The webinar explores the components of the human intestinal virome that shape our immune system in the context of health and IBD. Familiar to many, .. Read more the term microbiome represents the trillions of microorganisms we harbor inside our bodies. In the past 20 years, we’ve learned much about our resident bacteria and its role in our overall health, but relatively little is known about the viruses in this environment. New technologies have allowed us to not only identify that they exist, but that native viruses too can affect the nature and progression of disease. We know the gut “virome” is significantly altered in patients with IBD, but does a change in viral composition influence gut inflammation? Are all viruses bad, or can they offer protection, as they do in mice?. Join our webinar as we ponder these questions and explore the components of the human intestinal virome that shape our immune system in the context of health and IBD.
