London: Scientists have designed a new "beneficial bacteria" that produces a human protein known for its anti-inflammatory proprieties.Using non-pathogenic bacteria found naturally in the intestine and dairy food, researchers from Inserm and Inra, France have designed modified bacteria to produce Elafin, a human protein which is known to fight intestinal inflammation.This discovery could be useful for individuals suffering from chronic inflammatory diseases such as Crohn`s disease or ulcerative colitis.Scientists believe that administering this protein directly into the intestine could protect against inflammatory attacks and restore intestinal equilibrium and its functions.Although Elafin is found naturally in the intestine to protect it against attacks, it disappears in patients suffering from IBDs.
