The microbiome of human gastrointestinal tract is extremely extensive ecosystem, which composition and interactions of the host organism may play a crucial role in maintaining homeostasis, as well as affect the development of many diseases. Recently, particularly interesting is the impact of the microbiome in the development of diseases classified as inflammatory bowel disease. Current knowledge of the impact of microorganisms colonizing the gastrointestinal tract on the life processes of the body still remains insufficient. Conduct research aimed at understanding these interactions will help to clarify the etiology of diseases of the IBD group, to enable their early diagnosis, as well as set new therapeutic path.

Key words: microbiome, inflammatory bowel disease, Crohn’s disease, ulcerative colitis
