Certain Bacteria Within Gut Microbiome May Halt Inflammation Naturally, Study Says
Bacteria naturally present in our gut may be central for reversing inflammation detected in gut inflammatory diseases, such as inflammatory bowel disease (IBD). That finding was reported in the study “NLRP12 attenuates colon inflammation by maintaining colonic microbial diversity and promoting protective commensal bacterial growth,” which was published in the journal Nature Immunology. Researchers at the UNC Lineberger Comprehensive Cancer Center discovered that human patients suffering from ulcerative colitis, one of the most common types of IBD, carry significant lower levels of a protein called NLRP12
