Gut Microbiota-Neuron-Treg Triangle

MicrobiotaMi Comment 25_21
by Benedetta Sposito

It is well known that the microbiota influences the development and skewing of the intestinal immune system. Among the multiplicity of innate and adaptive immune cells that colonize the intestine, regulatory T cells (Tregs) are critical for maintaining tissue homeostasis and tolerance to commensal bacteria. Previous reports have described the ability of specific commensals to induce differentiation of RORγ+ Tregs in the mouse colon. Interestingly, these microbial ...

Ecology of the multi-kingdom human gut microbiota assembly: insights from preterm infants

MicrobiotaMi Comment 24_21
by Giulia Colombo

The new-born human gut is like a desert island for the microbiota: in fact, it evolves predictably with pioneer species colonizing the gut after birth, followed by an ordered succession of microorganisms. This colonizing process can be studied in a privileged manner in preterm infants, as well as the potentially shaping influences of the environment, the host and interactions ...

Lung cancer and oral microbiota: possible connections in never-smokers

MicrobiotaMi Comment 23_21
by Marco Tonelli

Lung cancer is the first cause of death among cancer-related deaths. The majority of cases is related to tobacco smoking, nevertheless, 25% of lung cancer cases occur in non-smokers. As we already know, there are lots of other risk factors, such as household and outdoor air pollution, secondhand tobacco smoke, radon exposure and so on. The study by Hosgood et al., published on Thorax, aims at finding an association between ...
