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.
Several H chrysoscelis adult intestinal sequences showed homology with organisms within the Bacteroidaceae
family, including Bacteroides fragilis, B.
Anaerobic infections in an Indian tertiary care hospital with special reference to Bacteroidaceae
. J Infect 1999;38:54-5.
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
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.
Other groups of bacteria, including the Bacteroidaceae
, were not affected [29, 30].
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 .
