Newswise: Microbiome May Be Involved in Mechanisms Related to Muscle Strength in Older Adults

Microbiome May Be Involved in Mechanisms Related to Muscle Strength in Older Adults

Tufts University

New study suggests the gut microbiome has a role in mechanisms related to muscle strength in older adults. Researchers found differences in bacterial profiles of older adults with high and low physical function, bacterial and strength differences in mice colonized with fecal samples from the adults.

Periodontitis Bacteria Love Colon and Dirt Microbes

Georgia Institute of Technology

Mythbuster: The idea that bacterial collaborations within microbiomes, like in the mouth, have evolved to be generous and exclusive very much appears to be wrong. In an extensive experiment, they were possible between random microbes, and members of the same microbiome were stingy with each other.

Remodeling Unhealthful Gut Microbiomes to Fight Disease

American Chemical Society (ACS)

You are what you eat — right down to the microbiome living in your gut. Diet can affect which microbes are in the intestinal tract, and research has shown that harmful gut microbiome changes can lead to illnesses such as heart disease, obesity and cancer.

Newswise: Antibiotics Exposure Linked to Increased Colon Cancer Risk

Article ID: 717661

Antibiotics Exposure Linked to Increased Colon Cancer Risk

Johns Hopkins Medicine

In an extensive “data mining” analysis of British medical records, researchers at the Johns Hopkins Kimmel Cancer Center conclude that taking even a single course of antibiotics might boost—albeit slightly—the risk of developing colon cancer—but not rectal cancer—a decade later. The findings, reported in the August 20 issue of the journal Gut, highlight the need for judicious use of this broad category of drugs, which are frequently improperly or overprescribed, the report authors say.

Microbial Fingerprinting

Harvard Medical School

Scientists have analyzed the genetic repertoire of bacteria in the human mouth and gut The effort marks the first chapter in efforts to compile a compendium of all genes in the human microbiome Mapping the microbial genome can reveal links between bacterial genes and disease risk and could inform the development of precision therapies Analysis reveals staggering person-to-person variation in microbial gene content Unique microbial genes, specific to each person, have functions distinct from common, or shared, genes Unique genes may act as a microbe’s evolutionary organ Researchers have made the data publicly accessible at The Universe of Microbial Genes
