Furthermore, MS patients treated with glatiramer acetate showed an increase in Bacteroidaceae, Faecalibacterium, Ruminococcus, Lactobacillaceae, Clostridium, and other members of the class Clostridiales when compared with untreated MS patients.
(17) evaluaron cambios en la MI y su entorno (concentracion de AGCC y pH) en 25 pacientes con SRIS y los compararon con un grupo de voluntarios sanos, mediante recuentos en placas de agar de diez grupos de bacterias consideradas clave dentro de la MI, entre las que se encontraban anaerobios obligados totales como Bacteroidaceae, Bifidobacterium, Clostridium y Veillonella, y anaerobios facultativos totales como Lactobacillus, Enterobacteriaceae, Enterococcus, Staphylococcus, Pseudomonas y Candida.
Several H chrysoscelis adult intestinal sequences showed homology with organisms within the Bacteroidaceae family, including Bacteroides fragilis, B.

More specifically, Bacteroidaceae family increased along with severity of liver lesions, whereas the family of Prevotellaceae and Erysipelotrichaceae decreased.
As expected [5,19], more than 85% of rRNA gene sequences belong to the phylum Firmicutes and Bacteroidetes, including the most abundant gut species, such as the family Ruminococcaceae (46.5%), Rikenellaceae (11.3%), Lachnospiraceae (10.0%), and Bacteroidaceae (6.3%).
On the other hand, bacterial strains belonging to the Bacteroidaceae family (strain S24-7) were strongly reduced in the VSL#3-protected mice, thus suggesting that those strains may have proinflammatory effects and a pathogenic role in T1D.
The MS patients with expanded disability status score (EDSS) [less than or equal to] 3.0 who received GA treatment were shown to have larger numbers of Bacteroidaceae, Ruminococcus, Lactobacillaceae, and Clostridium compared to the numbers seen in untreated patients [138].
