Alterations of Gut Microbiota among Children with Autism Spectrum Disorder

Research output: Contribution to journalArticlepeer-review

Abstract

In humans, altered microbial composition of the gut has been reported in different disorders, including children with autism. A number of studies comparing gut microbiota of autistic spectrum disorder patients and typically developed individuals revealed higher amount (albeit with some contradictions) of dif- ferent bacteria—Bacteroidetes, Firmicutes, Proteobacteria and Tenericutes in autistic individuals. In this study differences in gut microbiota composition between children with atypical autism and childhood autism were identified. Significant differences in-between gut microbiomes in children belonging to these two groups at genus and species levels were identified.
