Odoribacter spp.

A healthy result should fall into the range 0 - 80000000 CFU/g stool.

The name comes from the Latin words “odor” and “bacter”. A combination of the two means “rod of bad smell”. Bacteria of this genus have a rod shape, and some strains are found in the mouths of dogs with gum disease, which accounts for their association with bad odor.

The bacteria are found in the human gut where they are considered “commensal”, which means “eating from the same dish”. They exist in the human body without either helping or hindering us. Although low levels of Odoribacter may mean little beyond the fact that they’re simply not present, lower concentrations are sometimes reported in patients with Crohn’s Disease and ulcerative colitis.
