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 Special Issue 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

Submission Instructions

  • Research papers, Reviews and Commentaries will be considered for publication

  • Papers will be published online as they are accepted
