Changing dynamics of gut microbiome in IBD patients

Dr. Janst Jansson and colleagues of the Pacific Northwest National Laboratory determined the composition of the gut microbiomes in over 100 patients with inflammatory bowel disease (IBD) in three month intervals to determine how these microbiomes differ over time.

They found that IBD patients experienced erratic fluctuations in their gut microbiomes when compared to healthy individuals, which offers a valid way to monitor IBD patients. These fluctations appear to be correlated with the level of medications used by the patients.

As studies like these tend to do, it calls for medication- specific studies of positive and/or negative influences of each medication on the human gut microbiome. It may answer questions such as, "how are medications affecting these gut microbiome fluctuations?"
