Chronic malnutrition in children: A new gut microbial signature
The Afribiota project, led by the Institut Pasteur in Paris, in Madagascar and in Bangui, in collaboration with the University of British Colombia, Inserm and Collège de France, was set up to advance our understanding of the underlying mechanisms of chronic malnutrition. A first study recently demonstrated microbiota disorders in malnourished children, revealing the existence of a surprising microbial signature in the gut. The findings were published in the journal PNAS on Aug. 20, 2018.
