Microbiota diseases

The Human Microbiology Institute  is delighted to introduce novel group of human diseases:“Microbiota Diseases”. The term “microbiota diseases” reflects the primary and crucial role of microbiota-related disorders in certain host organism pathologies.


HMI research indicates that microbiota diseases lead to pathologies in the macroorganism, including increased intestinal permeability and leaky gut-associated pathologies, including:

  • Inflammatory bowel disease
  • Crohn’s disease
  • Alzheimer’s disease
  • Amyotrophic lateral diseases
  • Parkinson’s disease
  • Schizophrenia
  • Autism
  • Type 1 diabetes
  • Cancers
  • Cardiovascular disorders
  • Rheumatoid arthiritis
  • Liver and kidney failure



We try to make our data available to the whole scientific community. The HMI welcomes collaborative studies to unravel the pathogenesis of human diseases associated with the microbiota. However, we ask that you respect the rights of first publication and cite our work as follows:

Bacteriophage infections of microbiota can lead to leaky gut in an experimental rodent model.
