DIFFERENCES IN COMPOSITION OF GUT MICROBIOTA IN WOMEN WITH AND WITHOUT HYPEREMESIS GRAVIDARUM
TLDR
In hyperemesis-positive women, gut microbiota displayed higher alpha diversity than hyperemises-negative women, and the consequence of the absence or presence of H. pylori on the metagenomics of intestinal microbiota was studied.

Metabolic Syndrome and Altered Gut Microbiota in Mice Lacking Toll-Like Receptor 5
TLDR
Results support the emerging view that the gut microbiota contributes to metabolic disease and suggest that malfunction of the innate immune system may promote the development of metabolic syndrome.
A Metagenomic Approach to Characterization of the Vaginal Microbiome Signature in Pregnancy
TLDR
This intergroup comparison using rigorous standardized sampling protocols and analytical methodologies provides robust initial evidence that the vaginal microbial 16S rRNA gene catalogue uniquely differs in pregnancy, with variance of taxa across vaginal subsite and gestational age.
