In a poster presentation titled, Linaclotide attenuates visceral organ crosstalk: importance of guanylate cyclase c (GC-C) activation in reversing colonic hypersensitivity induced by urinary bladder hyperpermeability (poster presentation Tu1602), Ehsan Mohammadi, University of Oklahoma Health Science Center, presented preclinical data in a model of colonic hypersensitivity induced by bladder injury, which suggested that oral administration of linaclotide significantly reduced this colonic hypersensitivity, as measured by visceromotor responses (abdominal contractions) to colonic distention and pERK expression (spinal nerve activation).
The Insula is correlated physiocologically to emotional and autonomic activities, therefore crises that has it origin within the insula are very specific charceterized by changes in blood pressure, cardiac frequency, anxiety, as well as in visceromotor and sensitive control and function.
