Drugs and the gut microbiota
Health outcomes of drugs-gut microbiota interactions

Synopsis of the course

The contribution of the gut microbiota to food and drug metabolism and human immune system regulation is a recent discovery with potentially enormous clinical consequences.

In recent years, it is becoming increasingly clear that chemical compounds present in drugs or their metabolites can impact microbial composition in the gut and impair their functional contributions to the host. On the other hand, the microbiome plays a clinically relevant role in drug disposition.

Pharmacomicrobiomics seeks to understand how inter-individual variations in the microbiome shape drug efficacy and side effect profiles. Multiple bacterial species, genes, and enzymes have been implicated in the biotransformation of drugs.

Anyway, drug–microbe interactions are still understudied in the clinical context, thus more research seeking to establish clinically-validated microbially-related parameters is the next horizon in this fascinating field of biomedical research.
