Making connections between ALS and gut microbes
Evidence from Weizmann researchers links the gut microbiome to ALS and shows how different species can modulate disease course
Israeli researchers have linked gut microbiome species and metabolic pathways to ALS and shown that different species can ameliorate or exacerbate disease.
The microbiome and gut-brain axis have increasingly been implicated in neurological disorders including Parkinson’s disease, autism and Alzheimer’s disease. The discovery adds
