Targeting Probiotic Microbiota Functions: Can Signaling Pathways Be Causally Related to Gut-Brain Interactions in PTSD?

Community Member kudos icon + Community member

Studies suggest trauma is associated with alterations of the gut microbiota and dysbiosis early in life could promote the development of PTSD later in life when subjects are re-exposed to traumatic events. This particularly applies to PTSD patients characterized by long-lasting low cortisol levels. This would consider the gut microbiota as a new biological factor mediating vulnerability versus resilience to stress and may suggest new targets in the treatment of PTSD.
