World-leading ANPC scientists are investigating metabolic pathways and inflammatory profiles in pregnant women, infants and young children as a way to predict future disease and conditions such as allergies, obesity and mental health.
UCLA researchers have found that mice prone to obesity and diabetes metabolise fructose better after receiving faecal matter transplants from mice with more useful gut microbes.
World metabolomics expert Professor Jeremy Nicholson talks, pre-pandemic, with News-Medical.net about some of the world’s most pressing and costly healthcare challenges – and how to combat them from the inside out.
Could a specific strain of bacteria in a person’s gut make infection more likely on exposure to SARS CoVid-2? A group of UNSW scientists proposed this in a recent paper, and findings of mid-scale human trials lend weight to their hypothesis.
While we can control our external environments only so far, we can help protect ourselves from the SARS-2 virus by buttressing our internal defences, say experts in the field.
Is there a link between the gut microbiome and weight loss? Yes, say world-leading experts in the emerging field of personalised nutrition.
Recent research has found that eating a Mediterranean diet causes microbiome changes linked to better cognitive function and memory, immunity and bone strength, notes Prof. Paul O’Toole in this article from The Conversation.
