Figures and Tables from this paper

Plantain flour: A potential anti-obesity ingredient for intestinal flora regulation and improved hormone secretion

It was found that UPF supplementation could lower the insulin levels of the obese rats and had a positive impact on gut microbiota, decreasing the relative abundances of Blautia, Parasutterella and Fusicatenibacter which were closely related to obesity.

The Firmicutes/Bacteroidetes Ratio: A Relevant Marker of Gut Dysbiosis in Obese Patients?

It is currently difficult to associate the Firmicutes/Bacteroidetes ratio with a determined health status and more specifically to consider it as a hallmark of obesity.

Profile of the gut microbiota of adults with obesity: a systematic review

Differences in profile of gut microbiota between individuals with obesity and individuals with normal weight are evaluated to help in advances of the diagnosis and treatment of obesity.

‘Pera’ Orange and ‘Moro’ Blood Orange Juice Improves Oxidative Stress and Inflammatory Response Biomarkers and Modulates the Gut Microbiota of Individuals with Insulin Resistance and Different Obesity Classes

Regular orange juice intake can be associated with a reduction in oxidative stress and inflammatory response, in addition to modulating gut microbiota.

Species-targeted sorting and cultivation of commensal bacteria from the gut microbiome using flow cytometry under anaerobic conditions

Targeted cell-sorting under anaerobic conditions is a promising tool that gives the opportunity to quickly analyze microbial populations, and can be used to sort EOS and/or under-represented strains of interest using specific antibodies, thus opening new avenues for culture experiments.


Facial bone is thin: lateral incisors have the most significant bone thickness, followed by central incisor, then canines with the most negligible bone thickness among the anterior maxillary teeth.



Quantitative differences in intestinal Faecalibacterium prausnitzii in obese Indian children

The finding of increased numbers of F. prausnitzii in the faeces of obese children in south India adds to the growing information on alterations in faecal microbiota in obesity.

Differences in gut microbiota composition between obese and lean children: a cross-sectional study

The authors' findings corroborate a significant difference in the gut microbiota composition of important bacterial species between obese and lean children and could offer a new approach to manage childhood obesity and associated disorders.

Microbiota and SCFA in Lean and Overweight Healthy Subjects

The results contradict previous reports with regard to the contribution of various bacterial groups to the development of obesity and this issue remains controversial.

Akkermansia muciniphila and improved metabolic health during a dietary intervention in obesity: relationship with gut microbiome richness and ecology

A. muciniphila is associated with a healthier metabolic status and better clinical outcomes after CR in overweight/obese adults, and the interaction between gut microbiota ecology and A. muc iniphila warrants further investigation.

Microbial ecology: Human gut microbes associated with obesity

It is shown that the relative proportion of Bacteroidetes is decreased in obese people by comparison with lean people, and that this proportion increases with weight loss on two types of low-calorie diet.

Cross-talk between Akkermansia muciniphila and intestinal epithelium controls diet-induced obesity

Substantial insight is provided into the intricate mechanisms of bacterial regulation of the cross-talk between the host and gut microbiota and provides a rationale for the development of a treatment that uses this human mucus colonizer for the prevention or treatment of obesity and its associated metabolic disorders.

Obesity alters gut microbial ecology.

Analysis of the microbiota of genetically obese ob/ob mice, lean ob/+ and wild-type siblings, and their ob/+ mothers, all fed the same polysaccharide-rich diet, indicates that obesity affects the diversity of the gut microbiota and suggests that intentional manipulation of community structure may be useful for regulating energy balance in obese individuals.

An obesity-associated gut microbiome with increased capacity for energy harvest

It is demonstrated through metagenomic and biochemical analyses that changes in the relative abundance of the Bacteroidetes and Firmicutes affect the metabolic potential of the mouse gut microbiota and indicates that the obese microbiome has an increased capacity to harvest energy from the diet.

Type 2 diabetes mellitus (T2DM) and obesity represent two of the biggest global health challenges of this century and are associated with significant comorbidities and healthcare costs. Although

The Microbiota of the Gut in Preschool Children With Normal and Excessive Body Weight

It is found that the gut microbiota differed among preschool children with obesity/overweight compared with children with BMI within the normal range, and concentration of Bifidobacterium was inversely correlated to alanine aminotransferase (ALT) in obese/ overweight children.
