Mutualistic interactions between host and commensal microbiota have a pivotal role in colonization resistance (CR), protection against infections by enteric pathogens such as Salmonella spp. Previous research supporting this idea includes a study of the commensal bacterium Enterococcus faecium found in the mammals’ intestines that may improve host intestinal barrier function and limit the pathogenesis of infections caused by Salmonella…

Gut microbiome in Crohn’s disease (CD) and ulcerative colitis (UC), the two main forms of inflammatory bowel disease (IBD), has been previously shown to have a reduced microbial diversity and may play a role in their aetiology and pathogenesis. However, until now no clear comparison between dysbiosis in CD and in UC has been investigated in a large cohort. A…

Previous research has shown that the gut microbiota may have a role in the pathogenesis of immune-related diseases involving chronic inflammation, such as rheumatoid arthritis, Crohn’s disease, multiple sclerosis, and others. A recent review, led by Dr. Hai Lu from the Department of Orthopedic Surgery at The Third Affiliated Hospital of Southern Medical University in Guangzhou (China), discusses the existing…

Previous research has shown that the mechanisms of drug action such as chemopreventive activity of celecoxib and effects of metformin in type 2 diabetes patients appear to be shaped by gut microbial communities. A recent study, led by Dr. Laurence Zitvogel from the Institut de Cancérologie Gustave Roussy Cancer Campus in Villejuif (France), has found that the antitumoral efficacy of…
