Summary of "The close interrelation between colorectal cancer, infection and microbiota."

Evaluate the recent literature about the relation of clinical infection and colorectal cancer in terms of diagnosis of an occult infection and possible impact on oncological outcome and review the possible role of the gut microbiota in the role of colorectal cancer oncogenesis.

Role of Gut Microbiota in the Development and Treatment of Colorectal Cancer.

Human guts harbor abundant microbes that regulate many aspects of host physiology. However, bacterial imbalance or dysbiosis in the gut due to the dietary or environmental changes may cause colorectal...

Enteric fungal microbiota dysbiosis and ecological alterations in colorectal cancer.

Bacteriome and virome alterations are associated with colorectal cancer (CRC). Nevertheless, the gut fungal microbiota in CRC remains largely unexplored. We aimed to characterise enteric mycobiome in ...

Is a fusobacterium nucleatum infection in the colon a risk factor for colorectal cancer?: a systematic review and meta-analysis protocol.

Despite a considerable amount of epidemiological research for identification of risk factors involved in the development of colorectal cancer, the current understanding of the etiology of this disease...

Effects of prebiotics on immunologic indicators and intestinal microbiota structure in perioperative colorectal cancer patients.

The aim of the present study was to investigate the effects of prebiotics (containing fructooligosaccharides, xylooligosaccharides, polydextrose, and resistant dextrin) intake on immune function and i...

A pilot study on clinicopathological features and intestinal microflora changes in colorectal cancer patients born over a nine-year period encompassing three years before and after the Great Chinese famine.

Exposure to energy restriction during childhood is associated with a lower risk of developing colorectal cancer (CRC). To date, the association between this critical period of growth and prognosis of ...

Gut Mucosal Microbiota is Associated With Colorectal Cancer Relapse

Colonic microbiome has been found to contribute to the development of colorectal cancer. We speculate that gut microbiota related to colorectal cancer relapse after curative treatment. Thi...

Possible Association of Intestinal Helminths and Protozoa With Colorectal Cancer Pathogenesis

Colorectal cancer (CRC) has the third highest cancer incidence in the world. There is mounting evidence that the intestinal microbiota plays an important role in colorectal carcinogenesis....

The Relationship Between Postoperative Changes of Oral and Intestinal Flora and Prognosis

Specific oral microbiome has been found to contribute to the development of colorectal cancer. We speculate that specific oral microbiota related to colorectal cancer relapse after curativ...

Gut Microbiota Prediction of Metachronous Colorectal Neoplasms

Patients with colorectal cancer are known to be at high risk of developing metachronous adenoma, however, participation in colonoscopy are low. Colonoscopy, the primary modality used all o...

Microbiota is Related With Increasing Infection Rates After Splenectomy

Studies has shown an increasingly infection rate after splenectomy, and there is a potential correlation between microbiota and immune system. investigators suppose that increasingly infec...

Medical and Biotech [MESH] Definitions

Tumors or cancer of the COLON or the RECTUM or both. Risk factors for colorectal cancer include chronic ULCERATIVE COLITIS; FAMILIAL POLYPOSIS COLI; exposure to ASBESTOS; and irradiation of the CERVIX UTERI.

Tumor suppressor genes located in the 5q21 region on the long arm of human chromosome 5. The mutation of these genes is associated with the formation of colorectal cancer (MCC stands for mutated in colorectal cancer).

Tumor suppressor genes located in the 18q21-qter region of human chromosome 18. The absence of these genes is associated with the formation of colorectal cancer (DCC stands for deleted in colorectal cancer). The products of these genes show significant homology to neural cell adhesion molecules and other related cell surface glycoproteins.

A group of autosomal-dominant inherited diseases in which COLON CANCER arises in discrete adenomas. Unlike FAMILIAL POLYPOSIS COLI with hundreds of polyps, hereditary nonpolyposis colorectal neoplasms occur much later, in the fourth and fifth decades. HNPCC has been associated with germline mutations in mismatch repair (MMR) genes. It has been subdivided into Lynch syndrome I or site-specific colonic cancer, and LYNCH SYNDROME II which includes extracolonic cancer.

Nuclear phosphoprotein encoded by the p53 gene (GENES, P53) whose normal function is to control CELL PROLIFERATION and APOPTOSIS. A mutant or absent p53 protein has been found in LEUKEMIA; OSTEOSARCOMA; LUNG CANCER; and COLORECTAL CANCER.
