IBS affects up to 25% of the world population and roughly one in five Americans. It is caused by an inflammatory reaction in the intestines, often triggered by stress, and results in a change to gut microflora. These mechanisms and other new discoveries about the brain-gut relationship were presented to a packed room of more than 500 attendees.

"Probiotics show promise for manipulating gut microflora," predicated Stephen M. Collins of McMaster University, Canada concluding his presentation, 'The Influence of Commensally Bacteria on the Gut-Brain Axis.' Probiotics are appealing for IBS sufferers since they are not drugs, have no side effects and can help maintain intestinal balance.

Other presentations included: "Stress and brain-gut interactions in IBS," by Shin Fukudo (Tohoku University, Japan); "Intestinal inflammation and motor function," by Hiroshi Ozaki (University of Tokyo); "Effect of stress-related peptides on colonic motility," by Shigeru Yamato (International Medical Center of Japan, Konodai Hospital); "Probiotics and IBS," by Eamonn M. Quigley (Cork University, Ireland); "Stress and intestinal microbiota," by Michael T. Bailey (Ohio State University); and "IBS: medicine and probiotics," by Mitsuhisa Kawai (Yakult Central Institute for Microbiologic
