About this Research Topic
In this Research Topic, we encourage research focusing on the relationship between gut microbiota and innate immune response to pathogens, aiming to explore the roles of gut microbiota and the metabolites in infectious diseases in terms of innate immune and provide the related prevention, diagnosis and treatment strategies. Both Original Research and Review articles are welcome here, including, but not limited to, the following research contents:
1. The effect of gut microbiota and the metabolites on host innate immune response to infection
2. Mechanisms of gut microbiota affecting host innate immune in the development of infectious diseases
3. Prevention and diagnosis of infectious diseases based on the interplay between gut microbiota and innate immune
4. Probiotics, synbiotics, herbal medicines and other therapies for infectious diseases based on the interplay between gut microbiota and innate immune
Keywords: infectious diseases, innate immune, signaling pathway, gut 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.
