Study Description

This project explores the nature of the human intestinal microbiome in healthy children and children with recurrent abdominal pain. The overall goal is to obtain a robust knowledge-base of the intestinal microbiome in children without evidence of pain or gastrointestinal disease, children with functional abdominal pain, and children with abdominal pain and changes in bowel habits (irritable bowel syndrome). Multiple strategies have been deployed to navigate and understand the nature of the intestinal microbiome in childhood. These strategies include 454 pyrosequencing-based strategies to sequence 16S rRNA genes and understand the detailed composition of microbes in healthy and disease groups. Microarray-based hybridization with the PhyloChip and quantitative real-time PCR (qPCR) probes are being applied as complementary strategies to gain an understanding of the intestinal microbiome from various perspectives. Data collected and analyzed during the HMP UH2 and UH3 Demo project, from a set of healthy and IBS children may enable the identification of core microbiomes in ... (Show More)
