Identification of Anti-Inflammatory Gut Microbiota-Derived Metabolites in a Model of Non-Alcoholic Fatty Liver Disease.

Choi, Maria C.
2015

The purpose of this Senior Honors Thesis was to investigate the role of gut microbiota-derived metabolites to mediate inflammation in the liver. Metabolites associated with both gut microbiota presence and inflammation were identified and their anti-inflammatory properties were tested in a model for Non-alcoholic fatty liver disease (NAFLD).
