Poster summary

Microbiome structure influences the innate and adaptive immune response that could cause dysbiosis often linked to infectious diseases, rheumatoid arthritis, cancer, obesity, and cardiovascular diseases. Gut and lung microflora delivers immunomodulatory functions, but it’ll undertake the path to get substituted by pathogens leading to a poor prognosis of COVID-19. Mucosal cell lining enhances the relocation of SARSCoV-2 due to increased ACE-2 receptors, resulting in excessive transcription of proinflammatory cytokines via P38 MAPK and AP-1 pathway mainly through exhaustive macrophages and monocytes. Which eventually reduces the production of TLRs, NODs-NLRs, and SCFAs depleting the resident microflora to affect overall homeostasis. Injured mucosal lining enhances the systemic translocation of bacteria (pathogens and commensals), cell metabolites, cytokines, chemokines, and other toxins to other organs causing multiorgan injuries.
