Antibiotics-driven changes in the microbiota could impact lifespan

The type of microbiome that repopulates the gut after antibiotics has the potential to reprogram the mammalian immune system with long-lasting effects including on longevity. A new study published in Cell Reports claims.

Gut microbiota transplants reverse brain aging in mice

The microbiome can be harnessed to reverse age-related brain deterioration. A new study published in Nature Aging claims.

Molecules from dying gut cells fuel bacterial growth

Chemotherapy treatment and intestinal diseases can alter the process of programmed cell death, which can lead to gastrointestinal tract's infections.

How gut microbes could contribute to cognitive impairment

Specific changes in the gut microbiota could contribute to disruptions in brain physiology and cognitive behavior. This process leads to cognitive impairment. A new study published in Cell Host & Microbe claims.

Geographic differences in gut microbes may influence resistance to infection

The ability to transfer resistance to infection suggests that the microbiota could be harnessed for therapeutic treatments. A new study published in Cell Reports claims.

Microbiota transplant may reduce future diabetes risk

A new study published in Cell Host & Microbe suggests that the transfer of gut microbes from a mother to her offsprin could reduce the risk of developing type 1 diabetes.

How the gut microbiota could affect stroke severity

A new study suggests that gut microbes could affect stroke severity or post-stroke outcome through a metabolite called TMAO.

New approach helps decipher microbial metabolism

Researchers have developed a new approach to study microbial metabolism that works by detecting microbial metabolites in diverse biological samples and trace them back to the metabolic profiles of bacteria grown in a lab dish.

Fermented food diet could increase microbiota diversity and reduce inflammation

New findings suggest that fermented foods can help countering the decreased microbiota diversity and heightened inflammation that characterize industrialized populations.

Specific microbial signature may influence response to immunotherapy in melanoma

A study published in Nature Medicine claims that the manipulation of the gut microbiota could be a new strategy to treat toxicity to combined immunotherapy.
