Definition of gut flora in English:
Another term for intestinal flora.
- However, their role in the pathogenesis of diarrhoea is still debated because most of them are considered to be usual commensal bacteria of the gut flora.
- They are immunomodulating bacteria that have very low virulence compared with the more pathogenic gut flora such as Escherichia coli and clostridia.
- The authors aren't sure how, but it's possible that rifaximin stays in the small bowel, killing pathogens, without affecting gut flora further down.
