Dysbiosis profiling and pediatric diseases: pattern correlations and bacterial dysfuntions.

Lorenza Putignani

Dr. Lorenza Putignani from Bambino Gesù Children's Hospital and Research Institute, Italy will present her study of "Dysbiosis profiling and pediatric diseases: pattern correlations and bacterial dysfuntions." during 5th Targeting Microbiota World Congress 2017.

According to her: "Programming in early life is associated to microbial ecology and chronological succession of competitive microbial communities. The assessment of eubiotic profiling in childhood needs to consider onset and modification of gut microbiota through development stages. Regardless these large modifications, microbiota profiling associated to pediatric diseases is very robust and stable, depending on age and geographic patterns. Fixed these parameters, dysbiotic levels can be defined and computed in childhood, providing an excellent  example of microbiota profiling".
