Gut Microbiome Publication

On January 22, 2018, PeerJ published “Eukaryotes in the gut microbiota in myalgic encephalomyelitis/chronic fatigue syndrome”. The publication is work done by Center participants regarding the diversity of eukaryotes in the gut microbiomes of people with ME/CFS and in healthy controls.

A recent research highlight by the Solve ME/CFS Initiative provides a detailed summary of this article. SMCI’s research summary can be viewed here.
