The study has been conducted by scientists from Oregon State University in Corvallis, OR, the University of Vienna in Austria, the National Cancer Institute, and the National Institutes of Health in Bethesda, MD.

For this study, researchers performed combined experiments on mice and analyzed data taken from previous research in mice and humans. In the present study, mice were fed a regular diet or a diet that was equivalent to the food of a Western diet.

The authors of the study comment: “Our study reveals potential probiotic strains for treatment of type 2 diabetes and obesity as well as insights into the mechanisms of their action. That means an opportunity to develop targeted therapies rather than attempting to restore ‘healthy’ microbiota in general.”
