Relationship between vaginal microbial dysbiosis, inflammation, and pregnancy outcomes in cervical cerclage (2016)
Journal Article
McDonald, J. A., Kindinger, L. M., MacIntyre, D. A., Lee, Y. S., Marchesi, J. R., Smith, A., …Bennett, P. R. (2016). Relationship between vaginal microbial dysbiosis, inflammation, and pregnancy outcomes in cervical cerclage. Science Translational Medicine, 8(350), https://doi.org/10.1126/scitranslmed.aag1026

Preterm birth, the leading cause of death in children under 5 years, may be caused by inflammation triggered by ascending vaginal infection. About 2 million cervical cerclages are performed annually to prevent preterm birth. The procedure is thought...

Microbial profiling of dental plaque from mechanically ventilated patients (2016)
Journal Article
Williams, D. W., Wilson, M. J., Marchesi, J. R., Wise, M. P., Lewis, M. A., Twigg, J. A., …Smith, A. (2016). Microbial profiling of dental plaque from mechanically ventilated patients. Journal of Medical Microbiology, 65(2), 147-159. https://doi.org/10.1099/jmm.0.000212

© 2015 The Authors. Micro-organisms isolated from the oral cavity may translocate to the lower airways during mechanical ventilation (MV) leading to ventilator-associated pneumonia (VAP). Changes within the dental plaque microbiome during MV have bee... Read More about Microbial profiling of dental plaque from mechanically ventilated patients.
