A conference about relation between gut microbiota and colorectal cancer (CRC) was organized by the Canceropole in Paris this June 28th. Experts presented their studies linking different topics : the host microbiota crosstalk, associations between bacteria and cancer and how microbiota could impact antibiotics and anticancer therapies.   Gerard Eberl from Pasteur Institute started the conference insisting about the importance…

Speakers: Giovanni Barbara (Italy), Magnus Simren (Sweden)   Prof. Barbara highlighted the fact that there is increasing evidence indicating that the gut microbiota may be involved in the pathogenesis and pathophysiology of functional gastrointestinal disorders (FGIDs). FGIDs are a group of disorders characterised by recurrent GI symptoms that cannot be explained by other pathologically-based disease. Of these, irritable bowel syndrome…

Speakers: Emeran Mayer (USA), Premysl Bercik (Canada)   Prof. Mayer gave an introductory overview of the different aspects of the topic, stressing that the tight interplay between brain, gut and gut microbiota is based on a highly complex network of bidirectional pathways, which run top down (from brain to gut) as well as bottom up (from gut to brain). Prof.…

To be able to understand what dysbiosis is, you would have to understand what the normal status quo is, and according to Prof. Haller that is not really well established.…
