Microbiome Foundation

The project on the role of the microbiota in digestive disorders associated with obesity and mental anorexia, supported by the Microbiome Foundation.

The Roquette Foundation for Health shares the Microbiome Foundation's conviction that the intestinal microbiota, a complex and poorly understood organ, plays a key role in the development of diseases.  Therefore, research into the microbiota is opening up new avenues of therapy for diseases for which no solutions have yet to be found.

The project on “Digestive disorders in obesity and mental anorexia: role of the microbiota",undertaken by a team of researchers from Rouen and Paris, aims to characterize the role of the intestinal flora in the onset and maintenance of functional digestive disorders, which are frequently observed in subjects with anorexia or obesity.  

Based on a series of animal experiments, the study is exploring the composition of the microbiota as well as intestinal responses. It is also assessing specific nutritional interventions targeting the microbiota to improve digestive and eating disorders. The research project's end goal is thus to identify potential new nutritional treatments leading to improvements in the therapeutic care of patients.
