Mucosa-associated bacteria and their interactions with host cells: how can we feed the beneficial ones?

Mucosa-associated bacterial communities are important for gut health. Butyrate-producing bacteria seem essential. Feeding strategies (eg prebiotics such as AXOS, probiotics) can steer towards butyrogenic (mucosa-associated) taxa in the gut. Biomarkers of the host response are important tools for the development of future efficient gut health solution. Butyrate, even from dietary origin, seems to have potency to reduce effect of pathogens in the intestine.
