About this Research Topic
This Research Topic aims to explore from different perspectives the main components of the gut microbiota, the molecular mechanisms by which the microbiota affect the progression of inflammatory and autoimmune diseases, and the application of relevant microbial technologies or products in the diagnosis or treatment of diseases, to provide new strategies for the treatment of inflammatory and autoimmune diseases.
We welcome manuscripts focusing on, but are not limited to, the following subtopics,
• Mechanisms regulating the interaction between the microbiota and the immune system
• The role of microbiota-immune system interactions in inflammatory and autoimmune diseases
• Integration of multi-omics technologies to elucidate the cross-regulation of the gut microbiota and the immune system
• Microbiota-based diagnosis and drug development for inflammatory and autoimmune diseases
Keywords: inflammation, autoimmune diseases, immunology, metabolism, microbiota
Important Note: All contributions to this Research Topic must be within the scope of the section and journal to which they are submitted, as defined in their mission statements. Frontiers reserves the right to guide an out-of-scope manuscript to a more suitable section or journal at any stage of peer review.
