Human gut microbiome signature reflects healthy aging and predicts survival in the latest decades of life

Targeting Microbiota 2021 Sean M GibbonDr. Sean M. Gibbons from Institute for Systems Biology, University of Washington, USA will join the Targeting Microbiota 2021 congress and will present his recent study on Human gut microbiome signature reflects healthy aging and predicts survival in the latest decades of life.

Prof. Gibbons highlights: The ecological dynamics of the human gut microbiome are characterized by rapid change in early life (0-3 years), followed by a long period of stability, and ending with steady changes associated with advanced age (> 65 years). While certain aging-related patterns in the gut microbiota have been linked to a concomitant decline in health, there is no clear definition of 'healthy aging' from the perspective of the gut microbiome. We leverage three independent, large, deeply phenotyped cohorts to show how increasing gut microbiome uniqueness and an associated rise in anti-inflammatory microbial metabolites in the blood are associated with healthier aging and increased survival in the latest decades of life.
