    Andreas Schwiertz
    Deutsches Institut für Ernaehrungsforschung, Abteilung Gastrointestinale Mikrobiologie, Bergholz Rehbrücke, Germany
    Pediatr Res 54:393-9. 2003
    ..The interindividual bacterial composition in hospitalized preterm infants is more similar in comparison with breast-fed, full-term infants and is not necessarily influenced by birth weight, diet, or antibiotic treatment...
  2. pmc Throwing the dice for the diagnosis of vaginal complaints?
    Andreas Schwiertz
    Institute for Microecology, Herborn, Germany
    Ann Clin Microbiol Antimicrob 5:4. 2006
    ..Vaginitis is among the most common conditions women are seeking medical care for. Although these infections can easily be treated, the relapse rate is high. This may be due to inadequate use of the diagnostic potential...
  3. doi request reprint Microbiota and SCFA in lean and overweight healthy subjects
    Andreas Schwiertz
    Institute of Microecology, Auf den Lüppen 8, Herborn, Germany
    Obesity (Silver Spring) 18:190-5. 2010
    ..However, our results contradict previous reports with regard to the contribution of various bacterial groups to the development of obesity and this issue remains controversial...
  4. doi request reprint Microbiota in pediatric inflammatory bowel disease
    Andreas Schwiertz
    Institute of Microecology, Herborn, Germany
    J Pediatr 157:240-244.e1. 2010
    ..To test the hypothesis that compared with controls, children with inflammatory bowel disease (IBD) exhibit differences in the relationships between gut microbiota and disease activity...

    Lilian Schoefer
    Abteilung Gastrointestinale Mikrobiologie, Deutsches Institut für Ernährungsforschung, 14558 Bergholz Rehbrucke, Germany
    Appl Environ Microbiol 69:5849-54. 2003
    ..orbiscindens in 8 out of the 10 samples tested. The numbers ranged from 1.87 x 10(8) to 2.50 x 10(9) cells g of fecal dry mass(-1), corresponding to a mean count of 4.40 x 10(8) cells g of dry feces(-1)...
  6. doi request reprint Bioactivation of selenocysteine derivatives by beta-lyases present in common gastrointestinal bacterial species
    Andreas Schwiertz
    Institute of Microecology, Herborn, Germany
    Int J Vitam Nutr Res 78:169-74. 2008
    ..Our results indicate that beta-lyase activity is widely distributed in human intestinal bacteria and might play a key role in the bioactivation of selenocysteine derivatives...
  7. ncbi request reprint Anaerostipes caccae gen. nov., sp. nov., a new saccharolytic, acetate-utilising, butyrate-producing bacterium from human faeces
    Andreas Schwiertz
    Department of Gastrointestinal Microbiology, German Institute of Human Nutrition, Bergholz Rehbrücke
    Syst Appl Microbiol 25:46-51. 2002
    ..Based on phenotypic and phylogenetic criteria, it is proposed that the two strains from faeces be classified as a new genus and species, Anaerostipes caccae. The type strain of Anaerostipes caccae is NCIMB 13811T (= DSM 14662T)...

    Appl Environ Microbiol 69:4320-4. 2003
    ..Bacteria related to E. hallii and the genera Roseburia and Faecalibacterium are therefore among the most abundant known butyrate-producing bacteria in human feces...
