Advances in biological techniques have potentiated great progresses in understanding the interaction between human beings and the ∼10 to 100 trillion microbes living in their gastrointestinal tract: gut microbiota (GM). In this review, we describe recent emerging data on the role of GM in hematopoietic stem cell transplantation, with a focus on immunomodulatory properties in the immune system recovery and the impact in the development of the main complications, as GvHD and infections.

Abstract

Advances in biological techniques have potentiated great progresses in understanding the interaction between human beings and the ∼10 to 100 trillion microbes living in their gastrointestinal tract: gut microbiota (GM). In this review, we describe recent emerging data on the role of GM in hematopoietic stem cell transplantation, with a focus on immunomodulatory properties in the immune system recovery and the impact in the development of the main complications, as GvHD and infections.
