Description

Webinar: The Interplay between the Gut Microbiome, Inflammation, Reproductive Hormones, and Mood Disorders

Location: Online Via PsychU.org

Description: Accumulating evidence suggests that changes in inflammation, including the gut microbiome, may contribute to the pathophysiology of mood disorders.  Furthermore, inflammation may be involved in the sex differences we see in many diseases of the “modern” world.  In this webinar, Mary Kimmel, MD and David J. Scheiderer, MD, MBA, DFAPA will review how changes in the gut microbiome can lead to changes in inflammation, the bi-directional relationship between inflammation and estrogen, as well as the bi-directional relationship between estrogen and the gut microbiome. There may be interplay among all these separate entities and this interplay may greatly impact the outcomes of the patients.

Speakers are paid consultants for Otsuka Pharmaceutical Development & Commercialization, Inc.
