A deleterious cascade: chronic stress response, intestinal microbiology and food craving

Gustav F. Jirikowsk Oman 2019 speakerProf. Gustav F. Jirikowski from Friedrich Schiller University Jena, Germany will join Oman Middle East Congress 2019 which will be held on March 4-6, 2019 in Muscat, Oman to present his study on "A deleterious cascade: chronic stress response, intestinal microbiology and food craving".

 

Short summary: "Stress response activates the hypothalamo-pituitary- adrenal axis. Glucocorticoids liberated from the adrenal cortex stimulate mitochondrial glucose metabolism resulting in increased oxidative stress. The immune suppressive actions of adrenal steroids impair immunological control of the intestinal microbiota. Metabolic products of microorganisms affect the nervous system".
