Special Issue Information

Dear Colleagues,

Recent findings related to dietary effects on gut and microbiota function and their relation to inflammation are generating even more research interest in this combination of diet-gut function-inflammation. New nutritional research methods open new possibilities in the investigation of this combination and underlying mechanisms of action. The link between food-related metabolites and their responses in our physiology and psychology, mediated by gut- and microbiota-related metabolism, is very complicated, but also a very interesting and active research area.

Thus, we would like to invite studies investigating diets and foods as an active participant in inflammation—both in anti-inflammatory and inflammatory function. In addition, we encourage submissions of studies investigating microbiota as the mediating factor and mechanism of the anti-inflammatory effect of food/diet. Metabolomics methodology may offer new answers or a new hypothesis to study this area further.

We hope you find this opportunity of interest; if so, please submit your work by July 2018 to our Special Issue: Diet and Food as Means and Mechanisms for Anti-Inflammation Gut-Related Mechanisms in Special Interest.
