Gut Microbiome Changes Long Before Celiac Disease Onset

Gut Microbiome Changes Long Before Celiac Disease Onset

Researchers including Distinguished University Professor Rita Colwell from the University of Maryland identified substantial microbial changes in the intestines of at-risk infants as early as 18 months before the onset of celiac disease. Using advanced genomic sequencing techniques, the researchers uncovered distinct alterations in several species of microorganisms and molecular components of cells and tissues in children who developed celiac disease that were not seen in at-risk children who did not develop the disease.
