Gut Feelings about Immunity

Nature Medicine recently devoted an entire issue, July 2015, to  Inflammatory Disease, which of course caught our eye.  “A gut feeling about immunity”, by Roxanne Khamsi, explores the microbiome influence on the human immune system, and outlines various considerations of working with intestinal microbes to reduce harmful inflammation. Nice quotes from experts highlight the promise of probiotics/prebiotics, and point to the need for more evidence that the currently marketed products deliver on their claims. We’re working in this area, and have projects to help untangle the various factors that are involved, especially for those suffering with IBD and related gastro disorders.
