Researchers at the University of Maryland School of Medicine have identified 26 species of bacteria in the human gut microbiota that appear to be linked to obesity and related metabolic complications.
Mice carrying a set of friendly microbes that are usually found in humans fail to develop a proper immune system and are left susceptible to illness as a result.
A study of the microbiome of the human nose provides clues to the cause of a chronic sinus condition and potential strategy for a cure.
Chronic Rhinosinusitis (CRS), an inflammation of the nasal and paranasal sinuses lasting over 12 weeks, lands more than 500,000 in the emergency room in the U.S. annually. Now, a new study attempts to crack the case of what is causing it.
