Inflammation in the gut may lead to the proliferation of unhealthy gut flora

Editor's Comment: This piece of research directly supports Martin Pall's hypothesis that the production of excess nitric oxide is the basic mechanism behind ME/CFS. According to Pall, the symptoms of ME/CFS and other multi-system illnesses can be explained by a vicious cycle of inflammation created by nitric oxide and its breakdown products. This study also provides an explanation for the gut flora abnormalities and subsequent gastrointestinal problems commonly experienced by people with ME/CFS, IBS, autism, and fibromyalgia.

Host-derived nitrate boosts growth of E. coli in the inflamed gut.

Abstract

Changes in the microbial community structure are observed in individuals with intestinal inflammatory disorders. These changes are often characterized by a depletion of obligate anaerobic bacteria, whereas the relative abundance of facultative anaerobic Enterobacteriaceae increases. The mechanisms by which the host response shapes the microbial community structure, however, remain unknown. We show that nitrate generated as a by-product of the inflammatory response conferred a growth advantage to the commensal bacterium Escherichia coli in the large intestine of mice. Mice deficient in inducible nitric oxide synthase did not support the growth of E. coli by nitrate respiration, suggesting that the nitrate generated during inflammation was host-derived. Thus, the inflammatory host response selectively enhances the growth of commensal Enterobacteriaceae by generating electron acceptors for anaerobic respiration.

The key statement from the authors is "We show that nitrate generated as a by-product of the inflammatory response"

The key is "inflammatory response" which is now well established in ME/CFS.
