Restoring the Microbiome



How to restore the Microbiome?

Having established that disturbed and depleted microbiomes are disrupting the healthy function of metaorganisms, ultimately leading to disease, scientists began to explore possibilities to manipulate the microbial composition of the body in an attempt to restore health. It became clear that it is indeed possible to change microbiome compositions through different interventions. Those advances in host-microbe research fuelled expectations that the microbiome might be a future therapeutic target to treat metabolic diseases related to dysbiosis. Find out how the experts address the question if and how the microbiome could be restored?
