Research & Practice

Recent observational data in infants (here; here) suggest a developmental origin for childhood atopy and subsequent asthma involving the gut microbiome perturbation and associated metabolic dysfunction in early life. However, little is known regarding gut microbiota maturation over the first year of life in infants at high risk for asthma and whether targeting the gut microbiome may modify disease risk.…

Prof. Dr. Paul Enck, Director of Research, Dept. of Psychosomatic Medicine and Psychotherapy, University Hospital Tübingen, Germany. His main interests are gut functions in health and disease, including functional and inflammatory bowel disorders, the role of the gut microbiota, regulation of eating and food intake and its disorders, of nausea, vomiting and motion sickness, and the psychophysiology and neurobiology of the placebo response, with specific emphasis on age and gender contributions. He has published more than 170 original data paper in scientific, peer-reviewed journals, and more than 250 book chapters and review articles. He is board member/treasurer of the European Society of Neurogastroenterology and Motility and of the German Society of Neurogastroenterology and Motility, and has served as reviewer for many international journals and grant agencies.

It is a well-known fact that caesarean section (c-section) birth is related to an increased risk of both immune and metabolic diseases later in life, possibly through aberrant gut microbiota composition and/or functional diversity. However, little is known about the effect of targeting gut microbiota with prebiotics and probiotics in c-section-born infants. A new randomized, double-blind, controlled multicentre study, led…

Gut-related symptoms, including flatulence, bloating, heartburn, nausea, vomiting, constipation, diarrhoea, food intolerance, incontinence, and abdominal pain affect approximately one third of the general population, according to the World Gastroenterology Organisation. Among the functional gastrointestinal disorders (FGIDs) that are characterized by persistent and recurring GI symptoms, irritable bowel syndrome (IBS) affects around 11% of the population globally and can interfere with…
