The researchers found that;
[Additionally, test-tube research by the Ghannoum-led team found that the three work together (with the E. coli cells fusing to the fungal cells and S. marcescens forming a bridge connecting the microbes) to produce a biofilm -- a thin, slimy layer of microorganisms found in the body that adheres to, among other sites, a portion of the intestines -- which can prompt inflammation that results in the symptoms of Crohn's disease.]
Sounds like a case for biofilm disruptors.
This seems like a very important finding. It confirms earlier studies about reduced beneficial bacteria in the micorbiomes of Crohn's and chronic ulcerative colitis patients, which is something that was also recently found in Dr. Hanson's study of ME/CFS patients.
What might be particularly important is the interplay between various bacteria and (now) fungi involved. It would be remarkable if it turned out that Crohn's, CUC and ME/CFS were manifestations of similar, self-sustaining imbalances, perhaps distinguished by which gut microbes are involved.
