Here we are at the end of another productive year in the field of gut microbiota and health! Our editorial team has been keen on following all the latest developments of the past twelve months -- so in this newsletter, check out our editor's picks for the top advancements in gut microbiota science of 2017 (1).

Our selection of articles in this newsletter includes (2) a mouse study highlighting a mechanism by which the microbiota influence the gut immune system, (3) a study comparing the health-protective effects of the gut microbiota between wild mice and laboratory mice, and (4) a report showing the circumstances under which bacterial strains from the human salivary microbiota are able to colonize the mouse gut and induce chronic intestinal inflammation.

In the realm of nutrition and gut microbiota, see our interview (5) with Dr. Henrik Roager of the National Food Institute, Technical University of Denmark, on understanding gut microbiota responses to dietary whole grains.

As you begin to plan for the coming year, don't forget to check out the website for the 2018 GMFH World Summit, to be held in Rome on March 10th and 11th, 2018! We hope to see you there.

Wishing you a very happy 2018,
The GMFH publishing team

2017’s top advancements in gut microbiome science

Study reveals a new connection between the gut microbiota and autoimmune disorders

The gut microbiota exerts a miscellany of protective, structural and metabolic effects on the intestinal mucosa. Although it is well recognized that the composition of the colonizing gut microbiota contributes to normal immunity by educating...

Gut microbiota from wild mice help keep laboratory mice healthy

Germ-free mice have been used widely during the last decade for studying the relevance and effect of resident bacteria on host physiology and pathology. Experimental data using animals with controlled gut colonization have identified three...

Strains of Klebsiella spp. from the salivary microbiota may colonize the gut and induce chronic intestinal inflammation

Recent research has started focusing on the role of the oral microbiota in host health and exacerbation of some systemic diseases. Although increased levels of certain oral-derived microbes have been found in the gut microbiota...

Toward an understanding of personalized gut microbiota responses to dietary whole grains

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...
