The Gut Microbiome and its Role in Early Immune Development and Allergies

Speakers: Liam O’Mahony

Presented at Pediatric Allergy & Asthma Meeting (PAAM) 2019

Summary

The human gut is colonized by a wide diversity of microbes, representing highly evolved synergistic relationships that provide essential biological functions to the host. The development of the gut microbiome in early life is influenced by lifestyle factors, social interactions, environmental exposures and diet. Nutritional strategies to support microbiome development may complement the existing treatment of Cow’s Milk Protein Allergy.
