Microbial Biomarkers to Predict Respiratory Infection

Microbiota 2022 Congress speaker Claire Woodal

Dr. Claire Woodall, a Daphne Jackson Fellow at the University of Bristol, will be presenting her research at the 9th ISM Annual Meeting to discuss “Microbial Biomarkers to Predict Respiratory Infection”.

Respiratory tract infections are the most common infections seen in primary care, and the single greatest contributor to the overall burden of infections worldwide. Community-acquired viral respiratory infection includes influenza-like illness and more recently, COVID-19 disease. Even in otherwise healthy adults, respiratory infections are common and they may experience multiple infections per year.

Microbial biomarker studies are proposed as an emerging tool to identify healthy adults most susceptible to respiratory infection. If this identification were possible, then alongside clinical primary care standard practice protective measures can be implemented early. This talk discusses the current evidence for microbial biomarkers predicting susceptibility to respiratory infection and asks the question: is the science there yet?
