Gut bacteria can deactivate Cholera progression

This study identified one bacterium in the human microbiome, Blautia obeum, that can deactivate Cholera bacterium’s disease-causing mechanisms. Bile salt hydrolase, was seen to be degraded, reducing expression of virulence genes. A focus of future studies will be focused on how to increase its presence in the gut.
