    The Lachnospiraceae are a family of bacteria in the order of Clostridiales which occur in the human and mammal gut microbiota.[3][11][12][13] All species of this family are anaerobic.[13] Members of this family may protect against colon cancer in humans by producing butyric acid.[14] Lachnospiraceae has been found to cause diabetes in germ free mice.[15]
