Meet Your Microbiome by SciShow

La microbiota intestinal participa en nuestra digestión, en nuestro sistema inmunitario y en muchas otras funciones. Este original vídeo producido por SciShow nos pone al día sobre las investigaciones más recientes en temas tan candentes como la infección por Clostridium difficile, los trasplantes de microbiota fecal, la enfermedad inflamatoria intestinal, la disbiosis, o los probióticos.

Although plenty of research in both animal models and humans during the last decade has explored the relationship between the gut microbiota and obesity and related metabolic disorders, the clinically relevant contribution of gut microbiota to obesity and related metabolic disorders is still unknown. The relationship between obesity and metabolic diseases has been recently covered in a review article by…

Many questions arise when it comes to probiotics and gut microbiota. By what mechanisms of action can probiotics affect host health? What is the role of probiotics in preventing healthcare-associated infections? Do probiotics affect the intestinal barrier? The Gut Microbiota for Health publishing team has asked a selection of world-leading experts to weigh in on the answers, and we're pleased…

Probiotics have a range of documented effects on human health, with hundreds of studies from the past several decades showing their ability to alter physical or behavioural phenotypes in humans. These human efficacy trials provide the necessary evidence to guide probiotic use. In designing a trial, however, the researchers often wonder how to select the best strain for the task…

Patrice D. Cani
Professor Patrice D. Cani is researcher from the Belgian Fund for Scientific Research (FRS-FNRS), group leader in the Metabolism and Nutrition research group at the Louvain Drug Research Institute (LDRI) from the Université catholique de Louvain (UCL), Brussels, Belgium, and WELBIO (Walloon Excellence in Lifesciences and BIOtechnology) investigator. He is currently member of several international associations, he is member of the Alumni College from the Royal Belgian Academy of Sciences, and he has been elected in the board of directors of the LDRI (UCL). Patrice D. Cani has a M.Sc. in Nutrition and another M.Sc. in health Sciences, he is registered dietitian and PhD in Biomedical Sciences. His main research interests are the investigation of the role of the gut microbiota in the development of metabolic disorders, such as obesity, type 2 diabetes and low grade inflammation. More specifically, he is investigating the interactions between the gut microbiota, the host and specific biological systems such as the endocannabinoid system and the innate immune system in the context of obesity, type 2 diabetes and metabolic inflammation. Prof Cani is author and co-author of more than 110 scientific research papers published in peer-reviewed international journals, conferences and book chapters.
