Shared Notes


  • [1.1
    - EEN > reduce microbial diversity > lower SCFA concentrations (including butyrate) & reduce Faecalibacterium prausnitzii, which is usually considered beneficial in IBD.
    - Responders to EEN showed lower bacterial richness than nonresponders.
    - EEN > showed a decrease in Shannon diversity with EEN, but this returned to pretreatment levels two months after EEN was stopped, as did decreases in Bifidobacterium, Ruminococcus, and Faecalibacterium.
    - It is hypothesized that some of these decreases in specific taxa and diversity are simply due to the lack of fibre in EEN.
