How are the gut microbiome and food allergies related?
In October 2020, the second phase of the Biomarkers in Food Allergy Diagnosis (APSIS) clinical trial was officially initiated under the coordination of the LIH Department of Infection and Immunity (DII) and in collaboration with the Centre Hospitalier du Luxembourg (CHL), the Luxembourg Centre for Systems Biomedicine (LCSB) of the University of Luxembourg and the Integrated Biobank of Luxembourg (IBBL). This translational study aims to explore the correlation between the clinical and immunological characteristics of allergic patients with the functional features of the gut microbiome, ultimately supporting the development of novel translational strategies for the prevention of food allergies. Dr Annette Kuehn, Principal Investigator of the study and Group Leader of the Molecular and Translational Allergology unit of the LIH Department of Infection and Immunity (DII), explains the key aspects of the project.
