BMC Pharmacology and Toxicology is calling for submissions to our Collection on the drugs and gut microbiome interactions.
In the past decade, our understanding of the human gut microbiome's role in mediating human health has emerged rapidly. From autoimmune disorders to psychiatric disorders, recent studies have shown the associations between the presence and abundance of various gut bacteria with health conditions. The gut microbiome's role as a crucial mediator of drug metabolism is increasingly recognised, with the interactions between drugs and the gut microbiome being a complex bidirectional system.
