Study Detail

TitleWe have performed 16S sequencing experiment on faecal samples obtained from 30 individuals (9 Crohn's disease patients, 11 ulcerative colitis (UC) patients and 10 healthy volunteers). In this study, we examined the imbalance in the gut microbiota in IBD patients compared to healthy volunteers. We find that the gut microbiota of IBD patients is less biodiverse than healthy individuals. Also, the changes are mainly in 4 most abundant phyla including Firmicutes, Bacteroidetes, Actinobacteria and Proteobacteria.

Abstract Background: Inflammatory bowel disease (IBD), is a debilitating group of chronic diseases including Crohn's Disease (CD) and ulcerative colitis (UC), which causes inflammation of the gut and affects millions of people worldwide. At different taxonomic levels, the structure of the gut microbiota is s .. [more]
