4th Probiotics Congress: Asia


Dietary supplements manufactured by incorporating various strains of probiotics are well established and are widely recognised as providing "dietary support". However, the diversity of the Asia-Pacific region – geographically, culturally and economically – has produced variations in the gut microbiome, an important factor if functional probiotics are going to an effective tool to managing food allergies and potentially reverse certain disorders and diseases.

Against this backdrop, I am delighted to announce that the 4th Probiotics Congress Asia is co-hosted with the National Central University and National Chiao Tung University (GLORIA) of Taiwan The congress takes place on the 6th and 7th of March 2019 in Taiwan. It is co-located with the 5th Microbiome R&D and Business Collaboration Congress: Asia.

The interface between pre & probiotics and the microbiome has become an increasingly interesting area of research. Early indications suggest that probiotics offer a potentially promising approach for preventing microbial dysbiosis. An interesting example of this is research from the US that has explored the potential of probiotics to restore the natural infant microbiome with immediate impacts such as a significant reduction of the carriage of antibiotic resistance and virulence genes, a lowering of colonic pH, and a major reduction of gut pathogens.

By hosting these two events at the same time we have provided you with a unique opportunity to be at a meeting where the cross-over between microbiome and probiotics research is a reality.

With a strong focus on Asia, including an update from the Asian gut microbiome project, this unique meeting is unmissable. It brings together leading global and regional researchers and key industry players working towards bringing microbiome discoveries to the market.
