Research regarding the gut microbiota has exploded and it is one of the hottest emerging health topics. No longer simply a digestive organ, the gut and its microbiota has now been revealed as having a role in metabolism, immunity and even behaviour. Research has also revealed the dynamic nature of our gut microbiota over the lifespan – with composition changes…

A world without bacteria is, simply, unimaginable. Without them we probably wouldn’t be here. They have existed for billions of years and are everywhere, including within us. In fact, the microorganisms in our guts, our gut microbiota, are essential for key functions that help us live in good health. The same could be said for the rest of the animals,…

Secretory immunoglobulin A (IgA) is the most abundant antibody in mucosal secretions and has been recognized as a first line of defense in protecting the intestinal epithelium from enteric pathogens. Despite its important role in mucosal immunity and intestinal homeostasis, IgA deficiency—defined by undetectable seric IgA titers (<0.07 mg/ml) with normal IgG concentration—is related to a very mild phenotype in…

Warren Peters has dedicated the last part of his medical career to study the molecular and genetic basis of obesity. In this talk at TEDxLaSierraUniversity (California, US) held in April 2016, Peters wonders if the new discoveries about the microbiome may change the way we understand diabetes and obesity, as well as Alzheimer's disease, autism, and our everyday health and…

Gut microbiota has been related to several pathologies over the past two decades. Nevertheless, not all pathology-associated microbiome signatures have been found to be equally consistent and the organization and ecological properties of the intestinal microbial ecosystem remain under-investigated. A new comment published in Nature Microbiology, led by Dr. Jeroen Raes from the VIB Centre for the Biology of Disease/Vrije…
