THE 11TH EDITION WILL BE ABOUT

 

Next-gen probiotics, prebiotics and postbiotics: Who, what & why?

Probiotics
This session will put in evidence the advances of research and clinical applications of probiotic, 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 for product 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 be stimulated on:
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 fiber 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
