TitleAntibiotic-mediated gut microbiome perturbation accelerates development of type 1 diabetes in NOD mice
Study TypeOther
Abstract The early life microbiome plays important roles in host immunological and metabolic development. Because type 1 diabetes (T1D) incidence has been increasing substantially in recent decades, we hypothesized that early-life antibiotic use alters gut microbiota that predisposes to disease. Using NOD mi .. [more]
