Can Yogurt Aid the Battle
Against Depression?
By feeding mice a probiotic bacteria found in
yogurt, UVA researchers were able to do
an amazing thing-reverse the animals'
depression-like symptoms. The researchers
are optimistic that this discovery will hold true
in people. "It would be magical just to change
your diet, to change the bacteria you take, and
fix your health-and your mood," says lead
researcher Alban Gaultier, PhD.
The role of the gut
microbiome-the bacteria
that live inside us-has
been of tremendous interest to researchers studying
depression and other health
conditions. Gaultier, of the UVA
Department of Neuroscience,
set out to see if he could find a concrete link between depression
and gut health: Looking at the gut microbiome before and after
mice were subjected to stress, Gaultier's team found that the major
change was the loss of the bacteria Lactobacillus.
While there is no harm in people with depression eating
yogurt-assuming they have no reasons to avoid dairy-people
receiving treatment for depression should not stop taking their
medications without consulting their physicians. The researchers
noted more studies are needed. Gaultier plans to first examine
the effects of Lactobacillus on depression in patients who have
multiple sclerosis.

That's how many driving miles have been saved by the telehealth center at UVA Health System.
The UVA Karen S. Rheuban Center for Telehealth has facilitated more than 50,000 patient
encounters since its inception 20 years ago. Telehealth (or telemedicine) harnesses the power
of technology to connect healthcare specialists with providers and patients at sites hundreds
and even thousands of miles away. Students at four schools in Southwest Virginia are the latest to benefit. UVA is helping to establish school-based telehealth sites so children with special
health needs, ranging from asthma to autism, have access to "virtual care teams."
"As the prevalence of autism has grown dramatically in the last decade, rural communities
have had serious challenges addressing the need," says Ethan Long, executive director for the
Virginia Institute of Autism. "By leveraging our partnership with UVA Telemedicine, we're able
Drs. Karen Rheuban and Andrew
to extend our reach and provide high-quality, evidence-based services to places that have never

had access to that level of care and support."
The UVA telehealth center is named in honor of one of its co-founders, a pediatric cardiologist. Karen Rheuban, MD, created the center
so her patients wouldn't have to travel the sometimes hundreds of miles to access the specialized heart care they need.
