Bacteria, Immunity, and Non-Communicable Disease: More Data?

Still more intriguing data, now potentially linking Type 1 diabetes with intestinal flora. While none of this is by any stretch close to definitive, I think the element of truth to which we may be moving is that we know little about the delicate balance between so-called “sociomicrobiology”, the microbiome and chronic disease.  Enjoy, -DGA ESPOO, Finland, Oct 28, 2011 (BUSINESS WIRE) — A study led by Matej Oresic from VTT Technical Research Centre of Finland suggests that autoimmune diabetes is preceded by diminished gut microbial diversity of the Clostridium leptum subgroup, elevated plasma leptin and enhanced glucose-stimulated insulin secretion.
