Maternal microbiota, mode of delivery, type of infant feeding and other factors can influence the infant microbiota in the perinatal period. Microbiota composition in the neonatal period and beyond seems to have a relevant role in health, but researchers still have much to learn about the microbiota assembly process in healthy term infants and which aspects could have a causal…

It is well known that gut microbiota in early life is linked to several immune-related diseases. It has been previously reported that during the first 100 days of life there is a window where microbe-based diagnostics and therapeutics may be useful to prevent the development of asthma in high-risk individuals. A recent study, led by Prof. Susan Lynch from the…
