Debugging the intestinal microbiota in IBD

Publication Date
  • Biology
  • Medicine


Besides its role in repelling enteropathogenic infections, the gastrointestinal tract is in intimate contact with commensal microbiota. Tremendous advances have been made in determining the pivotal role of the microbiota, in both tissue homeostasis and metabolism, as well as in the initiation and maintenance of inflammatory lesions in inflammatory bowel diseases. A better understanding of human gut microbiota could provide innovative targets for treating and/or curing such common immunopathologies of the gastrointestinal tract. (C) 2009 Elsevier Masson SAS.
