While research has indicated this connection, the precise biological mechanisms underlying ASD remain unclear. Studies exploring the role of the gut-brain axis, a system that mediates the response of the gut microbiome to various factors, such as diet and inflammation, are still in their infancy.What scientists do know is that these processes are crucial for healthy development, and disruptions can lead to a range of health problems, including neurodevelopmental and psychiatric disorders.
Our research on the gut-brain axis sheds light on the development of ASD and offers a preview of potential future microbial-based therapies aimed at addressing behavioral challenges and gastrointestinal symptoms associated with ASD.In this webinar, you will:Have a question for our expert?
