Probiotics and bone health: Pr Roberto Pacifici will present the recent scientific advances and perspectives

Roberto Pacifici Microbiota

Numerus studies have shown that probiotics have positive effects in bone. The team of Prof. Pacifici and others have reported that probiotics prevent the loss of bone induced by estrogen deficiency. Probiotics prevent the bone loss induced by sex steroid deficiency by activating signaling pathways in enterocytes that promote gut barrier integrity.

During Berlin Microbiota Congress 2017, Prof. Roberto Pacifici from Emory University School of Medicine, USA will present the different pathways which promote gut barrier integrity.
