A new study by a group of scientists from Danone Nutricia Research (the Netherlands), the Laboratory of Microbiology at Wageningen University (the Netherlands), and the Department of Medicine at Imperial College London (United Kingdom) explored how the gut microbiota tracks eczema development in early life—and also whether gut microbiota composition was modulated by a prebiotic early-life dietary intervention.
