Greetings from Chile! Today, in this Digest, it is worth to highlight: a study showing associations between the use of antibiotics and the risk of appendicitis, a review about microbiota and colorectal cancer (CRC) risk and another review about markers for diabetes-associated chronic kidney disease. In addition, there are a set of papers about microbiome changes under short- and long-term antibiotic use in the animal lab, and microbiota changes in the treatment of non-model animals, such as the sika deer.

  1. Hi I have subscribed for a while and am now trying to subscribe with a new email address but I am struggling to see how I do that? Could you point me in the right direction please?
    Many thanks


    • I am not sure, there should be a “follow” button in the bottom right but not sure if you can see that if you are already subscribed. You can open the blog in an incognito window and subscribe that way.
