Microbiota, Systemic Inflammation and Cardiovascular Function
Professor Mohamad Navab

Inflammation contributes to different degrees to most if not all pathological conditions. The GI system including small intestine plays a major role in systemic inflammation and thus cardiovascular

well-being. We have reported that anti inflammatory peptides that do not get absorbed significantly and are not present in high concentrations in circulation reduce inflammation that is induced by a high

fat-high cholesterol diet (Western Diet) in pre-clinical studies. This was paralleled by reduction in atherosclerotic lesion formation. Therefore, the site of action of the peptides is likely to be the intestine.  We have observed that small intestine appears to be a major site for this effect.  One mechanism of action seems to be through the action of lysophosphatidic acid, a powerful growth promoter that has an extremely high affinity for toxic oxidized fatty acids and phospholipids.  Reduction in these toxic oxidized lipids was shown to correlate with liver SAA and circulation SAA.  The fascinating phenomena gaining strength is the effect on the intestinal microbiota. The high fat-high cholesterol diet (Western Diet) results in changes in the micro flora of the small intestine. It would be important to show the effect of the anti inflammatory peptides on reversal of the Western Diet, on systemic inflammation and on cardiovascular physiology and pathology.
