Shared Notes

  • [1.37
    - Significantly higher abundances of Bifidobacterium in UC.
  • [1.38
    - A positive association between a “high sugar and soft drinks” pattern and UC risk
    - When considering the foods most associated with the pattern, high consumers of sugar and soft drinks were at higher UC risk only if they had low vegetables intakes.
  • [1.3
    - Functional analysis revealed increased fecal proteolytic and elastase activity before UC onset.
    - Elastase activity inversely correlated with the relative abundance of Adlercreutzia.
    - Elastase activity directly correlated with known proteolytic taxa, such as Bacteroides vulgatus and high elastase activity was confirmed in Bacteroides isolates from fecal samples.
    - Mice colonized with or born from pre-UC colonized dams developed higher fecal proteolytic activity and an inflammatory immune tone compared with HC colonized mice.
  • [1.39
    - The safety and tolerability of SER-287 were similar to placebo.
    - SER-287 after vancomycin was significantly more effective than placebo for induction of remission in patients with active mild to moderate UC.
