According to another study conducted by the American Chemical Society, microbes present in our gut influence the onset of diseases through the body. The study has discovered a way to use chemical compounds to avoid the growth of particular microbes in the digestive tract connected to diseases without causing any injury to other organisms.
Antibiotic scan help control the microbiome as it can clear a few of the organisms that lead to a wholesome microbiome, but germs which change the microbiome can sometimes cause more damage than good.
To solve the problems, the group has also examined using probiotics and fecal transplant. Some investigators investigated by taking a look at the microbiome to improve health. Researchers to help fill in the gap used chemical compounds to target and interrupt metabolic processes of participants of Bacteroides genus.
The analysis has discovered that acarbose (a drug used in the treatment of diabetes) significantly interrupted the action of a group of proteins involved in Starch Utilization Procedure.
The team has found that as a consequence, the bacteria cannot grow and acarbose has been specific. It had similar effects on other Bacteroides germs, but little or no effect on other types of microbes.
