    - Reduced abundance of Faecalibacterium was found to be predictive of RA and this bacterium was found to be significantly positively correlated with a number of metabolites including the vitamin B metabolites riboflavin, nicotinate and pantothenate; nucleotides adenine, guanine and uracil; and the SCFA butyrate.
    - As a butyrate producer, Faecalibacterium is generally considered beneficial
