While the purpose of the appendix is largely unknown, Steven L. Zeichner, MD, PhD, of Children’s National Health System’s Center for Cancer and Immunology Research at Children’s Research Institute, and other researchers from Children’s National and the Institute for Genome Sciences at the University of Maryland School of Medicine have identified potential links between microbes found in the appendix of patients with appendicitis and those found in the rectum in the appendicitis patients. The findings may help guide treatment and lead to the development of new, faster, less expensive and safer tests to diagnose appendicitis.
