dc.description.abstractThe incidence of Type 1 diabetes is increasing world-wide. The reasons for this remain unknown. One of the hypotheses is that decreased exposure to microbial infections in early life might predispose to Type 1 diabetes through its effects on the immune system. The intestinal epithelium is exposed to a large number of diverse microorganisms and to a variety of food antigens. An alteration in the gut microbiota during critical stages in the development of the immune system may therefore have profound and long-lasting immunomodulatory effects.en_GB
