  • epidemiological, pathophysiological and clinical aspects of functional esophago-gastro-intestinal disorders
  • new technologies for the assessment of esophago-gastro-intestinal motility and perception
  • shortcomings and promises of current and future therapies.

The NeuroGASTRO Meeting took place in Cork, Ireland, August 24–26, 2017.

Neurogastroenterology and Motility journal[edit]

Neurogastroenterology and Motility is a bimonthly peer-reviewed medical journal covering neurogastroenterology and gastrointestinal motility. It is the official journal of the ESNM and the American Neurogastroenterology and Motility Society (ANMS).[18]

It edits clinical observations, abstracts of congresses and lectures, meeting reports and book and article reviews.[32] The journal publishes papers from scientists worldwide working in the field of gastrointestinal motility, clinical research and treatments.[33]

Neurogastroenterology and Motility is published by Wiley-Blackwell.[34]

Scientists can submit their articles to the journal. It accepts or refuses the paper after an editorial and peer review process.[35]

According to the publisher, this process is independent of the societies affiliated with the journal. Neither the ESNM, the ANMS, the FBG nor Wiley-Blackwell have any editorial decision-making power.[36]

In 2016, the editors-in-chief are Drs. Gianrico Farrugia, Magnus Simren and Gary Mawe.[36]

The Gut Microbiota and Health Section[edit]

In 2011, the ESNM launched the Gut Microbiota & Health Section.[37]

It was set up to raise awareness and understanding of the links between gut microbiota and human health, to expand knowledge and to increase interest in the subject of gut flora.[38]

Board of Directors[edit]

In 2012, the president of the Gut Microbiota & Health Section of the ESNM was Professor Fernando Azpiroz.[39]

In 2016, the Gut Microbiota & Health Section's board is composed of: Fernando Azpiroz, chairman (Spain), Qasim Aziz (United Kingdom), Joël Doré (France), Paul Enck (Germany), Francesco Guarner (Spain), Magnus Simrén (Sweden),[40] Giovanni Barbara (Italy), S. Murch (United Kingdom), H. Sokol (France), M. Trauner (Austria).

The Gut Microbiota & Health Section is open to any professional involved in the field of gut microbiota.[41]

Activities[edit]

The section seeks to: provide a forum on new discoveries in gut microbiota and health, to stimulate and encourage research, to share news and information on topics related to gut microbiota, to provide science and educational activities to widely disseminate knowledge in this field.

Gut Microbiota For Health website[edit]

The Gut Microbiota & Health Section has launched a website on gut microbiota in 2012.[39][42] Gut Microbiota for Health is an online platform dedicated to experts and to the public. One section, named "Gut Microbiota Research and Practice" is aimed at professionals (researchers, MDs, PhDs...), the other "Gut Microbiota News Watch" is dedicated to a wider audience.

Gut Microbiota Research and Practice[edit]

The Gut Microbiota Research and Practice section is aimed at researchers, scientists and health care professionals. It contains papers and reviews, abstracts of congresses and events, and discussions of recent findings on the human digestive system, the immune system, metabolic conditions and gut-brain axis...[43] Thanks to an Internet forum, this section enables scientists from around the world to debate and discuss on gut microbiota issues.[44] Researchers are also allowed to send and submit their scientific articles.

This section gathers 900 online members, which include scientists, clinicians, journalists, institutional representatives... It also brings together 1800 Twitter followers, 1800 LinkedIn members, and 2500 newsletter subscribers with a common interest in gut microbiota.[45]

Gut Microbiota News Watch[edit]

The other section of the Gut Microbiota For Health website is dedicated to a wider audience. It is called "Gut Microbiota News Watch" and gathers the most recent information on gut microbiota. The aim is to spread information to the mass media and the public.

Gut Microbiota News Watch is dedicated to promoting and spreading information on gut microbiota to the mass media and the public.[46] It offers easy-to understand information on gut microbiota, its key role in the human body, its importance for health and its role in the vital functions.[39]

This website is also connected to social media such as Facebook and Twitter, in order to create a gut microbiota-aware community.[46]

Gut Microbiota for Health World Summit[edit]

The ESNM's Gut Microbiota & Health Section organizes the annual Gut Microbiota for Health World Summit. The aim is to gather together leading international gut microbiota experts and to keep them up to date through lectures and workshops on the latest advances in gut microbiota research.[47]

It is organized by the Gut Microbiota & Health Section and the American Gastroenterological Association (AGA) with the support of the Danone group.[48]

The first summit was held in Evian-les-Bains, France, in 2012. More than 200 specialists from 30 different countries participated in this event.[49]

The 2nd Gut Microbiota for Health World Summit was held in Madrid, Spain, a year later.[48]

The 3rd Gut Microbiota for Health World Summit took place in Miami, United States, in 2014.[50] Among the topics covered: In what way does gut microbiota influence functional bowel disorders? How is gut microbiota involved in the development of the metabolic syndrome? Can diet and probiotics have a positive effect on mental health?.[51]

The 4th summit was held in Barcelona, Spain. Since 2015, the European Crohn's and Colitis Organization and the European Society for Pediatric Gastroenterology Hepatology and Nutrition joined the summit as co-partners.[52]

The 5th Gut Microbiota for Health World Summit took place in Miami, Florida, in 2016. During this event, scientists discussed topics ranging from diet switch impact on gut microbiota, to pre and probiotics, including fecal microbiota transplantations...[52]

Other activities[edit]

The Gut Microbiota & Health Section publishes scientific papers on gut flora. Its first paper was published in the Neurogastroenterology and Motility journal in 2013. Its theme was: "Gut microbiota and gastrointestinal health: current concepts and future directions".[48]
