Microbiome as a therapeutic target
Authors: F.V. Moiseenko
The community of symbiotic microorganisms populating all the surfaces of human body that interact with outer medias plays an important role in human organism homeostasis, as far as in modulation of multiple normal or pathologic processes. As a consequence of such interaction the qualitative and quantitative composition of microbiome might influence many pathologic and physiologic processes, among which are malignant solid tumors. In this article we try to summarize up-to-date information on the role of microbiome in the appearance, clinical course, and treatment of various solid tumors.
