Newsletter #168
February 13th, 2020


Dear Friends,

We begin this edition of our newsletter with a new document released by the GMFH publishing team: Year at a Glance 2019! With an editorial by our new Head of Editorial Rene van den Wijngaard, the publication contains a selection of Gut Microbiota for Health content from 2019.  

Next up, we have a new review from the special “Food and Diet for Gut Function and Dysfunction” issue in the peer-reviewed open access journal Nutrients. Led by Magnus Simrén, it explores the scientific evidence regarding dietary management of IBS.

You will also come across two studies highlighting how circadian rhythms affect crucial immune cells in the gut that are needed for proper interaction with nutrients and commensal bacteria. 

Finally, we have a new study that shows how a common gut microbiome bacterium might be involved in damage to liver cells related to alcoholic hepatitis. 

Happy reading!
