Just released: Gut microbiota in the management of gastrointestinal symptoms by Dr. Eamonn Quigley

Synopsis of the course

Does the microbiota affect GI symptoms? The answer is yes, as largely demonstrated in the literature. But then, can we use the microbiota to treat GI symptoms? Join Dr. Eamonn Quigley in this review of the most recent and interesting data on the interaction between the microbiota and GI symptoms. We will review the effects of the microbiome on upper, and lower GI symptoms (focusing on IBS), bowel habit, bloating, flatulence, and distension, and we will get some practical tips to provide the best care to our patients with GI symptoms. Are you going to miss it?

The detection, prevention and treatment of gut microbiome dysbiosis by Prof. Francisco Guarner

Alterations in the gut microbiome may be implicated in the pathogenesis of several non-communicable diseases and in the transition of these conditions to chronicity. Many studies have shown links between fecal microbiota composition and disease, including metabolic, inflammatory and neoplastic disorders. However, the exact (if any) causative role that microbiota changes may have in those diseases remains unclear. Thus, there has been little translation of microbiome science into clinical practice so far, especially in the domains of diagnosis and prognosis, due to the lack of supportive evidence for test and treat strategies. Nevertheless, it is becoming clear that developing and maintaining gut microbiota diversity is a novel clinical target for health promotion and disease prevention, and that diet and probiotics are the natural and most efficient way to improve diversity.

Microbiota Hard Talks

The Microbiota Hard Talks is a series of six medical educational activities endorsed by the World Gastroenterology Organisation (WGO) and supported by an unrestricted medical educational grant from Biocodex France. The aim of The Microbiota Hard Talks is to provide medical education in the field of the human gut microbiota. These sessions offer the chance to join experts and like-minded colleagues from around the globe on state-of-the-art microbiota topics. Each session features a presentation by a renewed lecturer and includes a question and answer session.

Irritable Bowel Syndrome (IBS)

As part of World Digestive Health Day 2012, WGO developed a web-based educational program for the general public entitled “Irritable Bowel Syndrome (IBS): What is it, what causes it and can I do anything about it?”

Led by Professors Eamonn Quigley (USA), Richard Hunt (UK), Pali Hungin (UK), and Anton Emmanuel (UK), this webcast targets those common symptoms most associated with IBS and focuses, in particular, on an approach to educate the general public on issues related to this condition. Segment 1 focuses on “What is IBS” and “How to communicate symptoms to help the doctor make the right diagnosis.” In Segment 2 you will learn about “Progress in IBS” and “Could it be something else?” Segment 3 will look at “What can I do to deal with my symptoms?” and “How about diet and dietary supplements?”, and finally in Segment 4 “Managing IBS” and “Living with IBS” is discussed.
