Decreasing Oscillospira genus

“Oscillospira is an under-studied anaerobic bacterial genus from Clostridial cluster IV that has resisted cultivation for over a century since the first time it was observed… the observation that the presence of this genus is reduced in diseases that involve inflammation.”[2017]
