DISCOVERY: Nature Med Study Connects Gut Microbes with Biomarkers of Disease

DISCOVERY: Nature Med Gut Study Connects Microbes with Biomarkers of Disease

A large-scale international study using metagenomics and blood chemical profiling discovered a panel of 15 gut microbes that are closely associated with lower risks of common conditions such as obesity and type 2 diabetes. Some of the identified gut microbes are so novel that they have not yet been named.Read …

Leaky Gut and Gut Dysfunction Likely Connected to Severe COVID-19

leaky gut and COVID-19

People infected with COVID-19 experience a wide range of symptoms and severity, including high fevers and respiratory problems. However, new research shows that when the virus attacks the gastrointestinal tract, it may increase the severity of the viral infection. The research review, published in mBio, suggests that gut dysfunction andRead …

Fructose Alters Gut Microbiota and Worsens Colitis

Diet remains an important part of disease prevention and management, and a new study suggests that consumption of fructose may worsen intestinal inflammation common to inflammatory bowel diseases (IBD). Led by David Montrose, PhD, of the Renaissance School of Medicine at Stony Brook University, the study is currently published earlyRead …

Discovery of the Week: Novel Antibody Found in Non-Celiac Gluten Sensitive People

celiac non-celiac gluten sensitivity

A new study of the antibodies produced by people with gluten sensitivity may lead to a better way to detect the condition and treat it. Until recently, many doctors often dismissed the complaints of people who claimed to be sensitive to foods containing gluten but did not have celiac disease,Read …

How Does Eating Organically Grown Food Affect The Gut-Microbiome?

An apple a day … yes, we all know, keeps the doc away. But how does eating an organically grown apple versus a conventionally grown apple affect the body’s microbiome? A new study, published in Frontiers of Microbiology, aimed to find out. The results showed the bacterial composition and microbialRead …
