The α-diversity and β-diversity indices of the fecal microbiome in the PD and control groups. a Box plots depict differences in the fecal microbiome diversity indices between the PD and control groups according to the Chao 1 index, observed species index, and Shannon index based on OTU counts. Each box plot represents the median, interquartile range, minimum, and maximum values. OUT: operational taxonomic units (b) PCoA plots of bacterial β-diversity based on the weighted UniFrac distance (left panel) and Bray-Curtis dissimilarity (right panel) analyzed according to health status. Patients with PD and age-matched controls are colored in blue and red, respectively
