The gut microbiota of patients with primary sclerosing cholangitis (PSC) has low diversity and is highly different from both healthy individuals and inflammatory bowel disease patients without PSC, according to a study by Martin Kummen and co-workers, which is now published online in the prestigious journal Gut (journal impact factor 14.66).
The study represents a milestone at Norwegian PSC Research Center, being the first entirely based on in-house methodology, and also providing an important starting point for studies on the clinical application of gut microbiota in this disease.
