Summary of "Precision Engineers: Bacteriophages Modulate the Gut Microbiome and Metabolome."

The precise and rational manipulation of the gut microbiome may enable new therapies for gut health and disease. In this issue of Cell Host & Microbe, Hsu et al. (2019) reveal that bacteriophage predation reduces target bacteria and results in cascading interactions that alter non-target species and the gut metabolome.

Microplastics induce intestinal inflammation, oxidative stress, and disorders of metabolome and microbiome in zebrafish.

Microplastics (MPs) can be ingested by a variety of species and mainly accumulate in the gut. However, the consequences of MPs exposure in the gut are largely unknown. Here we evaluated the impacts of...

Individualized metabolomics: opportunities and challenges.

The goal of advancing science in health care is to provide high quality treatment and therapeutic opportunities to patients in need. This is especially true in precision medicine, wherein the ultimate...

Gut microbiome and cancer immunotherapy.

Microbiome is becoming crucial in that the balance between human health and disease can be mediated by the gut microbiome. The gut microbiome can modulate the host immune system both locally and syste...

Virome Diversity Correlates with Intestinal Microbiome Diversity in Adult Monozygotic Twins.

The virome is one of the most variable components of the human gut microbiome. Within twin pairs, viromes have been shown to be similar for infants, but not for adults, indicating that as twins age an...

The unique composition of Indian gut microbiome, gene catalogue and associated faecal metabolome deciphered using multi-omics approaches.

Metagenomic studies carried out in the past decade have led to an enhanced understanding of the gut microbiome in human health, however, the Indian gut microbiome is not well explored yet. We analysed...

Response of the Gut Microbiome and Circulating Metabolome to Diet in Children: Ancillary Study to KIDFIT (NCT03405246)

This is an ancillary study to KIDFIT (NCT03405246). KIDFIT tests whether preschool-age children, born to overweight or obese mothers, respond to a healthy DASH diet intervention with bette...

The Effects of Type 1 Diabetes Mellitus and Increased Weight on Gut Microbiome and Urine Metabolome Profiles in Children

This study employs a cross-sectional design to profile the gut microbiome and urine metabolome in overweight/obese children with type 1 diabetes (T1D).

Plant Based Diet, Ethnicity, and the Gut Microbiome

Samples will be collected to determine human genetic variation, fecal and oral microbial communities, and metabolome products. Several evolutionary and ecological diversity metrics will be...

Effect of Antibiotics on Gut Microbiome and Plasma Metabolome

In recent years it has been observed that the gut microbiome can produce metabolites into systemic circulation and thus have important health effects even outside the gastrointestinal syst...

Environmental Health Effects on Your Physiology

This study evaluates the associations between exposure to air pollutants, green space, and the gut microbiome and metabolome.

Medical and Biotech [MESH] Definitions

Metal devices for fastening together two or more parts of dental prostheses for stabilizing or retaining them by attachment to abutment teeth. For a precision attachment for a partial denture DENTURE PRECISION ATTACHMENT is available.

All of the microbial organisms that naturally exist within the GASTROINTESTINAL TRACT.

A precision device used for attaching a fixed or removable partial denture to the crown of an abutment tooth or a restoration. One type is the intracoronal attachment and the other type is the extracoronal attachment. It consists of a female portion within the coronal portion of the crown of an abutment and a fitted male portion attached to the denture proper. (Jablonski, Dictionary of Dentistry, 1992, p85; from Boucher's Clinical Dental Terminology, 4th ed, p264)

The dynamic collection of metabolites which represent a cell's or organism's net metabolic response to current conditions.

Elimination of ENVIRONMENTAL POLLUTANTS; PESTICIDES and other waste using living organisms, usually involving intervention of environmental or sanitation engineers.
