Throughout 2017 the gut microbiota research saw some major breakthroughs, and more than 50 articles have been published on our platform.

A new study by a group of scientists from Danone Nutricia Research (the Netherlands), the Laboratory of Microbiology at Wageningen University (the Netherlands), and the Department of Medicine at Imperial College London (United Kingdom) explored how the gut microbiota tracks eczema development in early life—and also whether gut microbiota composition was modulated by a prebiotic early-life dietary intervention.

When UK researcher Glenn R. Gibson introduced the concept of prebiotics to the scientific community in 1995 it was clear to him that the gut microbiota had the potential to play a major role in health.
