Welcome to the new academic journal OBM Hepatology and Gastroenterology. Recent progress in understanding liver, biliary, pancreatic and gastro-intestinal diseases and their treatments has been observed in the world. OBM Hepatology and Gastroenterology publishes interesting and informative reviews, original articles, and invaluable case reports in this area. We also publish basic research as well as clinical research.

Hepatitis A virus (HAV), HBV, HCV, HDV, and HEV are still a serious issue worldwide. Treatments on these viruses have recently improved. However, liver fibrosis, cirrhosis and hepatocellular carcinoma are still critical conditions. We focus on all of these liver diseases. We also focus on broad-spectrum of gastro-intestinal diseases in this journal.

About this Topic

Gut health refers to equilibrium between wide ranges of microorganisms that are resident in the gastrointestinal tract, collectively known as gut microbiota, and their genome is referred to as gut microbiome. The healthy gut microbiome contributes to a strong immune system and metabolic health. Probiotics, prebiotics and synbiotics (pre + probiotics) are considered as natural and safe manipulators of gut microbiome Probiotics are live microorganism, when supplemented in adequate amounts, confer a wide range health benefits. Prebiotics are fibers in the food, which act as substrates to probiotics. Synbiotics are combinations of both probiotics and prebiotics, which are gaining momentum in improving gut health. This special issue is focused on providing a common platform for exchange of updated information on wide range of synbiotics combinations and their efficacies. This issue opens to receive reviews and research paper from researcher and clinicians.
