Microbial Ecology in Health and Disease

Microbial Ecology in Health and Disease  is the official journal of the  Society of Microbial Ecology in Health and Disease (SOMED)  and is also recognized by the  Oral Microbiology and Immunology Group (OMIG)  of the  British Society for Dental Research (BSDR) .  The aim of this international journal is to draw together research on different human microbial eco-systems, and to increase our understanding of their role in health and disease. This research has received new impetus in recent years as it has become clearer what part is played by the normal, stable, microbial flora in preventing infection, especially opportunist infection, and related to this, the potentially deleterious effects of the use of antibiotics.  The journal will consider manuscripts primarily on the human microbial flora, but also that of animals, and its development and interactions. Topics covered include: the microbial populations of the mouth and skin, and in the respiratory, gastro-intestinal and genito-urinary tracts, the effect of antibiotics or diet on the commensal flora or its development, alterations in the host environment (e.g. the effect of foreign bodies or change in organs and tissues), the role of immunological and other mechanisms that help maintain a stable flora, the clinical application of commensal flora in treatment and prevention of disease. Manuscripts based on gnotobiotic research are particularly welcome.  The material published includes Original Papers, Short Communications, Review Articles, Case Reports, and Letters to the Editor.
