Intestinal microbiota plays a key role in human health, Disruption of the epithelium provokes activation of local and systemic immune system, leading to a variety of inflammatory, metabolic and neuro-degenerative pathologies. Probiotics and prebiotics are extensively developed to aid maintaining and repairing the impaired balance between intestinal microbiota and host immune response. Their selection and validation is a complex process. Ilia Belotserkovsky explores ex-vivo experimental approaches involving both human fecal microbiota and primary immune cells separated by intestinal epithelial barrier for pre- and probiotics evaluation.
