During the past decade a large number of genomic studies have reported associations between our gut microbiota composition and metabolic disorders. However, a causal relationship between gut microbiota and metabolic diseases such as obesity or type 2 diabetes has yet to be confirmed. Furthermore, mechanisms by which gut microbes and their metabolites interact in the context of metabolic disorders have…

In the absence of profound perturbation, bacterial communities living in the gut are mostly stable over time within an individual and between family members. However, the effect of exogenous dietary factors including both pre- and probiotics is generally variable and depends on individualized features of the background microbiota. In the complexity of gut ecology, understanding which factors drive exogenous strain…

The effects of dietary fiber on a host's innate immune responses are thought to be mediated at local and systemic levels via short-chain fatty acids (SCFAs). Previous preclinical research has shown that mice that consume a diet high in fermentable fiber are protected against allergic airway inflammation through SCFAs. However, underlying mechanisms are poorly understood. A new study, led by…
