Newsletter #184
September 30th, 2021


Dear Friends,

This time, our newsletter begins with an article about two new studies that come to contradictory findings on restoring maternal microbes immediately after birth, in the practice dubbed ‘vaginal seeding’, highlighting the need for more clinical trials before the practice is generalized. 

Next up, scientists have discovered a fungus that delays wound healing in mice and which is enriched in inflamed tissue from patients with Crohn’s disease. The findings emphasize the potential of studying fungi-host interactions in inflammatory bowel disease. You will also come across an article that clarifies the definition and health implications of the closely related terms fiber, microbiota-accessible carbohydrates and prebiotics. 

Finally, a new study led by Dr. Fernando Azpiroz elucidates how diet influences gut microbiota composition and metabolic activity, colon biomass and perception of digestive sensations in healthy individuals.

Happy reading!
