Dr Jonathan Peled - Memorial Sloan Kettering Cancer Centre, New York, USA

Dr Jonathan Peled speaks to ecancer at ASH 2018 about the relationship between complications from haematopoietic cell transplantation and the composition of microbes residing in the gut. 

He explains that low diversity of gut flora prior to bone marrow transplantation was associated with worse outcomes.

Dr Peled suggests that there not only appears to be association but also causality between gut microbiota and transplantation outcomes, that could be taken advantage of using prebiotic, probiotic or postbiotic approaches prior to transplantation.
