Neonatal Microbiome Validity Study

2016-01-15 13:38:24 | BioPortfolio


This is a validation study to compare proposed field collection methods with a gold standard collection technique for microbiome analysis of stool and breast milk samples.


In order to conduct a future study of the gut microbiome in a population living in a rural, low income setting, this validation study will be conducted to verify the validity of our proposed field collection methods for stool and breast milk samples. We will compare the microbial diversity and abundance in the biologic samples using various proposed field collection methods to an immediately frozen sample. The proposed field collection methods are feasible for use in a community-based study in a low income setting with limited access to cold storage.

Medical and Biotech [MESH] Definitions

Transfer of GASTROINTESTINAL MICROBIOTA from one individual to another by infusion of donor FECES to the upper or lower GASTROINTESTINAL TRACT of the recipient.

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

A species of Bifidobacterium present in the human GUT MICROBIOTA. It is used as a PROBIOTIC.

The full collection of microbes (bacteria, fungi, virus, etc.) that naturally exist within a particular biological niche such as an organism, soil, a body of water, etc.

Changes in quantitative and qualitative composition of MICROBIOTA. The changes may lead to altered host microbial interaction or homeostatic imbalance that can contribute to a disease state often with inflammation.
