It has recently become evident that many factors play pivotal roles in the diagnosis and management of systemic health. The human microbiota is a super organ in our body. When the microbiota is disrupted, which is called dysbiosis, the occurrence of diseases is then increased and management becomes complex. Metabolic patients with dysbiotic microbiota are most at risk for cardiovascular disease. Moreover, dysbiosis of the microbiota is also involved in many systemic diseases, such as diabetes, obesity, autoimmune rheumatic disease, and cancer. In this Special Issue, we will address the nature of the human microbiota and how it affects systemic pathologies with bidirectional interactions. Exploration of the human microbiota may be a key factor, and its diagnostic may contribute to chronic metabolic diseases or human diseases. The role of human microbiota (oral, gut, skin) is the next evolution for biology and medicine. We are also interested in future therapeutic strategies. The discovery of the implications of microbiota for the control of systemic diseases could represent a new method for personalized medicine.
