Physiology and Pathophysiology of the Digestive Tract

The group of Physiology and Pathophysiology of the Digestive Tract focuses its research activity on the functioning of the digestive tract as a whole, including the functions of secretion, motility, absorption and barrier both in healthy individuals and in the presence of disease. The application of knowledge to clinical practice is a priority for the group.

Research in digestive motility encompasses disorders of visceral sensitivity, the brain-gut axis and intestinal allergy. Research on inflammation also includes the pancreas.

We have also launched a cross-sectional research program that focuses on the role of the gut microbiota in inflammation and gut function.

Gut Microbiota

The human microbiome is the collective genomes of all microorganisms living at the multiple sites of the human body (oral cavity, skin, nasal cavity, gastrointestinal tract (GI) and vagina). Human (Homo sapiens) and their commensal microorganisms have evolved together over the last 200,000 years and have become dependent on one another. Interaction between humans and their symbiotic bacteria is essential to many aspects of normal ‘mammalian’ physiology, ranging from metabolic activity to immune homeostasis, and ecological or genetic changes that disturb this mutualism can result in disease. It reflects the evolutionary selection pressures acting at both the levels of the host and the microbial cells and has a direct profound impact on human health. This line of research aims at understanding the role of the gut microbiome in intestinal disorders using ‘omics approaches.


Our research group proposes a service-collaboration in Microbiome analysis.

Hypersensitivity and dysmotility of the gastrointestinal tract

Research has been focused on the origin and mechanisms of the disorders of digestive function. Major advancements have been achieved in relation to the diagnostic  methods to detect neuro-myopathic disorders of the digestive tract. Specifically, an overload test has been developed that increases the sensitivity of intestinal manometry to the detect small bowel motor dysfunction. Non-invasive evaluation of intestinal motility has been approached using an original program of endoluminal image analysis using computer learning techniques and automatic learning methods to videos obtained by means of capsule endoscopy. Furthermore, the possible mechanisms involved in symptoms without apparent cause have been investigated; specifically, the mechanism of abdominal distention has been identified by means of morpho-volumetric analysis of the abdominal; The effects of food and diet on gut function amnd perception in health and disease have been addressed.

Inflammatory pathways in the gut and therapeutic targets

This research programme includes five projects (supported by Spanish and European public research agencies) aimed at the investigation of the cross-talk and effects of live bacteria of the gut microbiota on the intestinal mucosa. In addition, the programme includes four clinical/physiological studies that address the potential application of new knowledge gained in basic research on inflammatory bowel diseases.

Neuro-Immuno-Gastroenterology

The irritable bowel syndrome (IBS), the group of microscopical enteritides, food allergy, gastrointestinal eosinophilopaties, and other functional disorders of the gastrointestinal tract represent more than 50% of digestive consultations. Clinical course is chronic and recurrent. However, sensitive and specific diagnostic biological markers are lacking and clinical management is suboptimal as well. Interestingly, a common finding in the intestine of these patients is the presence of barrier dysfunction, mucosal inflammation and immune activation. Moreover, this finding may be related to the onset and severity of some major clinical symptoms, particularly in IBS.

Therefore, our group pursues the detailed comprehension (genetic/gender, immunological, metabolic, cellular and molecular basis) of the mechanisms connecting environmental determinants (stress and infections) to the development of intestinal mucosal microscopical inflammation, with special focus in IBS.

Our approach includes experimental studies in animal models and humans as well, yet remains inherently translational in search for better targets helpful for the diagnosis, prevention and treatment of IBS and related disorders. In addition, preclinical and clinical assays are also being carried out.

Among the genes described, there are some related to digestive system functions, which reinforces the biological entity of irritable bowel syndrome as a digestive disease.

The international study, in which Vall d'Hebron participated, monitored patients who were hospitalized for COVID-19 for 12 months and compared their gastrointestinal symptoms with another group of patients diagnosed with other medical pathologies.

Els estudis avançaran en els camps de les malalties digestives, el VIH, la fatiga crònica, les patologies cardíaques, l’hepatitis, la diabetis i l’oftalmologia.
