Microbiota health predicts success of allogeneic haematopoietic-cell transplantation

Survival outcomes after allogeneic haematopoietic-cell transplantation are dependent on diversity of intestinal microbiota at the time of neutrophil engraftment, international research has shown. The study, run across four sites in the US, Germany and Japan, used 16S ribosomal RNA gene sequencing to assess microbiota disruption in 8,767 faecal samples from 1,362 patients with haematological cancers. ...
