Hear from Prof Harry Sokol why gut microbiota are so important for human diseases and their treatments

The 14th EACPT Congress was held from 29th June to 2nd July in 2019 in Stockholm as a partnership between the EACPT and the Swedish Society for Pharmacology, Clinical Pharmacology and Therapeutics.

The term gut microbiota describes the population of microbes living in our intestines. Gut microbiota are being increasingly recognised as important contributors to a wide range of human diseases, from disorders of the gut to cancers and neurological disease.
Gut microbiota also contribute to drug response and to risk of adverse drug effects. Gut microbiota also provide a source of potential treatments.

In this short video you can hear keynote EACPT Congress speaker Professor Harry Sokol from Paris discuss the importance for clinical pharmacologists, other health professionals and patients of understanding emerging key roles for gut microbiota in serious diseases and their treatments.
