■ Special issue information
The human gastrointestinal tract (GIT) plays an important role in food intake and consumption accompanied with gut microbiome. The human gut microbiome in GIT is a diverse and complicated ecosystem, consisting of approximately 40 trillion microorganisms and most of them are bacteria. Recent studies have shown that gut microbiota plays a critical role in overall human health and immune regulation, and dysbiosis of gut microbiota believes to be one of the main causes of various intractable or chronic diseases. Interestingly, it has also been revealed that probiotics (the host beneficial microorganisms), prebiotics (food for beneficial gut inhabitants), synbiotics (combination of probiotic strains and prebiotic foods), and postbiotics (metabolites produced from the interaction of probiotics and prebiotics) have significant impacts on desirable modulation of the gut microbiota composition for prevention and/or treatment of various human diseases. Many studies have reported that their ingestion may be effective for alleviation of symptoms including obesity and Type-2 diabetes mellitus, inflammatory bowel disease, inflammatory bowel syndrome, and allergic disorders. Furthermore, human health promotion by ingestion of pro-, pre-, syn-, and postbiotics has been suggested to be significantly correlated with gut-brain axis, gut-immune axis, gut-liver axis, gut-skin axis, gut-heart axis, gut-lung axis, and gut-kidney axis via the recovery of gut microbiota. Therefore, as functional food ingredients, their consumptions have been believed to be important for human health prevention and promotion.
This special issue will contain articles describing pro-, pre-, syn- and postbiotics, which can modulate the gut microbiota composition and their implication on gut recovery, immune modulation, and overall human health.
The subjects covered by this special issue are;
- Comprehensive review on the role of the gut microbiome in human health
- All issues related to the role of the gut microbiome in health and disease
- The role of the gut microbiome in domestic animal health
- Animal models for microbiome research
- Cross-scale analysis of animal and human gut microbiome
- Influence of diet on the gut microbiome and implications for human health
- Analysis of food microbiome for safety and process management
- Development and application of probiotics, prebiotics, synbiotics, postbiotics
- The role of probiotics, prebiotics, synbiotics, and prebiotics on the gut microbiome
- Health benefits of probiotics, prebiotics, synbiotics, and postbiotics
- Next-generation probiotics, prebiotics, synbiotics, and prebiotics
- Safety issue on the probiotics, prebiotics, synbiotics, and postbiotics
