Special Issue "Intestinal Microbes and Cancer"
Deadline for manuscript submissions: closed (30 November 2017).
Interests: Host-pathogen interactions, microbes and cancer
The human gastrointestinal tract is constantly exposed to microorganisms. It is now recognized that microbes are potent modulators of the homeostasis and disease status of the intestinal tract. The connection between microbes and cancer has important implications to cancer prevention, diagnosis and treatment. On one hand, individual microbes or microbial communities can cause cancer, increase cancer risks or affect the efficacy of cancer therapy. On the other hand, the effect of individual microbes or microbial communities can be influenced by host genetic, environmental and dietary factors. This Special Issue intends to focus on new developments and concepts in the field of microbes and cancer. Research or review articles on any topic within the field will be considered. We look forward to your contributions.
