Research Description

Anita Kozyrskyj is Principal Investigator of SyMBIOTA (Synergy in Microbiota), one of 7 CIHR funded Canadian human microbiome team grants, which is studying the impact of maternal and infant antibiotic use, birth mode and breastfeeding on the composition of the intestinal microbiota in 3,500 infants enrolled in the Canadian Healthy Infant Longitudinal Development (CHILD, PI: Malcolm Sears) cohort at 4 sites across Canada. Co-lead by James Scott, the team will determine whether changes in infant gut microbiota are associated with the development of overweight, allergy and asthma in children. Study objectives will be achieved through the linkage of detailed data on antibiotic use from prescription databases and birth records to microbiota profiles. Preliminary data on 24 infants was published in February 2013 (http://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/pubmed/23401405). The team are now evaluating microbiota profiles of over 200 infants at the Winnipeg, Vancouver and Edmonton CHILD sites.

Synergy in Microbiota Research (SyMBIOTA). This emerging team grant was 1 of 7 awarded by the CIHR Microbiome Initiative from 21 applications submitted. Our team will access fecal samples from the Canadian Healthy Infant Longitudinal Development (CHILD) cohort to investigate the impact of early life exposures such as antibiotic use, on infant intestinal microbiota and the development of allergic disease in childhood. Microbiota composition will be measured by high throughput signature gene sequencing. Details on antibiotic use will be obtained from provincial prescription databases. SyMBIOTA is composed of microbiologists, epidemiologists, molecular biologists, immunologists, pediatric allergists and ethicists across 5 universities. Canadian Institutes of Health Research
