    - Smectite clay promotes lactic acid bacteria (LABs) to form biofilms on its surface - Smectite with LABs inhibits tumor growth in mice - Smectite with LABs enhances anti-cancer chemo/immunotherapy in mice - Smectite with LABs activates dendritic cells via TLR2 signaling
  • [1.2
    - #kynurenine—a tryptophan metabolite that blocks antitumour immunity—inhibits T cell proliferation in a manner that can be rescued by BH4.
  • - The enzyme co-factor #Tetrahydrobiopterin (BH4) is involved in the production of monoamine neurotransmitters, the generation of nitric oxide, and pain. - Administration of BH4 to mice markedly reduces tumour growth and expands the population of intratumoral effector T cells.
  • [1.3
    - Disruption of the microbiome leads to changes in intestinal barrier function, which could lead to bacterial translocation and result in chronic inflammation. - Chronic inflammation over the years results in altered immune responses and increases risk of tumor formation and progression.
  • - #Bifidobacterium is associated with antitumor effects, and oral administration of #Bifidobacterium alone improved tumor control to the same degree as PD-L1 antibody therapy while combination treatment nearly abolished tumor growth in mice.
  • [1.4
    - #IL-15 signaling is required for NK cell proliferation, survival, and anti-tumor function in the tumor microenvironment .
  • [1.5
    - #Clostridium spp. destroy tumors by secreting exotoxins that damage the membrane structures of cancer cells and enter cells to disrupt essential cellular functions. - The introduction of #Clostridium spp. recruits CD8+ T cells, granulocytes, and macrophages to the infection area and induces the release of TNF-related apoptosis-inducing ligand (TRAIL) from neutrophils.
  • - #Listeria spp. target tumors through the intracellular infection of tumor-infiltrating myeloid-derived suppressor cells (MDSCs), which migrate to the immunosuppressive TME. - The transported #Listeria is then transmitted from MDSCs to cancer cells via a unique cell–cell spread mechanism. - The shrinkage of tumors by #Listeria spp. involves the combination of the direct killing of cancer cells by #Listeria infection and cytotoxic T cell response toward #Listeria antigens. - #Listeria spp. convert a subpopulation of #Listeria-infected MDSCs into an immune-stimulating phenotype that produces interleukin-12 (IL-12), a cytokine linked with heightened T cell and NK cell responses. - #Listeria spp. directly kill cancer cells by activating NADP (+) oxidase and increasing intracellular calcium levels, which trigger the production of reactive oxygen species (ROS)
  • [#Probiotic (Bifidobacter and Lactobacilus)] - Certain probiotic bacteria reportedly demonstrated effects in suppressing and regressing cancer. - Their mechanisms include maintaining physicochemical conditions in the colon (e.g., pH and bile acid profile), balancing the quantity of beneficial gut microbiota members through the production of short-chain fatty acids, reducing the abundance of putrefactive bacteria producing enzymes such as azoreductase, β-glucosidase, β-glucuronidase, and nitroreductase, binding and degrading mutagenic compounds, as well as performing immunomodulatory activities. - Experimentations with wild-type probiotics have been performed against not only colorectal cancer, but also other cancers such as bladder, breast, cervical, and liver cancers. - Instead of oral administration, probiotics can also be delivered locally at tumor sites, which can reduce non-specific pharmacological effects on non-tumor tissues.
  • [#Salmonella typhimurium] - S. typhimurium, an intracellular pathogen, is chemoattracted to, and retained in, tumors due to the presence of metabolites produced by quiescent cancer cells within the TME (Tumor Micro envirounment). - Once in the tumor, S. typhimurium continues to proliferate and directly kills cancer cells by triggering of apoptosis, necrosis, and cell rupture. - S. typhimurium flagellin has been found to mount the antitumor response of CD8+ T and Natural Killer (NK) cells and to reduce the frequency of regulatory T cells (Tregs)
  • - #Salmonella spp. also induce cancer cells to produce the gap junction protein, connexin 43, which enhances the transfer and cross-presentation of processed tumor antigenic peptides between cancer cells and dendritic cells (DCs), and reduce the expression of the immunosuppressive enzyme indoleamine 2,3-dioxygenase (IDO)

    - Intratumoral bacteria can directly modulate antitumor immune responses.
  • [#Fusobacterium nucleatum] - F. nucleatum and certain co-occurring bacteria were present not only in primary tumors but also in distant metastases.

