Virulence factors are essential to enable pathogens growth in the gut in the presence of commensal microbes.
The holobiont, explained
The holobiont is the entity comprised of the host and all of its symbiotic microbes. These microbes may be transmitted vertically or horizontally, may be acquired from the environment, and can change.
Improving collaboration between humans, animals, and the microbiome
Awareness of the impact of the microbiome on human health has increased in recent years and there is a need for re-evaluating what makes up a person and the way we treat and handle infections. In Bactolife™, we work towards equilibrium rather than eradication of components of the holobiont.
