Communities of Good Bacteria Make a Dent in Autoimmunity
Last week, researchers described a mixture of gut bacterial strains that could induce the production of regulatory T cells in mice.

And indeed, when animals with either colitis or allergic diarrhea were treated with the bacterial cocktails, their symptoms improved.
