Heavy Oil Exposure Change Microflora

2010年4月5日 月曜日

We found that heavy oil exposure to fish changed microflora –a colony of microorganisms present in a specific location – in fish skin mucus, which led the risk of developing bacterial infection rising. This is the first study to show clear changes in the microflora profile in fish skin mucus after chemical exposure, and give new insight on how environmental pollution is related to infectious diseases.
