Several teams of MetaCardis (Inserm, ICAN, INRA) just published an article on "Major microbiota dysbiosis in severe obesity: fate after bariatric surgery" in the GUT journal on their research results from MetaCardis.

The coordinator of MetaCardis, Prof Karine Clement, has been interviewed by EASO on the current progress of MetaCardis.

The final version of the Dr. Maria Carlota Dao's and Prof Karine Clement's article "Gut microbiota and obesity: Concepts relevant to clinical care" is now available online, containing full bibliographic details.

The article is accessible free of charge until April 05, 2018  ScienceDirect by clicking on the link below: 


  • There is a complex relationship between gut microbiota and obesity.
  • A causal relationship has been shown in rodents but not in humans.
  • Gut microbiota composition, function and metabolite output should be considered.
  • Different approaches to treat metabolic disease lead to changes in gut microbiota.
  • Modulation of the gut microbiota has potential in clinical care.

 Assessing diet in the MetaCardis study

Small changes in dietary habits can have large consequences on your gut microbiome – the large collection of different bacteria existing in the alimentary tract. We now know that our gut microbiome can have a huge impact on our general health and wellbeing, including raising or lowering risks to certain diseases, as well as influencing their severity. As such, greater efforts are being focused on understanding the role of the gut microbiota in both health and disease. One such multicenter study is MetaCardis, funded by the European Union’s Seventh Framework Programme...
