathies, and faecal bile acids and bile acid diarrhoea.
