The application of molecular methods to gastro-intestinal diseases is giving insight into the way in which the resident intestinal microbiota interacts with the mucosal immune system. Using traditional culture techniques, the importance of mucosally-associated bacterial biofilms in maintaining mucosal integrity has been demonstrated in ways previously impossible. Changes in the balance of organisms at initiation of and during disease provide a rationale for interventions with functional foods which facilitate re-establishment of the homeostasis of healthy gut.
