Gut microbiota, Alzheimer’s and the central nervous system

University of Nevada, Las Vegas, researchers have identified a correlation between Alzheimer’s disease and specific gut microbiota populations. In a paper published in Scientific Reports titled “Genetic correlations between Alzheimer’s disease and gut microbiome genera,” the researchers explain how they narrowed the search down to a half dozen disease-correlated microbes, with one related to the most significant risk.
