Gut microbiota in cancer development and treatment

Diverse and balanced intestinal microbiome is critical for human health in multiple ways, and it has been increasingly recognized as a key player in the development of various cancers—not just in the gastrointestinal tract—and a potential target for therapy. This Collection will highlight the current state of research on gut microbiota in oncogenesis and cancer therapy, immunity, epidemiology, data integration, and others. This Article Collection will publish articles that investigate:

  • Molecular pathways connecting the gut microbiome and tumorigenesis
  • Mechanisms of cancer pathogenesis with respect to the microbiome
  • Contributions of individual bacterial species/strains to tumor suppression and oncogenesis
  • Regulation of the tumor microenvironment and anti-tumor immunity by the gut microbiota
  • The role of gut infection and metabolites
  • Modulation of gut microbiome in cancer therapy
  • Cancer management in subjects with dysbiosis

Research papers, Reviews and Commentaries will be considered for publication. Papers will be published online as they are accepted
