  • 479 Accesses

Part of the Europeanization and Globalization book series (EAG,volume 5)

Abstract

Microbes living in and on us have been recognized in the last decade as important part of ourselves and have been assigned a status of an organ with a wide range of functions—from metabolizing food to training our immune system. The intraindividual and interindividual variation of normal microbiota is vast and its composition is influenced by various external factors—most notable being diet, antibiotics and medication. External factors can cause a disturbance in microbiota frequently termed as dysbiosis which is often associated with a range of diseases—from inflammatory bowel disease and diabetes to obesity and cancer. Pioneering works in manipulating the microbiota for preventing and treating disease shows huge promise but also open a number of questions—from standardization and safety to personalization and reproducibility.
