Measures of instead specified the loss function in terms of the life potential years of life lost due to premature mortality have expectancies at various ages in standard life tables, with life been used for many years to measure the mortality burden expectancy at birth fixed at 82. These all measure the gap in years years for males (Coale and Demeny West Model Levels 26 between age at death and some arbitrary standard age before and 25, respectively, see Murray 1996), the highest observed which death is considered premature (typically 65 or 75). Health gap measures also generally require counter- years of the case until remission or death. Health state valuations are discussed in more detail cause-specific deaths multiplied by a loss function specify- later. In addition, he argues that the same disability dard for health accounting, as well as for guiding the deter- weight should be used for people of the same age in the mination of health research priorities (Baskent University same health state.

Age weights have perhaps The Burden of Disease and Mortality by Condition: Data, Methods, and Results for 2001 | 49 been the most contentious social value incorporated into large number of potential health states. Chapter 5 examines the sensitivity of the about the overall level of health associated with a multidi- burden of disease results to different age weighting choices.

Researchers have and for years of life lost due to mortality, we must define, developed a number of choice-based methods to measure measure, and numerically value time lived in nonfatal health preferences for health states (Salomon and Murray 2004). While death is not make a composite judgment about the severity distribution difficult to define, nonfatal health states are. They involve of the condition and the preference for time spent in each multiple domains of health that relate to different functions, severity level (Murray 1996). During the last three decades, the lack of population information on the severity distribu- there has been general acceptance of an approach to describ- tion of most conditions at the global and regional levels.

Complete or incomplete death ity, self-care, participation in usual activities, pain and dis- registration systems provide information about causes of comfort, anxiety and depression, and cognition and social death for almost all high-income countries and for many participation. We thus refer to disability weights and healthy countries in Europe (Eastern) and Central Asia and in years lost due to disability as shorthand terms for health Latin America and the Caribbean. Note that with this usage, disability, that sample registration systems for rural areas supplement is, states other than ideal health, may be short term or long urban death registration systems.

J Clin Invest 118:229–238 Chapter 5 Vagal Pathways for icrobiome-Brain-Gut Axis Communication Paul Forsythe, John Bienenstock, and Wolfgang A. Kunze Abstract There is now strong evidence from animal studies that gut microorgan- ism can activate the vagus nerve and that such activation plays a critical role in mediating effects on the brain and behaviour. The vagus appears to differentiate between non-pathogenic and potentially pathogenic bacteria even in the absence of overt inflammation and vagal pathways mediate signals that can induce both anxiogenic and anxiolytic effects, depending on the nature of the stimulus. Certain vagal signals from the gut can instigate an anti-inflammatory reflex with afferent signals to the brain activating an efferent response, releasing mediators including acetylcholine that, through an interaction with immune cells, attenuates inflamma- tion. This immunomodulatory role of the vagus nerve may also have consequences for modulation of brain function and mood. What is currently lacking are relevant data on the electrophysiology of the system. Certainly, important advances in our understanding of the gut-brain and microbiome- gut-brain axis will come from studies of how distinct microbial and nutritional stimuli activate the vagus and the nature of the signals transmitted to the brain that lead to differential changes in the neurochemistry of the brain and behaviour. Understanding the induction and transmission of signals in the vagus nerve may have important implications for the development of microbial-or nutrition based therapeutic strategies for mood disorders. Bienenstock (*) Pathology and Molecular Medicine, Brain Body Institute, McMaster University, St. While it contains both motor and sensory fibres, it is the main afferent pathway from the abdominal cavity to the brain. Information from the heart, lungs, pancreas, liver, stomach and intestines are delivered tonically to the brain via sensory fibres in the vagus nerve [1]. There are 30,000–80,000 vagal afferent nerves that supply the intestine with a 9:1 ratio of afferent to efferent fibres in peripheral nerve bundles [2–4]. Vagal primary afferents innervate the muscular and mucosal layers of the gut with the 5 Vagal Pathways for Microbiome-Brain-Gut Axis Communication 117 coeliac branch supplying the intestine from proximal duodenum to the distal part of the descending colon [5]. Histological and electrophysiological evidence indicates that visceral afferent endings [3] in the intestine express a diverse array of chemical and mechanosensitive receptors [2]. Vagal afferent fibres have been identified in the lamina propria of duodenal and jejunal villi, and crypts of Lieberkuhn,¨ but they do not cross the basal mem- brane to innervate the epithelial layer [5]. Thus, vagal afferents are not in a position to sense luminal nutrients directly unless they arrive intact in the lateral intercellular spaces, but are in close anatomical apposition to the basal membrane of enteroendocrine cells [6]. These fibres respond to muscle tension generated by both passive stretch and active contraction of the muscle layers [7]. This type of vagal afferent ending is found in large numbers throughout the oesophagus and gastrointestinal tract and is thought to be important for generating vagal afferent tone which has been associated with balanced interoceptive awareness and emo- tional well-being. Furthermore experimental data suggesting that changes in vis- ceral sensation can affect the perception and interpretation of external inputs [8, 9] has led to the suggestion that altered sensory vagal inputs can influence our attitude to the outside world. The anterior insular cortex is involved in interpretation of most if not all interoception, and therefore through these vagal and other inputs, repre- sents most of our subjective feelings. It is suggested that pathological changes in sensory vagal inputs may increase the risk of affective behavioural disorders. Chronic sensory vagal inputs might then act as ‘natural’ breaks for augmentation of stress-related behavioural responses via tonic modulation of the neuronal activity in the locus coeruleus and in turn the forebrain [10]. The Vagus and Behaviour Some of the earliest indication of the role of the vagus in modulating behaviour came from studies of animals exposed to endotoxin. Sickness behaviour is a term used to describe the motivational state responsible for re-organizing perceptions and actions to enable ill individuals to cope better with infection [11]. The associ- ated behaviours include lethargy, depression, anxiety, loss of appetite, sleepiness, hyperalgesia, and reduction in grooming. In contrast to the role of the vagus in mediating sickness and depressive type behaviour it is also emerging that stimulating the vagus can lead to a reduction in anxiety and depression associated behaviours. In one study, rats were exposed to vagus nerve stimulation for 30 min per day for 4 days, and were then subjected to the forced swim test, a well validated assessment of anti-depressant activity. Vagus nerve stimulation significantly reduced immobility time compared to unstimulated controls, reflective of antidepressant effects [18]. Interestingly, the vagal nerve stimulation-induced decreases in immobility were associated with increased swim- ming behaviour, which has been linked to a predominantly serotonergic mechanism of action [19]. In a subsequent controlled trial, rats received desipramine or vagal nerve stimulation for 2 h at three time points over a 24 h period, prior to undergoing the forced swim test and both treatments resulted in reduced immobility compared to saline control [20]. However, chronic vagal nerve stimulation for 1 month failed to show any behavioural alterations in rats subjected to the forced swim test or the elevated plus maze test, in contrast to treatment with a classical anti-depressant, imipramine [21]. No careful timecourse or analysis of different dose and timing schedules of stimulation appear to have been conducted. While this treatment for depression is controversial, largely due to a lack of positive sham treatment controlled clinical trials, there have been reports that vagal nerve stimulation is beneficial in at least some patients with depression and may be particularly effective with chronic treatment [23, 24]. The Vagal Anti-Inflammatory Reflex The vagus innervates tissues known to participate in immune functions and/or contain important immune elements, such as thymus, lung, liver, and gastrointes- tinal tract. Furthermore, trunks or branches of the vagus are often associated with lymph nodes that drain regions in which immune activation occurs.
