Characteristics of Intestinal Microflora and Metabolites of Patients with Cranial Nerve Injury

Jue Liao


As the study on microbiology deepens, human microorganism, especially intestinal microflora, has been proved to be closely related to the occurrence of many diseases. Cranial nerve injury diseases, especially large artery atherosclerosis, have a high incidence in China, which makes it the focus of disease prevention and control in China. However, no studies have been conducted on the intestinal microflora and plasma TMAO levels in patients with cranial nerve injury. In this study, the changes of intestinal microflora and its metabolites are analyzed by comparing blood and fresh stool samples from stroke patients and healthy people. The results of the study show that there are obvious disturbances in the intestinal microflora in patients with stroke, the proportion of harmful flora increases, and plasma TMAO levels decreases.
