Women with Polycystic Ovary Syndrome Have Less Bacterial Diversity in Gut

Women who have polycystic ovary syndrome (PCOS), a common hormone condition that contributes to infertility and metabolic problems, such as diabetes and heart disease, tend to have less diverse gut bacteria than women who do not have the condition, according to researchers at University of California San Diego School of Medicine, in collaboration with colleagues at Poznan University of Medical Sciences in Poland and San Diego State University.

Dietary Fiber Protects Against Obesity and Metabolic Syndrome, Study Finds

Researchers Reveal How Microbes Cope in Phosphorus-Deficient Tropical Soil

P-deficiency_study_ORNL_concept.JPG

A team led by the Department of Energy’s Oak Ridge National Laboratory has uncovered how certain soil microbes cope in a phosphorus-poor environment to survive in a tropical ecosystem. Their novel approach could be applied in other ecosystems to study various nutrient limitations and inform agriculture and terrestrial biosphere modeling.

Working Group Proposes New Regulations for Stool Transfers

A working group of human microbiome researchers and legal experts developed what they say is an improved regulatory process for fecal microbiota transplantation (FMT) which will result in better outcomes for patients and could serve as a model for other countries contemplating regulatory frameworks for FMT.

Real World Native Biocrusts: Microbial Metabolism

Specific compounds are transformed by and strongly associated with specific bacteria in native biological soil crust (biocrust) using a suite of tools called “exometabolomics.” Understanding how microbial communities in biocrusts adapt to harsh environments could shed light on the roles of soil microbes in the global carbon cycle.

Specific Microbes in Digestive Tract Can Boost Success for Cancer Immunotherapy

Specific strains of intestinal bacteria can improve the response rate to immunotherapy for patients being treated for advanced melanoma. Patients with a higher ratio of “beneficial” bacteria to “non-beneficial” bacteria all showed a clinical response: a reduction in tumor size.
