Microbes of the human gut can change drug disposition in the human body and gut ecology via 'bioaccumulation', a process in which bacteria take up compounds intracellularly without chemically modifying them or experiencing changes in growth, as described in Klünemann et al. This work expands current understanding of the types of drug–bacterial interactions in the gut environment.
