In Mechanisms Underlying Host-Microbiome Interactions in Pathophysiology of Human Diseases (PDF) we provide a summary and discussion on the progress in the understanding of pathophysiological mechanisms of microbial host interactions in human diseases.

Only lately have we started to appreciate the role of the microbiome in health and disease. Change of lifestyle and environmental factors including diet significantly affect the human microbiome that in turn appears to change gut barrier function affecting nutrient & electrolyte absorption and inflammation. Approaches that can change gut dysbiosis represent as reasonable and novel strategies for reinstating the balance between host and microbes.

We will not only talk about the intestinal bacterial community but also fungi, viruses, and oral microbiome. Microbiome studies will help diagnosis, drug development, functional studies, and personalized medicine. Thus, this ebook will further focus on the microbiome in the context of health and disease, emphasizing mechanistic concepts that cause the complex relationships between microbes and host.
