Microbiome Dysbiosis: An Emerging Consideration in the Pathophysiology of Inborn Errors of Metabolism

Event date: 4/28/2021

In this session, recorded for the 2021 Virtual GMDI conference, researcher Trevor Kirby explains gut microbiome dysbiosis and the current understanding of its presence in inborn errors of metabolism (IEMs). Mr. Kirby discusses the gut-brain axis, how dysbiosis might impact disease presentation in IEMs, and the potential role for pre-, pro-, and synbiotics in the therapeutic approach.

Learning Objectives:

  • Understand dysbiosis and evaluate current research on dysbiosis in IEMs.
  • Define the gut-brain axis and identify how dysbiosis impacts disease presentation.
  • Outline the role pre-, pro-, and synbiotics might play in the therapeutic approach.
