Glup: Aventuras en el canal alimentario


Mary Roach nos lleva a un viaje inolvidable… a través del tubo digestivo, esa parte basic de nuestro cuerpo que a veces se convierte en un tabú.

¿Por qué los angeles comida crujiente nos resulta tan atractiva?
¿Por qué es tan difícil encontrar palabras para defi nir sabores y olores?
¿Por qué el estómago no se digiere a sí mismo?
¿Cuánto se puede comer antes de “explotar”?
¿Puede matar el estreñimiento?
¿Mató a Elvis…?

Lleno de curiosidades y anécdotas, pasearemos entre laboratorios de pruebas de sabor de alimentos para mascotas, trasplantes fecales, o viajaremos a un estómago en vivo para observar qué ocurre allí con los angeles comida. De l. a. mano de Roach viajamos por el mundo para conocer asesinos, científicos locos, exorcistas (que han llegado a administrar agua bendita rectal) o terroristas…

Al igual que todos los libros de Roach, Glup trata no solo de cuerpos humanos, sinode seres humanos.

Sample text

Oral tolerance is thus a functional manifestation of a more general phenomenon of suppression of immune responses in the intestinal tissues. This tendency of the intestines to suppress is due to the presence of very strong regulatory pathways and high concentrations of regulatory molecules derived from these cells within the intestines. Regulatory cells that have been shown to be present in normal intestine and highly relevant to the development of IBD include natural T regulatory cells (CD4-positive, CD25-positive T cells), induced T regulatory cells, T regulatory 1 cells, Th3 cells, B cells, and possibly NKT cells and CD8-positive T cells.

[PMID: 15220916] Immunologic Factors It remains incompletely understood how the previously noted genetically imposed risk factors result in the development of IBD.

Finally, animal models have also revealed the importance of regulatory (anti-inflammatory) pathways and T regulatory cells, in particular, in both the prevention and resolution of IBD. Given the importance of CD4-positive T helper cell polarization in IBD pathogenesis, some discussion of this topic is appropriate (Figure 2–3). T cells leave the thymus and migrate into peripheral tissues, such as the intestines, as naïve (antigeninexperienced) cells. As such, they are considered to be Th0 cells without a bias for cytokine production other than the ability to secrete IL-2 upon stimulation through their antigen-specific receptor, the T-cell receptor (TCR), together with a co-stimulatory signal (so-called signal 2) that is classically delivered by cell surface molecules, such as CD80 or CD86 on APCs, to CD28 on the T cell (see Figure 2–3).
