While changes in the human gut microbiome's composition and function have been related to several diseases and types of medication, variability between studies limits the comparing of findings. Another factor that limits our understanding of how disease-medication interactions have an impact on gut microbiota is the fact that the gut microbiome has been studied in relation to single diseases without…

The fact that healthy relatives of patients with inflammatory bowel disease (IBD) have a higher risk of developing IBD and display mucosal microbiota dysbiosis indicates that both genetic background and alterations of the gut microbiome might trigger disease phenotype. A study, led by Prof. Kevin Whelan from the Faculty of Life Sciences & Medicine at King’s College London (United Kingdom),…

Metabolites produced by the gut microbiota may affect host physiology both directly and indirectly. Tryptophan is an essential amino acid and a precursor to several such metabolites. Tryptamine is important example of a bacterially-produced, tryptophan-derived metabolite with previously unknown functions in the gastrointestinal tract. A new study, published in Cell Host & Microbe and led by Dr. Purna C. Kashyap…

How the gut microbiota can relate to preventing and treating obesity and what are the potential gut microbiota targets in gluten-related disorders were the key subjects discussed in the workshop on nutrition organized by GMFH during the Gut Microbiota for Health World Summit 2018, held in Rome on March 10 and 11. The workshop, called ‘Gut microbiota targets in nutrition’,…
