The Gut Microbiome: Markers of Human Health, Drug Efficacy and Xenobiotic Toxicity

Posted by: | May 22, 2018 | Comments

The gut microbiome is believed to play an important role in human health in areas as diverse as brain function and the immune system. Exploring host-microbiome interactions will provide a mechanistic understanding and enable new insights in human diseases (i.e., their diagnosis, prognosis and treatment) and new perceptions of xenobiotic efficacy and/or toxicity. This workshop will review the science and initiate discussions on multiple topics, including a) identification of biomarkers of toxicity for alterations in gut microbial function, b) if changes in the microbiome can affect efficacy of medicines and c) if exposure to xenobiotics can eventually result in a disease state through changes in the microbiome. Conclusions from this workshop will help determine where the data gaps are so that researchers can start answering these questions.
