Probiotics in The Prevention and Management of Human Diseases

A Scientific Perspective

"Overall, the book provides a comprehensive review of the role of probiotics in human disease. Additionally, it moves the conversation toward their use in prevention and cure. There are very limited existing textbooks like this on the market, aside from a recently published title, Probiotics for Human Nutrition in Health and Disease, de Souza et al. (Elsevier, 2022), making comparison difficult. I noted grammatical errors and inconsistencies across sections, likely because a different group of researchers authored each chapter. If readers are able to overlook these details, this book proves itself a useful guide to improve the understanding of the present and possible future applications of probiotics.

Probiotics in The Prevention and Management of Human Diseases: A Scientific Perspective addresses the use of probiotics and their mechanistic aspects in diverse human diseases. In particular, the mechanistic aspects of how these probiotics are involved in mitigating disease symptoms (novel approaches and immune-mechanisms induced by Probiotics), clinical trials of certain probiotics, and animal model studies will be presented through this book. In addition, the book covers the role of probiotics in prevention and management aspects of crucial human diseases, including multidrug resistant infections, hospital acquired infections, allergic conditions, autoimmune diseases, metabolic disorders, gastrointestinal diseases, neurological disorders, and cancers.

Finally, the book addresses the use of probiotics as vaccine adjuvants and as a solution for nutritional health problems and describes the challenges of using probiotics in management of human disease conditions as well as their biosafety concerns. Intended for nutrition researchers, microbiologists, physiologists, and researchers in related disciplines as well as students studying these topics require a resource that addresses the specific role of probiotics in the prevention and management of human disease.
