Researchers have found that the microorganisms residing in the intestines (microbiota) play a role in the development of high blood pressure in rats.
Overview Obesity is a growing epidemic. In the United States alone, 35% of adults and 17% of children are clinically obese, a condition contributing to somewhere between 100,000–400,000 deaths each year. As such, research into the factors that modulate energy intake and weight gain has become a priority, and recent findings have implicated the microbiome […]
Antibiotics are bad for bees! Most of us think of antibiotics as good things – drugs that help treat infections and keep us healthy. According to a new study published in PLOS Biology, that’s not the case for bees.
An unhealthy diet changes the composition of the gut flora and it is generally assumed that this maladaptation called “dysbiosis” triggers disease.
Leading Discussions on Key Animal Model Considerations for Studying the Microbiome
Interview with: Eran Elinav of the Weitzmann Institute of Science in Israel
Seres Therapeutics has unveiled the design of a phase 2 trial it thinks could secure FDA approval for its once-failed treatment for recurrent Clostridium difficile infection.
Microbiome refers to the collection or community of microbes.
A study conducted has found out that overuse of antibiotics is bad for humans and bees alike. Researchers from The University of Texas at Austin have done an experiment using honey bees and common antibiotics.
Beneficial bacteria may be the key to helping to reverse a cycle of gut inflammation seen in certain inflammatory bowel diseases, University of North Carolina Lineberger Comprehensive Cancer Center researchers have found.
What happens to your bacteria when you lose an hour of sleep? We hate to remind you, but you’ll be getting an hour less sleep this coming Sunday (March 12th) if you live in the US or Canada. Daylight Saving Time begins.
Jason Dyck, professor of pediatrics at the University of Alberta has found out that resveratrol is good for diabetic people. It can be part of treating diabetes.
A new therapy to treat the effects of diabetes could reside in feces from resveratrol-fed donors
Lactobacillus affects mood, anxiety in mice; researchers optimistic findings should hold true in humans.
Healthy human skin is alive with bacteria. In fact, there are more microorganisms living in and on the human body than there are human cells.
While we have long known about the existence of microbes — the tiny bacteria, fungi and archaea that live all around,
Study finds a role for randomness in the composition of the gut’s microbe populations.
Scientific evidence that the assortment of gut microbes in humans influences different and critical aspects of health is piling up: Researchers think our microbes may influence obesity, anxiety, depression, autism, cancer and gastrointestinal diseases.
Finding may lead to new microbiota-directed therapies for gastrointestinal upset and brain disorders.
