[Articles] Gut bacteria dysbiosis and necrotising enterocolitis in very low birthweight infants: a prospective case-control study

A relative abundance of Gammaproteobacteria (ie, Gram-negative facultative bacilli) and relative paucity of strict anaerobic bacteria (especially Negativicutes) precede necrotising enterocolitis in very low birthweight infants. These data offer candidate targets for interventions to prevent necrotising enterocolitis, at least among infants born at less than 27 weeks’ gestation.
