Image: Escherichia coli bacteria (red), which are abundant in the immunoglobulin-A-coated microbiota of patients with a Crohn\'s disease-associated condition called spondyloarthritis, promote systemic inflammation. The blue circular structures depict the nuclei of cells called epithelial cells (Photo courtesy of Dr. Kenneth Simpson, Cornell University).

Bacteria Links Crohn's Disease to Spondyloarthritis

Peripheral spondyloarthritis (SpA) is a common extraintestinal manifestation in patients with active inflammatory bowel disease (IBD) characterized by inflammatory enthesitis, dactylitis, or synovitis of nonaxial joints. More...

Premature Birth Risk Linked to Bacteria in Cervicovaginal Space

Changes in microbial communities have been implicated in both health and disease and investigations into the association between the cervicovaginal (CV) microbiota and spontaneous preterm birth (SPTB) have been limited in scope and number. More...
