Special Issues, Collections and Topics in MDPI journals
The term "probiotic" was coined by the Nobel prize winner Ilia Metchnikoff more than 100 years ago, who hypothesized that health could be enhanced and senility delayed by manipulating the intestinal microbiome with bacteria found in yogurt. The development of modern, culture-independent ways to study the microbiome composition at various sites within and outside the human body has greatly enlarged our knowledge on the role of the microbiome in health and disease. However, many of these studies are descriptive and report associations rather than causality. Furthermore, there is a high demand for therapeutic strategies that utilize or target the human microbiome to prevent or treat diseases and to understand the interaction of drugs with the human gut microbiome. With this Collection of the journal Nutrients, this knowledge gap should be filled by high-quality data on the effect of "Microbiome Modulation for Human Health".
