Dear Friends,

GMFH is looking forward to participating in the 21st International Congress of Nutrition (ICN), coming up in Buenos Aires, October 15th to 20th! We're hosting a 2-hour session on the topic of "gut microbiota targets in nutrition", with speakers Joël Doré, Paul Enck, Torben Hansen, and Elena Verdú. This follows on the heels of a successful GMFH session at the recent European Federation of the Associations of Dietitians (EFAD) conference in Rotterdam -- check out the EFAD session on Twitter using the hashtag #GMFH_EFAD17.

In this newsletter, we cover findings on how the gut microbiome increases longevity in the C. elegans host, and on how antibiotic-induced maternal dysbiosis in rats increases the risk of colitis in genetically-susceptible offspring.

Turning to humans, we cover a new study investigating gut microbiota composition and function in pregnant women with gestational diabetes. And finally, we cover a study that explores the association of Prevotella and Bacteroides in the gut with different dietary patterns and shows that, with better resolution, different diet-microbiota correlations emerge.

New insights regarding how targeting the gut microbiome can improve longevity in the worm Caenorhabditis elegans

Previous research has shown the aging process and frailty may be associated with a perturbed gut microbiome in elderly people. Indeed, gut microbes could be a major driver of age-associated inflammation in mice, and specific...

Antibiotic-induced maternal dysbiosis in rats increases inflammatory bowel disease risk in genetically susceptible offspring

Previous research has shown antibiotics may increase the risk of immune-related diseases including inflammatory bowel disease (IBD) by disturbing the composition and functions of the gut microbiota. Although the use of antibiotics during the peripartum...

New study has discovered a connection between gut microbiota and gestational diabetes

Previous research has shown that the gut microbiome may modulate host metabolic health including the development of type 2 diabetes. However, little is known regarding the role of the gut microbiome in the aetiology of...

New study finds correlations between sub-genera of commensal bacteria and dietary patterns

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...
