To identified the characteristics of gut microbiota in patients with acute anterior uveitis.
Fecal DNA were extracted from 78 fecal samples (17 acute anterior uveitis (AAU) patients with ankylosing spondylitis (AS)(AAU+AS+ patients), 21 AAU patients without AS (AAU+AS- patients) and 40 sex- and gender matched healthy controls) and then sequencing by high-throughput 16S rRNA gene.
There was a significant decrease in annotated species numbers and bacterial diversity between AAU+AS+ patients and healthy-controls.There was a significant distance as beta diversity between AAU+AS+ patients and healthy controls.A linear discriminant analysis of bacterial taxa showed that the abundance of Lachnospiracea_incertae_sedis, Blautia and Roseburia were significant decrease in AAU+AS- patients as compared with healthy controls.
Composition of gut microbiota in AAU patients was totally different from healthy controls.
