about

The Microbiota in Gastrointestinal Pathophysiology: Implications for Human Health, Prebiotics, Probiotics and Dysbiosis is a one-stop reference on the state-of-the-art research on gut microbial ecology in relation to human disease. This important resource starts with an overview of the normal microbiota of the gastrointestinal tract, including the esophagus, stomach, Ileum, and colon.

The book then identifies what a healthy vs. unhealthy microbial community looks like, including methods of identification. Also included is insight into which features and contributions the microbiota make that are essential and useful to host physiology, as is information on how to promote appropriate mutualisms and prevent undesirable dysbioses. Through the power of synthesizing what is known by experienced researchers in the field, current gaps are closed, raising understanding of the role of the microbiome and allowing for further research.

  • Explains how to modify the gut microbiota and how the current strategies used to do this produce their effects
  • Explores the gut microbiota as a therapeutic target
  • Provides the synthesis of existing data from both mainstream and non-mainstream sources through experienced researchers in the field
  • Serves as a ‘one-stop’ shop for a topic that’s currently spread across a number of various journals
