Early differences in fecal microbiota composition in children may predict overweight.
TLDR
Aberrant compositional development of the gut microbiota precedes overweight, offering new possibilities for preventive and therapeutic applications in weight management.
Distinct patterns of neonatal gut microflora in infants in whom atopy was and was not developing.
TLDR
Differences in the neonatal gut microflora precede the development of atopy, suggesting a crucial role of the balance of indigenous intestinal bacteria for the maturation of human immunity to a nonatopic mode.
Probiotics during pregnancy and breast-feeding might confer immunomodulatory protection against atopic disease in the infant.
TLDR
It is shown that administering probiotics to the pregnant and lactating mother increased the immunoprotective potential of breast milk, as assessed by the amount of anti-inflammatory transforming growth factor beta2 (TGF-beta2) in the milk.
A possible link between early probiotic intervention and the risk of neuropsychiatric disorders later in childhood: a randomized trial
TLDR
Probiotic supplementation early in life may reduce the risk of neuropsychiatric disorder development later in childhood possible by mechanisms not limited to gut microbiota composition.
Mode of Delivery – Effects on Gut Microbiota and Humoral Immunity
TLDR
It is demonstrated that the mode of delivery may have, possibly via gut microbiota development, significant effects on immunological functions in the infant and its impact on mucosal immunity is evaluated.
Microarray analysis reveals marked intestinal microbiota aberrancy in infants having eczema compared to healthy children in at-risk for atopic disease
TLDR
A diverse and adult-type microbiota in early childhood is associated with Eczema and it may contribute to the perpetuation of eczema.
