GMFH is pleased to announce the program for the 7th edition of the Gut Microbiota for Health World Summit, to be held in Rome on March 10th and 11th, 2018! Check out the top-notch list of speakers, chosen by the Gut Summit's scientific committee under the leadership of Dr. Francisco Guarner, Head of the Gastrointestinal Research Unit at Vall d’Hebron University Hospital in Barcelona (Spain).

In our penultimate newsletter of 2017, we also highlight an article on gut microbiota in older age: that is, a cross-sectional study from China showing the gut microbiota of very healthy people--up to 100 years old--is similar to that of healthy 30-year-olds.

Next we bring you two reviews of hot topics within the field of gut microbiota: (1) how resistant starch affects the gut microbiota, and the mechanisms by which it could affect host nutrition and health, and (2) how the mycobiome is relevant to chronic intestinal inflammation and how knowledge about bacterial-fungal interactions might yield new treatment approaches for inflammatory bowel disease. The final piece gets more specific with a study on how a high-fat diet in mice can alter the way bacteria and fungi interact within the intestines, contributing to obesity.

Rome to host 7th edition of Gut Microbiota for Health World Summit

The gut microbiota of exceedingly healthy elderly people (up to 100 years old) is similar to that of healthy 30-year-olds

Since Elie Metchnikoff first linked gut microbes and intake of fermented foods to health and longevity, there has been increasing interest in how ageing affects the gut microbiota composition and functional diversity to promote health...

A new review explores the latest knowledge about resistant starch in nutrition and as a modulator of the gut microbiota

When it comes to studying the effects of complex dietary carbohydrates on the gut microbiota, resistant starch (RS) is a type of dietary fibre that is receiving increasing attention as a dietary intervention that can...

A new review explores how targeting gut bacteria and fungi interactions may help manage chronic intestinal inflammation

Research in the gut microbiome field has usually only focused on resident bacteria and the related bacterial-host interactions. However, emerging scientific evidence suggests that studying the human fungal community (called mycobiome) could help us better...

A high-fat diet can alter relationships between gut bacteria and fungi, contributing to obesity in mice

It has been suggested that there is a relationship between dietary patterns, gut microbiota and the development of obesity; one of the leading theories is based on altered permeability of the gut barrier as a...
