Dear colleagues and friends:

It is my great pleasure to notify you of the first webinar from the North America Chinese Society for Nutrition (NACSN) in 2020.

This is an excellent opportunity for NACSN members and friends to get a taste of one part of the nutritional sciences. Below, you will find detailed information about this webinar, speaker information, and abstract.

Speaker information: Currently, Dr. Lixin Zhu is an associate professor in the Sixth Affiliated Hospital at Sun Yat-sen University. He obtained his Ph.D. degree from Shanghai Institute of Biochemistry and Cell Biology, Chinese Academy of Sciences. He did his postdoctoral research at UC Berkeley before his tenure-track assistant professor position at SUNY Buffalo, where he conducted several microbiome studies in NAFLD. He also conducted microbiome studies in other gastrointestinal diseases such as constipation, inflammatory bowel disease (IBD) and irritable bowel syndrome with diarrhea (IBS-D).

Abstract: NAFLD is the hepatic manifestation of metabolic syndrome. Besides excess caloric intake and sedentary lifestyle, microbiome-derived insults are important contributing factors for the pathogenesis of this obesity-associated liver disease, largely due to the fact that the portal vein brought together the gut microbiota and the liver. The first study examining the gut microbiome of the NAFLD revealed a significant difference between NAFLD patients and healthy controls at every taxonomic unit, including a highly elevated representation of Enterobacteriaceae NAFLD microbiome, a fact in line with increased blood alcohol level in NAFLD. In addition to alcohol, gut bacterial products, bile acids and lipopolysaccharide have shown to contribute to the initiation or development of NAFLD. Future studies may focus on trimethylamine oxide and phenylacetic acid, which are emerging bacterial products that may contribute to the pathogenesis of NAFLD.
