Special Issue Information

Dear colleagues,

This special issue will focus on how human health is affected positively and negatively by bacteria. Original research papers and review articles on characterization of factors involved in the virulence and survival of various pathogenic bacteria, bacterial toxin-antitoxin systems, variations in human gut microbiome under a variety of disease and non-disease conditions will be included in this issue.

Manuscript Submission Information

Manuscripts should be submitted online at www.mdpi.com by registering and logging in to this website. Once you are registered, click here to go to the submission form. Manuscripts can be submitted until the deadline. All papers will be peer-reviewed. Accepted papers will be published continuously in the journal (as soon as accepted) and will be listed together on the special issue website. Research articles, review articles as well as short communications are invited. For planned papers, a title and short abstract (about 100 words) can be sent to the Editorial Office for announcement on this website.

Submitted manuscripts should not have been published previously, nor be under consideration for publication elsewhere (except conference proceedings papers). All manuscripts are thoroughly refereed through a single-blind peer-review process. A guide for authors and other relevant information for submission of manuscripts is available on the Instructions for Authors page. Healthcare is an international peer-reviewed open access quarterly journal published by MDPI.

Please visit the Instructions for Authors page before submitting a manuscript. The Article Processing Charge (APC) for publication in this open access journal is 550 CHF (Swiss Francs). Submitted papers should be well formatted and use good English. Authors may use MDPI's English editing service prior to publication or during author revisions.

Helicobacter pylori is a bacterium that selectively infects the gastric epithelium of half of the world population. The microbiome, community of microorganisms gained major interest over the last years, due to its modification associated to health and disease states. Even if most of these descriptions have focused on chronic disorders, this review describes the impact of the intestinal bacterial microbiome on host response to Helicobacter associated diseases. Microbiome has a direct impact on host cells, major barrier of the gastro-intestinal tract, but also an indirect impact on immune system stimulation, by enhancing or decreasing non-specific or adaptive response. In microbial infections, especially in precancerous lesions induced by Helicobacter pylori infection, these modifications could lead to different outcome. Associated to data focusing on the microbiome, transcriptomic analyses of the eukaryote response would lead to a complete understanding of these complex interactions and will allow to characterize innovative biomarkers and personalized therapies.
