Faecalibacterium prausnitzii is one of the most important bacteria in the human gut flora and makes up to 5-10% of the total number of bacteria detected in stool samples from healthy humans. Faecalibacterium prausnitzii has a crucial role in maintaining gut physiology and host wellbeing.

Faecalibacterium prausnitzii monitoring may serve as a biomarker to assist in gut diseases diagnostics.

Faecalibacterium prausnitzii has been consistently reported as one of the main butyrate producers found in the intestine. Butyrate has a crucial role in gut physiology and host wellbeing. It is the main energy source for the colonocytes and it has protective properties against colorectal cancer (CRC) and inflammatory bowel diseases.
