Microbiota, bacterial translocation, and inflammation in chronic kidney disease

Ducloux targeting microbiota 2017Dr. Didier Ducloux from CHU (Central hospitalier universitaire) Besançon, France will talk about "Microbiota, bacterial translocation, and inflammation in chronic kidney disease" during the 5th Targeting Microbiota World Congress 2017.

According to Dr. Didier Ducloux: "Chronic inflammation in end-stage renal disease (ESRD) is partly attributed to gut bacterial translocation (GBT) due to a loss of intestinal epithelium integrity, associated with alteration of the structure and function of the gut microbiota. We recently reported the evolution of both microbiota and bacterial translocation after successful kidney transplantation. Here, we summarize evidence of septic inflammation in ESRD and suggest new therapeutic strategies to reverse ESRD-inflammation and its consequences."
