Growth stunting in children with EED linked with duodenal microbiota, enteropathy

Investigators observed a relationship between growth stunting and small intestinal microbiota components and enteropathy in children with environmental enteric dysfunction.This demonstrated the possible need for therapies that would target microbial contributions to environmental enteric dysfunction.“The microbial community of the small intestine remains a ‘terra incognita,’ and its relationship to the pathogenesis of gut barrier dysfunction, enteropathy, and stunting has been largely unexplored,” Robert Y. Chen, MD, PhD, from Edison Family Center for Genome SciencesRead More
