Project description

Given the emerging evidence for the involvement of the gut microbiome in the onset of food allergy
and its resolution, this project will rely on our metabolomics platform and microbial analysis of CMA patients' biofluids, for identifying prognostic biomarkers. Specific bacterial groups involved in the biomarker formation, will be manipulated or administered to mice to aid in biomarker qualification.
