BACKGROUND The global alteration of the gut microbial community (dysbiosis) plays an important role in the pathogenesis of inflammatory bowel diseases (IBDs). However, bacterial species that characterize dysbiosis in IBD remain unclear. In this study, we assessed the alteration of the fecal microbiota profile in patients with Crohn's disease (CD) using 16S rRNA sequencing. SUMMARY Fecal samples from 10 inactive CD patients and 10 healthy individuals were subjected to 16S rRNA sequencing. The… CONTINUE READING
