Stool microbiota composition analysis. a Alpha diversity index box chart The abscissa represents sample grouping, and the ordinate is the alpha index. The healthy donors, active UC patients (marked as pretreatment) and patients post FMT treatment (marked as posttreatment) showed no significant difference (p > 0.05). b Venn diagram indicating the number of differential OTUs in each group. c Analysis of similarities (ANOSIM) showed significant differences among the healthy donors and pretreatment and posttreatment UC patients. d Principal coordinate analysis (PCoA) of the gut microbiota among the healthy donors, active UC patients and patients post FMT treatment. The distance between the samples represents the similarity of the gut microbiota composition, and a closer distance indicates higher similarity. e Nonmetric multidimensional scaling plots (NMDS) of the gut microbiota among the healthy donors, active UC patients and patients post-FMT treatment
