IBD Patients’ Gut Microbiome Suffers Huge Shifts Throughout Disease Course, Study Shows
The gut microbiome of people with inflammatory bowel disease (IBD) fluctuates more compared to those of healthy individuals. These findings suggest that therapies targeting some of these alterations within the gut microbes may prove beneficial to IBD patients. The study, “Dynamics of the human gut microbiome in inflammatory bowel disease,” was published in the journal Nature Microbiology.
