Association between gut microbiome and stunted growth in prem babies

The more abnormal the microbiome in NICU infants, the more likely they are to experience stunted growth even at 4 years of age. While the growth stunting of premature infants has been well known, the role of the microbiome has not been investigated. The effects of the gut microbiome on this growth faltering were just revealed at the World of Microbiome Conference in Milan, Italy, culminating a five-year, $2.7 million study funded by the National Institute of Nursing Research.
