Environmental factors and their impact on the intestinal microbiota: a role for human disease?


Biedermann, Luc; Rogler, Gerhard (2012). Environmental factors and their impact on the intestinal microbiota: a role for human disease? Digestive Diseases, 30(Suppl. 3):20-27.

Abstract

The intestinal microbiota and its potential role in human health and disease have come into the focus of interest in recent years. An important prerequisite for the achieved advances with regard to a better characterization of its complex composition and influencing factors is the increasing availability and affordability of culture-independent methods, such as high-throughput sequencing technologies. We discuss some general aspects of the intestinal microbiota. Recent insights into its potential pathogenetic role in the metabolic syndrome and inflammatory bowel disease will also be discussed that imply an impact of smoking status and smoking cessation on intestinal microbial composition.

TrendTerms

TrendTerms displays relevant terms of the abstract of this publication and related documents on a map. The terms and their relations were extracted from ZORA using word statistics. Their timelines are taken from ZORA as well. The bubble size of a term is proportional to the number of documents where the term occurs. Red, orange, yellow and green colors are used for terms that occur in the current document; red indicates high interlinkedness of a term with other terms, orange, yellow and green decreasing interlinkedness. Blue is used for terms that have a relation with the terms in this document, but occur in other documents.
You can navigate and zoom the map. Mouse-hovering a term displays its timeline, clicking it yields the associated documents.
