How probiotic protects against pathogen infection in the gut

A collaborative study by researchers on the Norwich Research Park has indicated how certain probiotic bacteria can help reduce infection by pathogenic E. coli. Previous clinical studies have suggested that certain probiotic bacteria could prevent pathogenic bacteria from infecting the human gut. In particular, one common type of bacteria found naturally in our gut, the […]

Study points to how gut bacteria evolved host specificity

7 December 2016 The microbiota, the complex microbial community that we host in our gut, influences a number of different processes in our bodies, including metabolism and immunity. A change in the composition of the gut microbiota has been associated with a number of diseases. As we learn more about how these are linked, new […]

New Study reveals unusual enzyme activity of gut bacteria

In an exciting new study published yesterday in the journal Nature Communications GHFS Research Leader Dr Nathalie Juge and her team have revealed an unusual enzymatic activity in gut bacteria Ruminococcus gnavus. Below Nathalie blogs about the study, and how it could ultimately offer insights beyond correlations between Inflammatory Bowel Disease (IBD) and changes in […]
