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].
