Vaginal birth leads to changes in the development of offsprings’ microbiomes not seen among mice born via C-section, which researchers suspect might contribute to the weight differences.
Scientists have generated a rudimentary map of the human gut microbiome, which shows the spatial organization of different microbial species.
We all know that a poor diet is unhealthy, but a new BYU study finds that stress may just as harmful to our bodies as a really bad diet.
Microbial ecology, our understanding of what determines the robustness and community dynamics of microbial consortia, and synthetic biology,
A causal link involving friendly bacteria has been found between C-section births and increased obesity risk.
Summary: Approximately 10 percent of Americans take a proton pump inhibitor drug to relieve symptoms of frequent heartburn and acid reflux.
Colorectal cancer (CRC) is the result of a series of histopathological changes starting with the appearance of outbreaks of aberrant crypts (AC) in the colon and generally leading to adenocarcinoma.
The once fringe idea is gaining traction among the scientific community.
Interest in microbiota has reached all areas of human health and disease. As a result, the therapeutic potential of probiotics has expanded.
Highlights •Results suggest an association between gut microbiota and cognitive flexibility. •Poor sleep precedes lower cognitive flexibility and altered microbiome composition. •Altered microbiome composition may associate poor sleep to adverse cognitive outcomes.
Obesity is associated with a high prevalence of mood disorders such as anxiety and depression.
Significance Spatial structure is postulated to have a powerful influence on establishing and sustaining the signaling and metabolic exchanges that define relationships among members of the gut microbiota and host.
Significance Manipulating the microbial communities associated with animals to improve host health requires a comprehensive understanding of the mechanisms driving microbiome variation, which a strict focus on host-specific factors has been insufficient in providing.
Abstract This study aimed to determine how antibiotic-driven intestinal dysbiosis impairs the development and differentiation of the digestive tract and immune organs of host animals.
Abstract Several bacterial cell wall components such as peptidoglycan and muramyl peptide are potent inducers of mammalian slow-wave sleep when exogenously administered to freely behaving animals.
Abstract While the role of intestinal microbiota is increasingly recognized in the etiology of digestive cancers, its effects on the development of cancer in other parts of the body have been little studied.
Highlights •Ganoderma lucidum polysaccharides (GLP) ameliorated low grade chronic inflammation. •GLP ameliorated non-esterified fatty acid outflux and ectopic lipid accumulation. •GLP improved systemic insulin sensitivity. •GLP changed the composition of gut microbiota.
Abstract Background Systemic lupus erythematosus, characterized by persistent inflammation, is a complex autoimmune disorder with no known cure.

Saishree Badrinarayanan: Microbes and infections might cause Alzheimer’s disease What do Herpes simplex virus type 1 (HSV1), Chlamydia and Syphilis have to do with Alzheimer’s disease?
Brigham Young University: We all know that a poor diet is unhealthy, but a new BYU study finds that stress may just as harmful to our bodies as a really bad diet.
Abstract For more than three decades it has been recognized that small amounts of vector saliva can significantly alter the infectivity of vector-borne pathogens and subsequent in vivo dynamics.
Abstract Mouse models have enabled breakthroughs in our understanding of the immune system, but it has become increasingly popular to emphasize their shortcomings when translating observations to humans.
Highlights •Systematic analysis of longevity-promoting microbial genetic variations •Colanic acid as a pro-longevity natural compound effective in different species
The GMFH editing team recommends these book selections on the topic.
CS disaccharides may enhance intestinal absorption and promote kidney function.
Abstract Background Iron deficiency is common during infancy and therefore iron supplementation is recommended.
