Gene Mutations Can Stop Good Gut Bacteria from Easing Crohn’s Disease
Crohn’s disease patients with certain gene mutations may not benefit from normally helpful bacteria in their guts, new research published in the journal Science revealed. The new insights may alter how clinical trials are performed and lead to more effective probiotic treatments for patients with Crohn’s disease. Researchers have known for some time that the gut microbiome — the bacterial flora of our intestines — impacts the immune responses, and much effort has been put into exploring the effects of beneficial bacteria through added probiotics for patients with gut problems. Patients with Crohn’s disease have an altered composition of the gut microbiome, a condition called dys
