Dr. Mangalam

A recent publication from Dr. Ashutosh Mangalam’s laboratory was one of the top 100 read articles in Scientific Reports. The article, entitled Multiple sclerosis patients have a distinct gut microbiota compared to healthy controls, documented clear differences in the gut microbiome of MS patients with relapsing remitting disease compared to age- and gender- matched healthy controls. This gut microbial dysbiosis in MS patients has important implications for autoimmune pathogenesis as well as potential therapies. The paper was published in June of 2016.

Scientific Reports is a peer reviewed online open access journal from the Nature publishing group. In 2016 more than 20,000 articles were published in Scientific Reports making Dr. Mangalam’s top 100 accomplishment quite remarkable. Congratulations to all the authors.
