  • [1.1
    - Severe Covid > higher abundance of four microbial species (i.e., Burkholderia contaminans, Bacteroides nordii, Bifidobacterium longum, and Blautia sp. CAG 257), six microbial pathways (e.g., glycolysis and fermentation), and 10 virulence genes > further associated with host immune response.
    - The abundance of Bu. contaminans > associated with higher levels of inflammation biomarkers and lower levels of immune cells.
    - human-origin proteins identified from both blood and fecal samples suggested gut barrier dysfunction in COVID-19 patients.
    - The circulating levels of lipopolysaccharide-binding protein increased in patients with severe illness > associated with circulating inflammation biomarkers and immune cells.
    - proteins of disease-related bacteria (e.g., B. longum) were detectable in blood samples from patients.
