New research is showing that an abundance of certain specific types of gut bacteria could be associated with the likelihood of developing Alzheimer's disease.
A growing body of evidence suggests that an imbalance of the human gut microbiome is associated with the development of neurodegenerative diseases like Alzheimer’s disease (AD) via neuroinflammatory processes across the gut-brain axis. Now, researchers at the University of Las Vegas have identified 10 bacterial groups associated with Alzheimer’s disease, providing new insights into the relationship between the gut and dementia.
Specific types of gut bacteria and Alzheimer's disease are closely related.
The UNLV team’s analysis found a significant correlation between 10 specific types of gut bacteria and the likelihood of developing Alzheimer’s disease.
The UNLV team’s investigation found a big link between ten particular types of gut bacteria and the chances of getting Alzheimer’s disease.
The analysis — led by a team of researchers with the Nevada Institute of Personalized Medicine (NIPM) at UNLV and published this spring in the Nature journal Scientific Reports — examined data from dozens of past studies into the belly-brain connection. The results? There’s a strong link between particular kinds of gut bacteria and Alzheimer’s disease.
