    In a recently published article we report the metagenomic analysis of human gut microbiomes evolved in the absence of immunoglobulin A (IgA). We show that human IgA deficiency is not associated with massive quantitative perturbations of gut microbial ecology. While our study underlines a rather expected pathobiont expansion, we at the same time highlight a less expected depletion in some typically beneficial symbionts. We also show that IgM partially supply IgA deficiency, explaining the relatively mild clinical phenotype associated with the early steps of this condition. Microbiome studies in patients should consider potential issues such as cohort size, human genetic polymorphism and treatments. In this commentary, we discuss how such issues were taken into account in our own study.
