Antibiotics and Microbiomas: The Era of Resistance

Human diseases arise and develop due to a combination of many external infectious and environmental factors and the genetic background. The most important role in confronting diseases is played by the so-called microbiota – the population of microorganisms of the intestine. A person gets both the necessary nutritional components and a whole set of allogenic chemical compounds with food – antibiotics, toxins that negatively affect the microbiota. Analysis of the most complex interactions of microorganisms of the intestine and macroorganism is the key to understanding complex diseases and their consequences. Within the session, we will discuss the role of the microbiota in the metabolism of many nutrients and the formation of immunity and the role of allogenic factors in the modification of the microbiota itself. World scientists have already conducted thousands of microbiota tests and were able to determine which microbiota configurations are optimal for patients and how to influence bacteria to achieve a balance.
