The current antibiotic resistance epidemic is reaching levels higher than previously reported. And the roots of this epidemic can be found not only in an increase in outpatient antibiotic use, but also on the high proportions of resistant bacteria transmitted from food-producing animals. The effects of antibiotics on human gut bacterial diversity is of particular relevance during early life. It…

Emerging research is focusing on the study of the oral microbiome for predicting diseases, as it has been related not only with oral health but also as an indicator for screening and monitoring Crohn’s disease and ulcerative colitis patients. Even though the oral microbiome is not currently included in the GMFH list of topics, we need to keep up-to-date with…

Gut microbial colonization during early life influences human physiology, including the maturation of the immune system, nutrient absorption and metabolism, and the prevention of pathogen colonization. Although extensive microbial colonization of neonates begins postpartum, the source and transmission routes by which an infant acquires maternal microbes is poorly understood. Two recent studies published in Cell Host Microbe have provided a…
