Metagenomics: the role of the microbiome in cardiovascular diseases.


PURPOSE OF REVIEW The human oral and intestinal microbiota interact with the host through poorly understood metabolic pathways. Investigation of such complex ecosystems and interactions has been difficult. In this paper, we assess the current evidence supporting the role of the microbiota as a significant determinant of cardiovascular disease risk. RECENT… (More)
