According to a September 22 2021 article in Healio, Bifidobacterium animalis subsp. lactis BB-12 in yogurt may protect patients against harmful changes in the gut microbiome as first reported in Nutrients.

“ If one picks a well proven probiotic, they can expect to see important changes such as short chain fatty acid and microbiome protection,” Daniel Merenstein, MD, from the department of family medicine, Georgetown University Medical Center, told Healio Gastroenterology. Dr. Merenstein based this on a 7 - day study of 42 patients, measuring “fecal levels of short-chain fatty acid and bacterial composition”.

Some species of gut bacteria support, others resist weight loss

In a September 16 2021 Science Focus report, Seattle’s Institute for Systems Biology lead author Dr Christian Diener is quoted saying “your gut microbiome can help or cause resistance to weight loss and this opens up the possibility to try to alter the gut microbiome to impact weight loss.”

Dr. Diener’s assertions are based on a study of 5,000 dieters with a focus of 105 individuals and a control group, collecting blood and stool samples from the participants, and studying their genetic material. The study found that specific gut bacteria in each group were resistant, while others supported weight loss. In the Science Focus article, Dr. Diener concludes that “the gut microbiome is a major player in modulating whether a weight loss intervention will have success or not.”

Study of common medicine on gut bacteria shows reduced efficacy

Common medications can accumulate in gut bacteria, says a new study reported September 08 2021 in Medical Express. Research on the subject was conducted by Medical Research Council (MRC) Toxicology Unit at the University of Cambridge and the European Molecular Biology Laboratory (EMBL) in Germany. The building up of drugs in our gut bacteria can alter bacterial function and reduce the drug’s effectiveness.

15 common drugs were combined and tested with 25 different gut bacteria to see how they interacted. The researchers found that the drug accumulated in the gut bacteria demonstrated some signs of reduction in the availability of the drug to the rest of the human body. It is believed that the accumulation altered bacterial function, believed to be linked to side-effects. The research was first reported in Nature.

According to a July 12, 2021 Market and Research report, the global microbiome market reached a value of nearly $4,977.2 million in 2020, having increasing at a compound annual growth rate (CAGR) of 12.6% since 2015. The market is expected to grow at a CAGR of 12.7% from 2020 to reach $9,061.0 million in 2025.

The human microbiome market is segmented by type into microbial drugs and fecal microbiota transplantation (FMT) with microbial drugs accounting for 70% of the total. Asia-Pacific was the largest region in the global microbiome market, accounting for 37.2% share of the total in 2020, according to Market and Research.

The global microbiome market is expected to reach $15,554.8 million in 2030, at a CAGR of 11.4%.
