Higher Gut Microbiota Diversity (image) University of California - Davis Health System Share Print E-Mail Caption This study found that breast-fed infant monkeys had a higher gut microbiota diversity and richness than their formula-fed counterparts. Both Prevotella and Campylobacter were significantly more abundant in breast-fed than formula-fed animals at 12 months, and Clostridium was more abundant in the bottle-fed infants. The authors also found a network of significant correlations between stool levels of beneficial arachidonic acid, TH17 cells and bacterial genera such as Prevotella and Campylobacter.
