01 October 2014 – New research from the University of Chicago, shows that rodents such as mice have a specific self-defence mechanism in their stomachs that gets activated only when mice get sick. These findings are interesting to researchers because they can potentially be used to help humans suffering from Crohn’s disease. When animals get sick they reduce food & water intake to preserve energy, but this can speed up infection and make matters worst. However, research shows that mice produce a sugar L-fucose, which cannot be used for energy creation, but serves as a coating for the intestines, in essence protecting the animal from bacterial attacks!
