Deciphering the link between skin allergies and the gut microbiota
publié le September 24, 2018
Over the last few years, scientists have discovered connections between gut microbiota imbalances and various diseases. Now, in a study using mice, biologists from the CNRS, INSERM, and Claude Bernard Lyon 1 University —together with colleagues from the Institut Pasteur de Lille and the NIH (USA)— have revealed a surprising relationship between a viral detection system, the composition of the gut microbiota, and the development of skin allergies. Their findings, published in PNAS (September 24, 2018) suggest potential new therapies.
