anti-inflammatory effects of certain viruses

Dr. Kate. L. Jeffrey, associate professor of medicine at Harvard Medical School, isolated viruses from a patient’s colon surgical tissue, and found that viruses in a normal intestine had anti-inflammatory effects and contributed to a healthy gut.

Dr. Jeffrey isolated some viruses in the gut of their patients and found that these viruses in a "normal intestine had anti-inflammatory effects and contributed to a healthy gut." Other viruses had the opposite effect, thus calling for a viral balance.

Other researchers studied mice that were given viruses from healthy human colons and found they were protected from intestinal inflammation. Conversely, mice whose intestinal viruses were replaced with viruses associated with IBD exhibited exacerbated inflammation.
