Current research shows that the intestinal microbial composition has an important influence in graft-versus-host disease (GvHD). In line with this, recent findings from our lab also indicate that treatment with particular antibiotics after bone marrow transplantation may further exacerbate this disease. My research focuses on different therapeutic strategies to prevent dysbiosis and recover the gut microbiota order to reduce GvHD after transplant.
