Prebiotic compounds are believed to improve human health by selectively stimulating the growth and activity of health-promoting species belonging to the genera Bifidobacteria and Lactobacilli. These species have a beneficial effect on the colon environment and can be used as a marker for the stability in the human colon microbiota.
The aim of my PhD project is to validate new synthesized carbohydrates in preparation for defining them as prebiotics and examining if they have a stimulating effect on the health-promoting species in the colon.
Furthermore, I study the effect of the potential prebiotics on the colon environment in patients with Ulcerative Colitis and examine whether these components can play a roll in the treatment of patients suffering from this disease.
