Study TitleRationally designed bacterial consortia to treat chronic immune-mediated colitis and restore intestinal homeostasis
Study TypeTargeted metabolomics
Study SummaryGUT103 and GUT108, live biotherapeutic products rationally designed to complement missing or underrepresented functions in the dysbiotic microbiome of IBD patients; they address upstream targets, rather than targeting a single cytokine to block downstream inflammation responses. Systematic colonization experiments in colitis mouse models were performed to test their therapeutic effects. Targeted fecal metabolomics data uploaded here of bile acids, short-chain fatty acids, and tryptophan metabolites provides a unique metabolome perspective for evaluation of the therapeutic potential of GUT103 and GUT108.

Project Title:Rationally designed bacterial consortia to treat chronic immune-mediated colitis and restore intestinal homeostasis
Project Type:targeted metabolomics
Project Summary:Environmental factors, mucosal permeability and defective immunoregulation drive overactive immunity to a subset of resident intestinal bacteria that mediate multiple inflammatory conditions. GUT-103 and GUT-108, live biotherapeutic products rationally designed to complement missing or underrepresented functions in the dysbiotic microbiome of IBD patients, address upstream targets, rather than targeting a single cytokine to block downstream inflammation responses. GUT-103, composed of 17 strains that synergistically provide protective and sustained engraftment in the IBD inflammatory environment, prevented, and treated chronic immune-mediated colitis. Therapeutic application of GUT-108 reversed established colitis in a humanized chronic T cell-mediated mouse model. It decreased pathobionts while expanding resident protective bacteria; produced metabolites promoting mucosal healing and immunoregulatory responses; decreased inflammatory cytokines and Th-1 and Th-17 cells; and induced interleukin-10-producing colonic regulatory cells, and IL-10-independent homeostatic pathways. We propose GUT-108 for treating and preventing relapse for IBD and other inflammatory conditions characterized by unbalanced microbiota and mucosal permeability.

Collection ID:CO001818
Collection Summary:For samples for targeted metabolomics analysis, mouse cecal content and/or feces were collected.
Collection Protocol ID:University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill Institutional Animal Care and Use Committee (18-266.0-B)
Sample Type:Feces
Storage Conditions:-80℃


Treatment ID:TR001838
Treatment Summary:For treatment 200 µl of diluted human donor stool was applied by oral gavage on day 1 to Il10-/- mice. The stool was derived from a single healthy donor, Donor-Y, and was previously found to induce moderate to severe colitis in Il10-/- mice. One gram stool was diluted 100- fold with anaerobic PBS, and vigorously mixed for 5 minutes under anaerobic conditions. For application of GUT-103 and GUT-108, 300µl resuspended strain mixture in anaerobic PBS was applied per mouse by oral gavage. GUT-103 and GUT-108 strains were grown individually, subsequently mixed to equal concentrations (cfu/ml), and provided at a dose of 2.0x10+7 cfu/strain in a total volume of 300 µl. The strain mixture was provided four times via oral gavage on days 15, 17, 22 and 25 (Il10-/- mice) or on days 1, 3, 8 and 11 (Il10+/eGFP mice).
