Exploring the role of gut dysbiosis in neuroinflammation and hypertension

Dave Durgan Microbiota 2018 updProf. David Durgan from  Baylor College of Medicine, USA will give a strategic presentation during the 6th World Congress on Targeting Microbiota 2018 about "Exploring the role of gut dysbiosis in neuroinflammation and hypertension" during the congress.

According to Prof. Durgan: "Hypertension is one of the most prevalent risk factors for the development of cardiovascular disease. We have demonstrated that multiple models of hypertension exhibit gut dysbiosis, and that dysbiosis plays a causal role in the development of hypertension. We have found that this involves neuroinflammation, and are currently examining a potential microbiota-gut-brain axis involved in blood pressure regulation. Our studies demonstrate that treatments to prevent or reverse gut dysbiosis may be valuable in the treatment of hypertension."
