The idea of a universal diet for everyone is beginning to be considered as a simplistic approach, as it does not take into account each person’s unique nature in relation to a range of dimensions, including metabolism and microbiome. That is why the scientific community has suggested moving from a ‘one-size-fits-all’ approach to diet to an integrated personalized treatment approach.…

Although advances in the study of the human microbiome have taken place over the past decade mainly due to multi-omics network analyses, undetected unknowns remain. For instance, up to 40% of genes present in the Integrated Gene Catalogue of the human gut microbiome are unmapped to functional databases. Scientists from Stanford University (USA), One Codex (USA), Joint Genome Institute (USA),…

A major focus of gut microbiome research in early life is how delivery mode affects the newborn gut microbiota and its impact on the health of the growing child. Although previous studies revealed that infants born by Caesarean section (C-section) develop a gut microbiota composition that more closely resembles adult skin and the hospital environment, and which may predispose newborns…

The symbiotic relationship between host and microbes starts early in life and is important not only in terms of how the neonate microbiome ultimately develops, but also its potential impact on long-term infant health. A current ongoing debate within the scientific community is whether gut colonization starts during pregnancy or at birth. Indeed, the crucial question of when bacteria first…

Research Director at the French Research Institute in Agricultural Sciences, INRA, Dr. Joël Doré is currently President of the Executive Committee of the Pre-Industrial Demonstrator MetaGenoPolis, a platform of excellence dedicated to quantitative and functional metagenomics, funded by the French government Futures Investments. He is Deputy Head of the MICALIS institute “Food and Gut Microbiology for Human Health” and scientific board member of Microbiology Pole of the Doctoral School “Therapeutic Innovations” at Paris-XI University. Joël Doré received his PhD from the University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign, USA, in 1988. His main research interest is the molecular assessment of the human intestinal microbiota in health and disease and metagenomic investigation of the molecular cross-talk between intestinal bacteria and human cells. Dr. Doré has published >120 publications in peer reviewed scientific journals. His goal is to provide a better understanding of the intestinal ecosystem in order to support therapeutic choices in the medical area, as well as health claims for functional foods.

A lack of sun exposure/UVB radiation has been linked to a decrease in vitamin D synthesis, which has been hypothesized to be one of the environmental factors related to the current rise in immune-related conditions through involving the gut microbiota. However, mouse and small human observational studies that showed associations between vitamin D and the gut microbiome do not allow…

Recurrent abdominal pain, which refers to functional abdominal pain disorders under the Rome IV classification, is a common problem affecting up to 25% of school-age children. As an organic cause is missing with this condition, parents of children affected by functional abdominal pain consider diet and behavioral therapies as methods of managing recurring problems. Although the treatment of functional abdominal…
