Journal of Probiotics & Health is one of the leading Scholarly journals in probiotics and health. The journal strives to add in theoretical and technological innovations as part of its publishing remit and is devoted to publishing the highest quality papers. The administration of the journal is integrative, reflecting the fact that imaging neuroscience is a multi-disciplinary science.
The Microbiome is a heterogeneous system consisting of millions of microbes that share our body space, leading some to suggest it is a ânewly discovered organ. It has been shown that the interaction between the microbiome and its host play a major role in immune modulation, as well as in several metabolic functions. Colonization of the gut starts before birth, and is dependent on known factors such as mode of delivery, type of feeding and gestational age. Disequilibrium between the beneficial and pathogenic bacteria of the gut will lead to alteration in the defence barrier mechanisms and in immune functions, and is associated with a number of acute and chronic conditions, such as sepsis, NEC, inflammatory bowel disease (IBD), type 2 diabetes, allergy and obesity. Supplemental bacteria have been demonstrated to modulate a variety of disorders in children and adults, including: inflammatory bowel diseases; bowel cancer, ulcerative colitis; irritable bowel syndrome, obesity, cholesterol levels and diarrhea, secondary to oral antibiotics.
OMICS is devoted to the prompt publication of original findings of the highest scientific priority and value that provide novel mechanistic insights, represent a clear advance over previous Studies and have the potential to generate exciting future research.
