|Abstract:||The early neonatal period represents the most important moment for the microbiota-induced maturation of the host, being a key determinant factor for later health. The neonatal gut colonization, which begins with facultative anaerobes and continues with anaerobic genera, is affected by several factors. Different studies have demonstrated the involvement of the gut microbiota on weight-gain and obesity. More recently, different animal studies have suggested a relationship between the microbiota and childhood undernutrition and growth. Thus, the modulation of the gut microbiota could be a potential therapeutic target for promoting growth and preventing growth impairment. However, little is known about the potential relationship among microbiota establishment, growth and development in preterm infants. The aim of the present study was to evaluate such potential relationship between early microbiota development in the preterm infant and weight gain.|
