Association between gut microbiome-related metabolites and symptomatic hand osteoarthritis in two independent cohorts (2023)
Journal Article
Wei, J., Yang, Z., Li, J., Zhang, Y., Zhang, W., Doherty, M., …Zeng, C. (2023). Association between gut microbiome-related metabolites and symptomatic hand osteoarthritis in two independent cohorts. EBioMedicine, 98, Article 104892. https://doi.org/10.1016/j.ebiom.2023.104892

Background: Since gut microbiome dysbiosis can cause inflammatory disorders by affecting host metabolism, we postulate that the gut microbiome and related metabolites could play a role in hand osteoarthritis. We characterised gut microbiome-related m... Read More about Association between gut microbiome-related metabolites and symptomatic hand osteoarthritis in two independent cohorts.
