This book aims to introduce the latest research in gut microbiota by systematically summarizing how it modulates the pathogenesis
of organ injury including alimentary tract injury, liver injury, lung injury, brain injury, renal injury, heart and vascular
injury, endocrine disorders, immune responses and multiple organ dysfunction syndrome (MODS) during sepsis. Gut microbiota
which is recognized as a new "organ" in the body has been demonstrated to be able to regulate the homeostasis of many organs.
The key role played by gut microbiota is the hotspot in biomedical research nowadays. This book provides a state-of-the-art
report on recent discoveries regarding the novel insight into the mechanisms of human diseases progression. It will also offer
the overall picture of the pathophysiologic roles of gut microbiota. This book is helpful for graduate students and professional
researchers to get the knowledge of frontiers in both gut microbiota and organ injury.
