TOKYO-Sunday, March 5th 2017 [ ME NewsWire ]

(BUSINESS WIRE)-- Morinaga Milk Industry Co., Ltd. (TOKYO:2264), a leading dairy product company in Japan, today announced the results of a new study that show how gut microbiota composition in a healthy human population changes with age. The study, which utilized new technology for sequencing DNA, is unique due to its size and the wide age range of its subjects (newborn to 104 years). These factors contribute to a new, comprehensive picture of the typical pattern of evolution of bacteria in the human gut.

Seminal research in the 1970s by Dr. Mitsuoka demonstrated drastic changes in the composition of gut microbiota species as people age 1 (Figure 1). However, at that point in time, only about 20 to 50% of gut microbiota species had been identified by the culture-based method. Despite major advances in microbiota analytical technologies, to date no large-scale analysis of the gut microbiota has been conducte ... Read more »
