SA01d - "Go with Your Gut": How Far Can You Go with Changing Your Microbiome?


Feb 15, 2014 9:30am ‐ Feb 15, 2014 10:00am

Description

The composition and function of the microbial communities within the body can influence the innate and adaptive arms of our immune system. A better understanding of the microbiome is radically redefining the idea of self vs. non-self and the not always symbiotic relationship between the microbiome and the immune response leading to potential for collateral damage to the allograft. Is it feasible to change your microbiome and is this most amenable to change by probiotics, diet, or fecal transplantation?
