We begin this edition of our newsletter with a new research showing that two enzymes from the gut bacterium Flavonifractor plautii convert A and B type blood into universal type O donor blood.
Next up a new mouse study led by researchers in South Korea and Australia, that explores the causal mechanisms by which early-life gut microbiota exerts a protective effect against IgE-mediated food allergies. Also, you will find a new article with caveats and clinical implications in the connection between the duodenal microbiome, diet and functional gastrointestinal symptoms.
Finally, we cover a new mice study showing that changes in gut microbiota composition can shape autoimmune responses in lupus during pregnancy and lactation.
Happy summer reading!
