The faecal microbiota of 21 active Crohn’s disease (CD) patients without CDI (Group CD1，
(1) The α diversity was decreased in IBD patients compared with HC. But there was no significant difference between IBD patients with and without CDI.
(2) The inter-group variability in community structure byβdiversity analysis using Principal Co-ordinates Analysis (PCOA) showed a clear separation between IBD patients with HC. But IBD patients with and without CDI could not be separated.
(3) Relative abundance of bacteria at the genus level show different global composition in IBD patients with or without CDI and HC to some extent.
(4) In UC patients, compared with UC without CDI, UC patients with CDI had lower abundance of bacilli and coriobacteriales OTUs at class level, lower abundance of coriobacteriales OTUs at order level and lower abundance of subdoligranulum and fusicatenibacter OTUs at genus level.
(5) Metagenomics revealed that
IBD especially UC patients with CDI is associated with a more pronounced microbial dysbiosis than patients without CDI, with specific alterations in intestinal microorganisms.
