Oscillospira is a common yet rarely cultivated gut bacterial genus. Recently human gut microbiota studies have demonstrated its underlying significance for host health.
Oscillospira is closely related to human health because its abundance is positively correlated with microbial diversity, high density lipoprotein, and sleep time, and is inversely correlated with diastolic blood pressure, systolic blood pressure, fasting blood glucose, triglyceride, uric acid and Bristol stool type.

Oscillospira is a rarely cultivated bacterial genus, commonly found in the human gut microbiota. Recently, several human gut microbiota investigations have detected Oscillospira and demonstrated its underlying significance for host health. Oscillospira was reported to be less abundant in patients with inflammatory bowel disease and pediatric nonalcoholic steatohepatitis. Keren et al. showed that mean Oscillospira relative abundance was higher in patients with gallstones, the only disease known to involve Oscillospira, so far.
