Microbiome-based therapeutics

From the article: "The gut microbiome plays an important part in a number of gastrointestinal conditions, including Clostridioides difficile infection and inflammatory bowel disease. Interest in modulating the gut microbiome, through prebiotics, probiotics, and natural or artificial microbiota therapeutics, has increased markedly in the past decade. Although the field has developed rapidly, it has faced reproducibility issues and encountered safety and regulatory hurdles. This two-part Series explores the development and promise of artificial microbiome therapeutics, and the current and future perspectives for microbiota therapies for treating inflammatory bowel disease.

Reporting guidelines in medical artificial intelligence: a systematic review and meta-analysis
F Kolbinger et al, Comm Med, April 11, 2024

From the abstract: "AI reporting guidelines for medical research vary with respect to the quality of the underlying consensus process, breadth, and target research phase. Some guideline items such as reporting of study design and model performance recur across guidelines, whereas other items are specific to particular fields and research stages. Our analysis highlights the importance of reporting guidelines in clinical AI research and underscores the need for common standards that address the identified variations and gaps in current guidelines. Overall, this comprehensive overview could help researchers and public stakeholders reinforce quality standards for increased reliability, reproducibility, clinical validity, and public trust in AI research in healthcare.
