Gut microbiome treatment solution for every human disease?

thread
Scientists and the health communities of the Boston area are collaborating on microbiome research and development of treatments based on the research. That is the direction the medical community is headed, according to a January 05 2021 MIT News article.

MIT, Harvard University, The Broad Institute, and a number of Boston- based health organizations are weighing in on the gut health research and the treatments for every human disease. “In almost every disease context that’s been investigated, we’ve found different types of microbial communities, divergent between healthy and sick patients,” says MIT professor of biological engineering Eric Alm says. He and his team found contrasts between different types of microbial communities, making microbial related treatments for disease illness complicated.

What these sometimes divergent groups do agree on is that appropriate treatments are specific to each individual case. They hope their collaborations will lead to more concrete treatment solutions, such as the fecal transplants by companies like OpenBiome and personalized health recommendations by Viome.
