Microbiome linked to depression in a groundbreaking Benelux study

This article is republished with kind permission from Biovox. The original article can be found here.

The microbiome had been at the forefront of a lot of research and news in the past few years. Now, a new study published in Nature Microbiology has linked specific microbiome changes with depression and quality of life. The largest of its kind to-date, the research was made possible by over 2000 participants from the Flemish Gut Flora Project and the Dutch LifeLines DEEP project. The results may lead to novel therapies for people suffering from this debilitating mental illness.

Harnessing the power of RNA for a healthy gut microbiome

I was a scientist at Los Alamos National Lab in the US when I identified a science-based personalized diet that completely cured my early onset arthritis. I realized that the gut microbiome would play a central role in personalized nutrition and redirected all my science projects towards it. We desperately needed better technology for analysing the gut microbiome and metatranscriptomics offers the best value. It is better than 16S or metagenomic sequencing in two important aspects:

The gut-brain axis: a new leverage to improve brain conditions

Recent progress in science pinpoints that the gut-brain axis may be modulated by a class of probiotics called psychobiotics. These progresses shed lights on a new area of research and new ways to treat a broad spectrum of complex central nervous system diseases.

A microbiome solution for type 1 diabetes?

This article is republished with kind permission from Biovox. The original article can be found here.

Few things unite us the way trying to help a sick child does. Children living with the burden of type 1 diabetes (T1D) is just such a case. The desire to help young patients has galvanized a global effort, the TEDDY study, to understand what causes the disorder and pave the way for effective interventions. A number of analyses emerging from TEDDY are now bringing into focus the role of the microbiome in T1D. We now ask the question: could the microbiome be the key to intercepting and preventing T1D?
