Infants with growth failure had a disrupted maturation of the intestinal microbiome, characterized by low bacterial diversity, the dominance of certain disease-causing bacteria (Staphylococcus and Enterobacteriaceae) and low proportions of harmless bacteria (such as Veillonella).
After the marathon, the runners' guts teemed with far greater numbers of a bacteria called Veillonella. Their intestines had contained more of this microbe than the guts of sedentary people before the race, but afterward, the numbers soared.
There were also some bacteria whose relative abundance had a significant positive correlation with NDF digestibility, such as Veillonella and Bacteroides (Tables 4, 5).

There were a total of three anaerobic isolates, of which one was Veillonella (Gram-negative cocci) and two were Bacteroides spp.
Some breast infections (and up to 40% of breast abscesses) may be polymicrobial, with isolation of aerobes (Staphylococcus, Streptococcus, Enterobacteriaceae, Corynebacterium, Escherichia coli, and Pseudomonas) as well as anaerobes (Peptostreptococcus, Propionibacterium, Bacteroides, Lactobacillus, Eubacterium, Clostridium, Fusobacterium, and Veillonella) (3, 20, 22, 23).
The previous observation in patients of atherosclerosis (AS) that the abundances of Veillonella and Streptococcus in atherosclerotic plaques were correlated with their abundance in the oral cavity first suggested that the plaque microbiota may be partly derived from the oral cavity and/or the gut [8].
Microbiological testing revealed colonies of Enterobacteriaceae and Micromonas micros as well as Peptostreptococcus and Veillonella species.

Prevotella, Bacillus, Bacteroides, Staphylococcus, and Porphyromonas were abundant in Group A, whereas Prevotella, Streptococcus, Veillonella, Leptotrichia, and Lactobacillus were abundant in Group B.
