ARUK 2022 | How does the gut microbiota affect neuroinflammation in Alzheimer’s disease?

Edina Silajdzic, PhD, King’s College London, London, UK, discusses the role of neuroinflammation in Alzheimer’s disease and how the gut microbiome could be involved. Changes in short chain fatty acid levels can lead to changes in microglia and increases in inflammatory cytokines in the blood. More research is needed as to whether these links between the gut microbiota and the brain are correlative or causative. This interview took place at the Alzheimer’s Research UK Conference 2022 in Brighton, UK.
