Reasons underlying the individual differences in the clinical manifestations of inflammatory bowel diseases (IBD) and the mechanism by which the host screens the intestinal microbiota remain unclear. The presence of miRNA in faeces might be a potential clue into differences in gut microbiota among these patients. In this study, we analysed the differences in miRNA levels in faecal samples from 117 patients diagnosed with IBD. There was a significant difference in faecal miRNAs between healthy… CONTINUE READING
