Abstract:Eukaryotic enteric pathogens (EEP) are a public health issue in tropical areas. Yet, their interactions with the gut mycobiota remain poorly understood. We conducted a cross-sectional study in Malian children to analyze the impact of EEP on the gut fungal community. EEP were assessed by qPCR and the gut mycobiota was characterized by ITS1-2 metabarcoding in stool samples collected from 296 children. The 100 controls, in whom no EEP was detected, were compared to: a) 196 children with ≥1 EEP; b) 91 with …
scite is a Brooklyn-based startup that helps researchers better discover and evaluate scientific articles through Smart Citations–citations that display the context of the citation and describe whether the article provides supporting or contrasting evidence. scite is used by researchers from dozens of countries and is funded in part by the National Science Foundation and the National Institute of Drug Abuse of the National Institutes of Health.
