Scientists now have a better understanding of the relationship between the gut microbiome and rheumatoid arthritis.  By utilizing case-controlled associated tests, Japanese researchers conducted a whole-genome shotgun sequencing-based, metagenome-wide association study (MWAS). They identified high concentrations of numerous species belonging to the Prevotella genus.

By employing a combination of case-control tactics and artificial intelligence, researchers traced an association between the gut microbiome, host genome, and pathology of rheumatoid arthritis. Researchers identified a population-specific link between the metagenome and the host genome.
