ASM GM 2012 - Antibiotic Exposure, The Microbiome and Obesity

 

A number of variables can cause signficant changes in the human microbiome early in life including birth method and antibiotic exposure.  Understanding these shifts is important because new research suggests that shifts in the microbiome of infants could make them more prone to gain weight as adults.  Participants will discuss variables involved in the development of the infant microbiome and how it  affects adult metabolism and body composition in mouse models.
