As microbiome science expands, scientists worldwide are joining forces to better understand the impact commensal microbes found inside and on us have on the proper functioning of a wide range of ecosystems, from the ocean to the gastrointestinal tract. The Paris Center for Microbiome Medicine (PaCeMM) is a consortium of institutions that was recently created to facilitate gut microbiome research.…

Food intolerances are affecting increasingly more people. However, the way they manifest and the wide range of associated non-immunological mechanisms are so heterogeneous that there is no clear consensus on their mechanisms (from pharmacological to non-specific gastrointestinal functioning), diagnosis and management. A recent narrative review in Nutrients updates scientific evidence on common food intolerances that result in gastrointestinal and extra-intestinal…

Irritable bowel syndrome (IBS), defined according to Rome IV criteria as abdominal pain related to defecation and/or change in bowel habit without detectable organic causes and currently seen as an example of disturbed gut-brain communication, interferes with the quality of life of an increasing number of people. Multiple factors may drive the onset and pathophysiology of IBS, with certain food…

The gut microbiome has captured the attention of both researchers and society, and important progress was made in 2019 in our understanding of its emerging role in health and disease. Although gut microbiome science is moving progressively from the bench to the bedside, much research in the field has looked at cataloguing the composition and function of gut microbial communities,…

Aging is a physiological process that results in changes observable to the naked eye (appearance of a few more wrinkles, hair whitening, change in stature or posture…) but also other changes less observable (increased frailty). Aging-related changes also occur within our digestive tract, but they are not always easy for the human eye to detect. Diet and host genetics are…

Alcoholic hepatitis is considered to be a severe form of alcohol-related liver disease with a high mortality rate in the first 1 to 6 months after diagnosis. The overgrowth of intestinal Enterococcus faecalis—a member of the healthy human gut microbiome that can flourish due to gastric acid suppression and after antibiotic treatment and which is involved in nosocomial infections—has been…

On the threshold of a new year, it’s the perfect time to review the great progress made in research on gut microbiota, probiotics and prebiotics, nutrition and gut health in 2019. We have shared more than 40 articles discussing these achievements on our platform over the past 12 months, along with a further 3 new GMFH infographics and 4 video…

While the composition of your microbiota remains fairly stable in adulthood, it is subject to variations in the first years of life and among seniors, some of which are more significant than others! Factors such as delivery mode, diet and antibiotic treatments all have an impact on the development of our gut microbiota, along with its diversity and richness. This…
