The comparative effectiveness of sigmoidoscopy and fecal immunochemical testing (FIT) for colorectal cancer (CRC) screening is unknown.
Although Clostridioides difficile infection (CDI) is known to involve the disruption of the gut microbiota, little is understood regarding how mucus-associated microbes interact with C. difficile. We hypothesized that select mucus-associated bacteria would promote C. difficile colonization and biofilm formation.
Hepatic encephalopathy (HE) is a serious neurological complication in patients with liver cirrhosis. Very little is known about the role of the meningeal lymphatic system in HE. We tested our hypothesis that enhancement of meningeal lymphatic drainage could decrease neuroinflammation and ameliorate HE.
A randomized study examined the use of autologous fecal microbiota transplantation in preventing weight regain after weight loss dieting.
