Dear Friends,

This newsletter begins by reporting on an important development in the field of gut microbiota: the new consensus definition of prebiotics, as recently published in Nature Reviews Gastroenterology & Hepatology. See below for our interview with Glenn R. Gibson, co-author of both the consensus definition and the 1995 paper that first introduced the concept of prebiotics.

We follow this with three articles focusing on human studies: The first study explores what the gut microbiota of infants can reveal about eczema development and whether it can be modulated by a prebiotic intervention. The next study shows evidence that the gut microbiome might be the link between poor sleep habits and lower cognitive flexibility in older adults, and the final study describes an association between cystic fibrosis and gut microbiota composition and function.

What can the gut microbiota of infants reveal about eczema development?


To date, no effective strategy has been identified for reliably preventing the development of eczema and allergy in children at high risk of these conditions. Eczema (atopic dermatitis) is typically one of the first allergic...

A new study has found the gut microbiome could be the link between poor sleep habits and lower cognitive flexibility in older adults


Previous research has found that partial sleep deprivation alters the human gut microbiome. Besides this, data broadly suggest sleep and cognitive functioning are related in older age. However, there is no data regarding the involvement...

Association found between cystic fibrosis and gut microbiota composition and functionality


Gut microbiome research has recently focused not only in gastrointestinal diseases, but also in other conditions with systemic effects beyond the gut. Cystic fibrosis (CF) is a progressive genetic disease that affects the lungs: both...
