‘Navigating the complexity of the GI microbiome in clinical practice’ – with Invivo Healthcare

Presented by Humphrey Bacchus

At Invivo we pride ourselves in translating the wealth of complex information around GI microbiome into that which is clinically relevant. Patient outcomes govern what we do and with this in mind we created a new GI Panel called GI EcologiX. Throughout this heavy research process there were many discoveries to which we wish to share with you throughout this webinar and beyond.

In this webinar you will learn:

  • How to use systems theory thinking to view the human microbiome as being a dynamic and contextual rich ecosystem.
  • The importance of the GI immune system – including inflammation and antimicrobial peptides in health and disease.
  • Understand the role of ‘syntrophy’ in short chain fatty acid (SCFA) production by commensal bacteria.
  • Learn more about the importance of Bacteroides species – the good, the bad and the ugly.
  • Understand the different roles of key Ruminoccoccus species in both health and disease.
  • Learn about novel microbes and mycology involvement as triggers for inflammatory pathways and IBD in the GI tract.
  • The importance of molecular methodologies and endogenous gene controls in mapping the human microbiome.
  • Learn about the new comprehensive GI EcologiX microbiome test from Phylo Bioscience, a CQC registered UK microbiome laboratory.
