Duration of labour and its impact on the infant gut microbial composition in the Canadian Healthy Infant Longitudinal Development (CHILD) birth cohortDownload
Background: Balanced development of infant gut microbiota is pivotal for immune maturation and energy homeostasis, and infant gut dysbiosis is associated with increased risk of childhood atopy, allergy and excess weight gain. Shifts in abundance of gut Bacteroidetes and Firmicutes during infancy,...
