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…

It is known, as we have already explained in this blog, that inflammatory bowel diseases (IBD) like Crohn’s disease, and ulcerative colitis, are linked to an imbalance in gut microbiota, known as dysbiosis. Nevertheless, the reason explaining this connection remains a mystery for scientists. It is also known from previous research that oral bacteria do not tend to live in…

By Kristina Campbell with contributions from Cristina Sáez   Imagine wearing oven mitts while you brush your teeth: this is how one 70-year-old woman described the experience of having Parkinson’s disease (PD). More than 10 million people worldwide suffer from this progressive neurological condition characterized by tremors, muscle stiffness, and slowness of movement. Because of the changes in motor function,…

Recently, there has been a huge change in the perception of microbial diseases and a shift in the understanding of how to treat them. It is now recognized that there are few disorders that can be attributed to the presence or absence of a single organism. Rather, the structure of the entire community of microbes constituting the human microbiota often…
