Molecular community profiling of the bacterial microbiota associated with denture-related stomatitis (2019)
Journal Article
Morse, D. J., Smith, A., Wilson, M. J., Marsh, L., White, L., Posso, R., …Williams, D. W. (2019). Molecular community profiling of the bacterial microbiota associated with denture-related stomatitis. Scientific Reports, 9(1), https://doi.org/10.1038/s41598-019-46494-0

Denture-associated stomatitis (DS) affects over two-thirds of denture-wearers. DS presents as erythema of the palatal mucosa in areas where denture-surface associated polymicrobial biofilms containing the fungus Candida albicans exist. The contributi...

Enhanced microbial bile acid deconjugation and impaired ileal uptake in pregnancy repress intestinal regulation of bile acid synthesis (2019)
Journal Article
Ovadia, C., Perdones‐Montero, A., Spagou, K., Smith, A., Sarafian, M. H., Gomez‐Romero, M., …Williamson, C. (2019). Enhanced microbial bile acid deconjugation and impaired ileal uptake in pregnancy repress intestinal regulation of bile acid synthesis. Hepatology, 70(1), 276-293. https://doi.org/10.1002/hep.30661

Pregnancy is associated with progressive hypercholanemia, hypercholesterolemia, and hypertriglyceridemia, which can result in metabolic disease in susceptible women. Gut signals modify hepatic homeostatic pathways, linking intestinal content to metab...
