A current overview of gut microbiota and inflammation

Over 150 studies were reviewed in this publication to correlate gut bacteria and the prevention and treatment of inflammation. They concluded that ‘individuals may possess bacteria associated with pro-inflammatory effects whilst others may harbour those with anti-inflammatory effects.’ Further research to continually improve our understanding of the inflammatory pathways that interact with bacteria may elucidate reasons behind varying presentations of the same disease and varied responses to the same treatment in different individuals. Prospective prebiotic or probiotic therapies could include anti-inflammatory microbes in clinical practice in the future.
