Initial gut microbial composition as a key factor driving host response to antibiotic treatment, as exemplified by the presence or absence of commensal Escherichia coliDownload
Antibiotics are important for treating bacterial infection; however, efficacies and side effects of antibiotics vary in medicine and experimental models. A few studies have correlated microbiota composition variations with health outcomes in response to antibiotics; however, no study has...
Changes in the gut microbiota have been correlated with positive and negative health outcomes; however, the mechanisms of causality in microbial modifications and resulting host responses are largely unknown. In this thesis, a mouse model was successfully established by colonizing mice with gut...
