Special Issue Information

Dear Colleagues,

The importance of microbiota in determining health and disease is a topic that has gained more and more visibility over the last few years. Microbiota has been implied in many gastrointestinal conditions, but also in other disorders—for instance, autoimmune diseases and even cancer in some cases. In particular, microbiota appears to play an important role in modulating immune response.

The full extent of the importance of microbiota, though, is still not completely understood, and many areas are still grey in this field. In this Special Issue, we hope to collect relevant papers focusing on the role of microbiota in different conditions. Authors are welcome to send different types of articles, focusing on microbiota and its role in different conditions. We encourage authors to focus on the role of the immune system in these interactions.

Dr. Laura Franza
Guest Editor
