Abstract

The prevalence of Coronary Artery Disease (CAD) have increased terribly worldwide over the last decades.The human intestine harbors a complex microbial community which is strongly linked to cardiovascular risk factors. In recent years, high throughput omics technology have revealed the composition of CAD featured microbiota. But the relationship between microbiota and CAD host is not clear and their causality is confused. TMAO(trimethylamine N-oxide), a microbiota-mediated metabolite, is considered as a new risk factor for CAD. Probiotics are considered potentially useful in the prevention of CAD because of their purported ability to modulate microbiota and lower cholesterol level. Furthermore, microbiota-mediated body chloride ion influx by probiotics and other plant-origin substances is probably a novel perspective for CAD pathogensis.
