Gut Microbiota and Cancer: From Pathogenesis to Therapy
Cancer is a multifactorial pathology and it represents the second leading cause of death worldwide. Conversely, several microbiota subpopulations may expand during pathological dysbiosis and therefore produce high levels of toxins capable, in turn, to trigger both inflammation and tumorigenesis. Importantly, gut microbiota can interact with the host either modulating directly the gut epithelium or the immune system. Numerous gut populating bacteria, called probiotics, have been identified as protective against the genesis of tumors. Given their capability of preserving gut homeostasis, probiotics are currently tested to help to fight dysbiosis in cancer patients subjected to chemotherapy and radiotherapy. Most recently, three independent studies show that specific gut resident species may potentiate the positive outcome of anti-cancer immunotherapy.

These hallmark capabilities have given us remarkable insight into the multistep changes that occur within the tissue microenvironment during cancer development. However, it has become well established that host-associated microbial communities, termed microbiota, also play integral roles in modulating various aspects of host physiology. This includes host processes such as cellular metabolism and immune function that become highly dysregulated during carcinogenesis.
Gut microbiota, chemotherapy and the host: the influence of the gut microbiota on cancer treatment
There are many risk factors associated with breast cancer BC such as the familial history of BC, using hormone replacement therapy, obesity, personal habits, and other clinical factors; however, not all BC cases are attributed to these risk factors. Recent researches show a correlation between patient microbiome and BC suggested as a new risk factor. The present review article aimed at evaluating the role of the microbiome as a risk factor in the occurrence of BC, investigating the proposed mechanisms of interaction between the microbiome and human genes involved in BC, and assessing the impact of the altered composition of breast, gut, and milk microbiome in the physiological status of normal breast as well as cancerous or non-cancerous breast lesions. The study also evaluated the growing evidence that these altered populations may hinder chemotherapeutic treatment. The role of microbiome in the development and maintenance of inflammation, estrogen metabolism, and epigenetic alterations was properly investigated. Finally, clinical and therapeutic applications of the microbiome- e.

The microbiome and lung cancer
The analysis of microbiota composition has become routine in our time, mostly due to the explosion and availability of new technologies [metagenomic sequencing technologies that incorporate next-generation DNA sequencing methods with the computational approach of targeted 16S rRNA hypervariable regions or whole-genome shotgun sequence reads], that allow for the identification and classification of a great variety of microbial species 1 , 2. The genome of the microbiota is fold more extensive than the human genome 3. The distribution of microbial cells surpasses the number of all human cells, including somatic and germ cells throughout the human body
We use an ecological lens to understand how microbes and cancer cells coevolve inside the ecosystems of our bodies. We describe how microbe-cancer cell interactions contribute to cancer progression, including cooperation between microbes and cancer cells. Microbiota influence many aspects of our health including our cancer risk. Since both microbes and cancer cells rely on incoming resources for their survival and replication, excess energy and nutrient input from the host can play a role in cancer initiation and progression.
In the last decade, the role of microbiota-host interactions in driving human cancer plasticity and malignant progression has been well documented. Germ-free preclinical models provided an invaluable tool to demonstrate that the human microbiota can confer susceptibility to various types of cancer and can also modulate the host response to therapeutic treatments. Of interest, besides the detrimental effects of dysbiosis on cancer etiopathogenesis, specific microorganisms have been shown to exert protective activities against cancer growth.
Но, сэр… - заикаясь выдавила. - Я… я протестую. Я думаю… - Вы протестуете? - переспросил директор и поставил на стол чашечку с кофе. - Я протестую.
Итальянец посмотрел на деньги, потом на свою спутницу. Девушка схватила деньги и сунула их в вырез блузки. - Grazie! - просиял итальянец. Он швырнул Беккеру ключи от веспы, затем взял свою девушку за руку, и они, смеясь, побежали к зданию клуба. - Aspetta! - закричал Беккер.
Это личный кабинет директора. - Это где-то здесь, - пробормотала она, вглядываясь в текст. - Стратмор обошел фильтры. Я в этом уверена. - Она подошла вплотную к окну.
Хейл задумчиво кивнул: - Quis custodiet ipsos custodes. Сьюзан была озадачена. - Это по-латыни, - объяснил Хейл. - Из сатир Ювенала. Это значит - Кто будет охранять охранников?.
