Researchers from Moscow University have discovered bacteria in the intestine that determine the accumulation and processing of toxins in the blood of people with renal insufficiency.

As is well known, the gut microbiome greatly influences a person’s life. And now a team of researchers headed by Professor Yegor Plotnikov has proven that bacteria that live in the human intestine are the source of many uremic toxins.

Uremia- is a serious condition characterized by the accumulation of various toxic compounds in the body. They usually occur due to acute or chronic kidney failure. An increase in the content of uremic toxins in the blood with kidney damage leads to a deterioration in the health of patients and the development of other diseases.

During the experiments they conducted, researchers discovered the presence of two types of bacteria in the blood of patients with kidney failure – the first type works to synthesize a large amount of harmful substances and the second type helps the body process it.

The researchers add, by reducing the number of dangerous bacteria in the gut microbiome, the concentration of pathological metabolites in the blood can be reduced. Increasing the amount of “good” bacteria, for example, with nutritional supplements, can reduce the course of kidney disease and lower the level of uremia in patients.

As is known, at present it is possible to get rid of toxins only through the process of dialysis, that is, cleaning the blood using an external device. Therefore, the discovery of Moscow University scientists, will allow to invent new methods of treating and rehabilitating patients. For this, additional study is required to determine how it affects the gut microbiome.
