The eleventh edition will be about

NEXT-GEN PROBIOTICS, PREBIOTICS AND POSTBIOTICS: WHO, WHAT & WHY?

Probiotics

This session will underline the advances of research and clinical applications of probiotics,
stimulating the discussion on:

  • Probiotics 2.0: new indications
  • Revision of clinical studies
  • Novel formulations and delivery systems
  • Regulatory

Prebiotics

The composition and function of host gut microbiota can be impacted through the consumption of prebiotics. This session will review the definition of prebiotic and elaborate future frameworks forproduct development, encouraging the discussion on:

  • Criteria for the classification of prebiotics
  • New baseline for prebiotic innovation
  • Discussion on the chances of prebiotics to improve gut heath
  • Regulatory

Postbiotics

Metabolomics is increasing the evidence that postbiotics have a role similar to that of probiotics in maintaining health. The discussion will focus on:

  • How to better understand the role of bacterial metabolites
  • Applications to the food, nutrition and nutraceutics
  • Audit of well-studied postbiotic ingredients
  • Discussing pathways and health benefits
  • Regulatory

GUT BRAIN AXIS

Many preclinical and clinical studies demonstrate gut-brain mechanisms of action in neurological disorders.

  • It is important to define what the bacterial metabolites are and which influence they have on the gut-brain axis communication and cognitive processes at multiple levels, and how do they operate in molecular mechanisms
  • It is necessary to implement and translate these data into therapeutic trials delineating the role of the gut microbiota, diet and metabolites to prevent disease progression in, Autism, Depression, Parkinson, Alzheimer

BOTANICALS, MICROBIAL MEDIATORS AND INTESTINAL HOMEOSTASIS

  • Botanicals impact the gut microbiome and intestinal homeostasis
  • Exosome-like nanoparticles (ELNs) mediate communication with gut microbiota
  • The impact of botanicals and fibers on the fermentation capabilities of gut microbiota:
    • Why does the same dietary fiber impact the composition of the microbiota differently in different people?
    • Do different people produce different metabolites from the same dietary fiber input?
    • Is it possible to devise personalized nutrition strategies?
  • Botanicals and Immunity

PROBIOTICS, PREBIOTICS AND BOTANICALS IN HEALTH AND IN DISEASES

  • Gastro-intestinal diseases
  • Gut liver axis
  • Gut kidney axis
  • Gut skin axis
  • Obesity, DiabetesType-2, Metabolic Syndrome
