"Microbial dysbiosis in asthma”
Please join us for this talk, on Wednesday the 27th of November, AV Hill 1.006, 11:00.
In recent decades, complex chronic inflammatory diseases have been rapidly increasing, with allergic diseases such as asthma, reaching unprecedented prevalence. To a large extent this is attributed to “self-inflicted” dysregulation of external and internal microbial communities with which we have codeveloped. By systematically exploring and discovering patterns of microbial dysbiosis associated with different disease aspects, we have achieved a better understanding of pathophysiology and natural history, as well as developing prognostic biomarkers. As a next step, intervention studies aiming at reinstating a eubiotic microbiome are been designed.
