Metabolic disturbances and the intestinal microbiome

Luigi F. Meneghini

Research output: Contribution to journalEditorialpeer-review


The gut microbiome, which can be affected by dietary and other "environmental" conditions, appears to have an important role in health and disease. A better understanding of the impact of changes in our gut microflora, as well as the determinants of these changes, represents an opportunity to address a number of acute and chronic disease conditions through novel mechanisms and therapeutic approaches.
