Abstract/OtherAbstract:
The main protagonist of the Emmy award-winning television series 'Breaking Bad', chemistry teacher Walter White, is famously noted for his ambiguous nature as both 'hero' and 'anti-hero'. In a similar vein, the ambiguous influence of microbiota on liver disease has been an active area of discussion in hepatology circles. Various authors have described the gut microbiota as 'the forgotten organ'[1] and 'the hottest subject in medicine'[2]. In parallel, the pathobiology of portal hypertension, and the role of gut microbes and innate immune signalling in exacerbating intrahepatic resistance, has also been the subject of a renaissance of interest[3]. In this issue of Liver International, Rincon and colleagues bring these threads together by exploring the effects of modulating gut flora on portal hypertension in the context of decompensated cirrhosis.
