The type of birth (vaginal delivery or C-section) affects the development of gut microbiota in newborns and may affect their health later in life, according to a study published in the Canadian Medical Association Journal. Canadian researchers studied the development of the gut bacteria – gut microbiota – of newborns according to delivery type in order to analyse how this could influence their future health. Research showed that C-section alters the colonisation of a newborn’s gut microbiota as it prevents direct exposure to and contact with the mother’s microbiota. According to the research team, caesarean section may increase adults’ risk of suffering from a range of conditions including asthma, obesity,…

We have composed short summaries of the workshops that were organized during the Gut Microbiota for Health Summit (Madrid, February 2013).   Here is the list of workshops: “Gut Microbiota and functional bowel disorders” “Gut Microbiota and brain function” “Probiotics and prebiotics: use and selection” “Dysbiosis in IBD” “Faecal microbiota transplantation” “Technologies to investigate the human gut microbiota”

Professor of Medical Microbiology Graham Rook, from UCL (University College London), explains in this video the “surprisingly close” relationship between gut microbiota and the immune system. Prof. Rook, who was interviewed during the 2nd Gut…

The bacteria living in our intestinal tract, the gut microbiota, play a key role in our health. It accomplishes different functions and stimulates the development and maintenance of the intestinal immune system that protects us…
