Human ageing is characterized by a chronic low-grade inflammation, termed “inflammaging”, that together with sarcopenia (muscle mass depletion and the reduction of muscle performance) and physical frailty (the loss of muscle performance and normal muscle mass) are significant risk factors for both morbidity and mortality in elderly people. Regarding the contribution of the aged gut microbiota in the host physiology,…

Recent research has explored how specific dietary components such as proteins, fats, carbohydrates, probiotics and polyphenols interact with the gut microbiome to confer health benefits on the host. Although high salt content in the Western diet is a public health concern, as it has been linked with several cardiovascular-related disorders, little is known about whether the deleterious effects of a…

Despite the widely known health benefits of whole grains in the diet, the mechanisms responsible for these benefits have remained elusive. The gut microbiome has been of particular interest, but previous studies have been inconclusive when it comes to identifying a consistent signature of whole grains on the gut microbiota. A new cross-over dietary intervention study has found that a…

Dietary components’ effects on host health are thought to be mediated in part by their specific effects on the gut microbiome. Probiotics and prebiotics are the most studied substrates, whereas little is known about the impact of dietary fats on the gut microbiome in human cohorts. A new study, led by Dr. Ana M. Valdes from the Faculty of Medicine…

Picture three people seated side-by-side on the airplane. The person in the middle has come down with the flu and spends the two-hour flight coughing, shivering, and drifting in and out of a feverish sleep. The others have good reason to be vexed—indeed, the person on the right ends up with the exact same symptoms the next day. The person…

Previous research has shown that the human gut microbiota may mediate suppression of carcinogenesis through its interaction with host immunity. Among cancer types, colorectal cancer (CRC) is the third most common cancer and the third leading cause of cancer death in the United States. However, little is known regarding whether manipulating the gut microbiota could help in its prevention and…

It’s well established that bacterial diversity rules in the gut: study after study of intestinal microbiota composition shows that groups of people with a disease have a less diverse gut microbial community than groups without the disease. In some cases, the lack of diversity is referred to as a ‘dysbiosis’. The tricky part is figuring out how the principle of…

Diet is a primary factor involved in shaping both the composition and function of the gut microbiota. Although previous research showed an association of the Prevotella genus with a plant-based diet and Bacteroides with a diet rich in animal protein and fat, more information is needed about whether these associations remain true for different species in each of the genera.…

His main interests are gut functions in health and disease, including functional and inflammatory bowel disorders, the role of the gut microbiota, regulation of eating and food intake and its disorders, of nausea, vomiting and motion sickness, and the psychophysiology and neurobiology of the placebo response, with specific emphasis on age and gender contributions. He has published more than 170 original data paper in scientific, peer-reviewed journals, and more than 250 book chapters and review articles.
