Diseases associated with alterations of gut microbiota composition1
Irritable bowel syndrome (IBS)1
One of the most common gastrointestinal (GI) disorders and the bacterial role has been largely investigated. Studies suggested a weakness of the epithelial barrier as a result of a loss of microbial richness.
Inflammatory Bowel Disease (IBD)1
Refers to chronic and relapsing inflammatory conditions of the gastrointestinal tract including ulcerative colitis (UC) and Crohn’s disease (CRD). Studies suggest that gut microbial imbalances contribute to disease severity.
