Genetic Risk for Autoimmunity May Be Linked to Differences in Gut Microbiome

University of Florida researchers, Eric W. Triplett, Ph.D., Desmond A. Schatz, M.D., and Mark A. Atkinson, Ph.D. along with Linköping University researchers in Sweden found that the genetic risk for developing type 1 diabetes autoimmunity is associated with distinct changes in the gut microbiome.

To arrive at their findings, the researchers used the ABIS (All Babies in Southeast Sweden) study. The ABIS study aims to determine the reason why children develop immune-related conditions, particularly type 1 diabetes.
