  • Infection results not only just immune activation but also increased intestinal permeability or leaky gut along with alterations of intestinal bacteria or dysbiosis. Such intestinal changes can results in passage of potentially noxious substances/signals across the placenta to the developing fetus.
  • These chemicals transferred to fetus and its developing brain may include maternal antibodies as a result of infection, abnormal neurochemical signals due to altered brain-gut-bacteria communications in mother, absorbed bacterial toxic products with their antibodies as well as potentially noxious semi-digested food products.

Enteric nervous system or second brain is more susceptible to mitochondrial dysfunction than brain

  • Nervous system of the gut also known as enteric nervous system is susceptible to mitochondrial dysfunction even more than the brain and is consistent with increased prevalence of gastrointestinal symptoms in patients with primary inherited mitochondrial disorders.
  • Not all regions of the gut and enteric nervous system or the “Second Brain” are equally affected during illness, a phenomenon seen in the central nervous system as well.
