Core Tip Emergent literature demonstrates the critical role of the human microbiota in the susceptibility to Clostridium difficile (C. difficile) infection (CDI). Microbial communities may exert effects on the metabolic composition within the GI tract that influence CDI pathogenesis (e.g., bile salt metabolism). The identification of protective and susceptible human gut microbiomes would enable the development of screening tools to identify at-risk patients. Ultimately, the rational design of probiotic cocktails could assist in attenuating C. difficile transmission in hospital or community settings. Prevention of CDI would lead to decreased morbidity and mortality, as well as reduction of hospitalization time and health care costs associated with treatment.
