To stabilize the intestinal microflora, normalize metabolism and fight obesity, American scientists have developed a substance that stimulates the immune system. Experiments on laboratory rodents were successful, and now it remains only to create a drug based on the resulting substance.
The Body of any person always contains a large number of bacteria, the number of which exceeds even the number of all cells! Among bacteria there are both useful and harmful, pathogenic, so it is important to maintain the normal composition of this "population", in particular, in the intestine, where bacteria are present in large amounts. Violation of the composition of bacteria in the intestine or dysbacteriosis lead to negative changes in metabolism, and this, in turn, leads to obesity, diabetes and other diseases.
Experiments on mice have shown that the substance interleukin-22 is an excellent stimulator of the immune system, protecting the intestine from harmful bacteria. Now the task is to develop drugs for the normalization of metabolism on its basis.
