New cancer microbiome atlas tells tissue-resident microbes from contaminants

TCGA allows to explore the role of tissue-resident microbiota in various cancer types and identifying predictive microbial biomarkers.

Specific gut bacteria are associated with inflammatory bowel disease

Immune responses to the gut microbiota can be used as biomarkers of clinical course in IBD or as targets for the treatment or prevention of the condition.

Delivery mode influences the composition of the infant gut microbiota

The findings suggest that delivery mode, rather than birth canal exposure, has a strong influence on the composition of the infant microbiota.

Gut microbes modulate mice’s immune response during infection with malaria parasites

Modulating the gut microbiota could help to increase Plasmodium-specific immunity, thus reducing disease severity and malaria-associated mortality.

Scientists find microbial “signature” of depression

Researches have found that MDD is characterized by disturbances in the gut microbiota and may allow clinicians to better diagnose it.

Two-pronged approach may help to treat inflammatory bowel disease

A two-pronged treatment strategy — consisting of an engineered peptide and an FDA-approved drug —  could help to reduce gut inflammation.

Can gut microbes help to manage nonalcoholic fatty liver disease?

The current knowledge of the gut-liver axis in NAFLD may lead to the development of microbiota-based personalized approaches for managing the condition.

How gut bacteria could help to rebuild the immune system

A study published in Nature suggests new approaches to improve BMTs as well as treatments for immune-mediated diseases by regulating the gut microbiota.

More clues link gut microbes with multiple sclerosis

People with active multiple sclerosis have high levels of particular gut antibodies, called immunoglobulin A (IgA), in the central nervous systems.

Gut microbes may protect against radiation-induced injury

Researches suggest that Lachnospiraceae and Enterococcaceae, as well as bacterial metabolites such as propionate can contribute to radioprotection.
