Gut microbiota plays important role in functional bowel disorders
Date:2/26/2013

(24 February 2013) An estimated 50 per cent of patients consulting a gastroenterologist suffer from functional bowel disorders (FBD), such as dyspepsia or irritable bowel syndrome (IBS). It is characteristic for these conditions that underlying physiological mechanisms are hard to be found. "However, recent research shows that the gut microbiota is a likely candidate for filling some of the gaps in the causal chain leading to FBD," says Professor Fernando Azpiroz, Chairman of the Gut Microbiota & Health Section of the European Society of Neurogastroenterology & Motility (ESNM). Further information on this issue one of three topics to be presented at Tuesday's online press conference on the occasion of the 2nd World Summit "Gut Microbiota For Health" in Madrid, Spain can be found at http://bit.ly/SUN24PR.

World-leading experts will inform about the gut microbiota's impact on health during an online press conference on Tuesday, 26 February 2013, 8 a.m. ET (14.00-5.30 h CET), moderated by UK media medic Dr Mark Porter, best known for his television and radio work for the BBC. The following questions will be dealt with:

  • In what way does the gut microbiota influence functional bowel disorders?
    Speaker: Prof. Fernando Azpiroz, Barcelona, Spain

  • Can faecal microbiota transplantation be used to treat recurrent Clostridium difficile infection?
    Speaker: Prof. Lawrence Brandt, New York, USA

  • The gutbrain axis: can probiotics have a positive effect on mental health?
    Speaker: Prof. Emeran Mayer, Los Angeles, USA
