The Gut Microbiome in Infants with CMPA - Implications for Treatment
Our commensal gut microbiota influence physiological, immunological and metabolic processes. Gut microbiota variation has been implicated in cow’s milk allergy development and specific microbial signatures have been associated with tolerance acquisition. There is emerging evidence that nutritional strategies can program gut microbial composition and functionality for improved health outcomes
In her presentation, Dr Christina West describes the role of the gut microbiota and its importance for immune development; the relation between dysbiosis in early life and cow’s milk allergy and how nutritional strategies can program gut microbial composition and functionality for improved health outcomes.
