In a healthy adult, microbial cells are estimated to outnumber human cells 10 to one. Many microbes maintain our health, while others cause illness. Recent investigations of the human gut microbiome have discovered important ways in which gut microbes may influence a number of important disease states including obesity, inflammatory bowel disease, functional gastrointestinal disorders, cancers and liver disease. Recognizing the major influence the gut microbiome is likely to have on the future of digestive disease research and patient care, the AGA Governing Board is pleased to announce the creation of the AGA Center for Gut Microbiome Research and Education. "The gut microbiome is among the most exciting and promising areas of…

Knowing how microbiota is established in the gut is a very important topic regarding epithelium maturation and immune system developpement. The early studies focused on the dynamic of the microbiota in infant aiming to understand homeostasy mecanisms. The early life microbiota show a low diversity but an high variation in term of species abundance between infants. One of the basic question was to answer how much time is necessary to reach an high richness microbiota equivalent to adults. While pionneer studies had estimated the microbiota maturation between two and four years old, a recent study using high-throughput technology showed that microbiota is established around three years old. The early life…