  • [1.11
    - Bacteroides fragilis, Bifidobacterium longum, Barnesiella intestinihomins or Alistipes shahii to support anticancer immunity by activating dendritic cells (DCs), by stimulating the production of interleukin-12 (IL-12) by DCs, by enhancing recruitment of tumor-specific cytotoxic T lymphocytes (CTLs), by triggering the production of interferon-γ (IFNγ) by tumor-infiltrating γδ T cells or by elevating the production of TNFα by intratumoural myeloid cells.
  • [1.12

  • [1.14] [#Fasting
    - Calorie restriction (CR) without malnutrition remains the most robust intervention to date for cancer prevention in rodents and monkeys, and, in humans, it promotes anticarcinogenic adaptations such as decreased production of growth factors, inflammatory cytokines, and anabolic hormones as well as decreased oxidative stress and free-radical–induced DNA damage.
  • [1.15] [#Oral administration of Inulin Gel
    - In multiple murine tumour models, #Inulin—a widely consumed dietary fibre—formulated as a ‘colon-retentive’ orally administered gel can effectively modulate the gut microbiome in situ, induce systemic memory-T-cell responses and amplify the antitumour activity of the checkpoint inhibitor anti-programmed cell death protein-1 (α-PD-1). - Orally delivered #Inulin-gel treatments increased the relative abundances of key commensal microorganisms and their short-chain-fatty-acid metabolites, and led to enhanced recall responses for interferon-γ+CD8+ T cells as well as to the establishment of stem-like T-cell factor-1+PD-1+CD8+ T cells within the tumour microenvironment.
  • [1.16] [#High salt diet
    - HSD increased the abundance of #Bifidobacterium and caused increased gut permeability leading to intratumor localization of #Bifidobacterium, which enhanced NK cell functions and tumor regression. - Intratumoral injections of #Bifidobacterium activated NK cells, which inhibited tumor growth.
  • [#High salt diet] - High-salt diet (HSD) modulates effector and regulatory T cell functions and promotes tissue inflammation in autoimmune diseases. - HSD induces natural killer (NK) cell–mediated tumor immunity by inhibiting PD-1 expression while enhancing IFNγ and serum hippurate. - Salt enhanced tumor immunity when combined with a suboptimal dose of anti-PD1 antibody.

    - IL-1β was linked to lower expression of #E-cadherin, which promotes cell migration - Low #E-cadherin expression is correlated with disorders of cellular functions, growth inhibition, apoptosis, cell cycle arrest, and differentiation. It leads to aggressive carcinoma, higher invasiveness, and low patient survival
  • [#Fusobacteria] - fusobacterial adhesin/invasin FadA, which binds to #E-cadherin on carcinoma cells and activates β-catenin signaling. This pathway results in enhanced transcriptional activity of Wnt, activation of pro-inflammatory cytokines, oncogenes, and stimulation of cancer cells proliferation
  • [#IL-1b] - In tissues of the periodontium, monocytes/macrophages, neutrophils, fibroblasts, and mast cells are the primary sources of IL-1β. - these cells synthesize IL-1β in response to activation from the influence of #Lipopolysaccharide (LPS), the main component of Gram-negative bacteria cell walls. - IL-1β causes osteoclast formation and bone resorption, which leads to local inflammatory changes in the periodontium. - IL-1β activates endothelial cells to produce vascular endothelial growth factor (VEGF) and other proangiogenic factors (e.g., TNF) which provide an inflammatory microenvironment for angiogenesis and tumor progression. - High IL-1β content is associated with tumor invasiveness, migration, and more aggressive tumor phenotype.

  • - The consumption of sporangial bacteria represents another method used in the experiments with #Clostridium novyi, which can live under unfavorable environmental conditions. - This micro-organism favors anaerobic environments that are present in the tumor. Rather than spreading throughout the body, the bacteria are guided only to the tumor area, where they have an ideal growth environment. - This microbial property protects the patient from the occurrence of serious infections
  • - #Clostridium novyi and #Salmonella enterica serovar Typhimurium: The greatest advantage of using these microorganisms is that they locate directly inside the tumor, in contrast to chemotherapeutics, which spread throughout the body with blood, also destroying normal, healthy cells.

  • [#Candida tropicalis] - #Aspergillus fumigatus, C. tropicalis, and #Acremonium exuviarum, all labelled as “oncogenic fungi”
  • - #Candidalysin, a toxic epithelium-damaging substance produced by #Candida, has been postulated to enhance tumor-promoting immunity
  • - The #Polysaccharide FMP-1 derived from #Morchella esculenta is attributed with #Prebiotic benefits and potential anti-tumor activity owing to its antioxidant capabilities
  • - #Morchella, recognized for its potent inhibitory activity against harmful bacteria, experiences a noteworthy reduction in reduction in individuals with premalignant and malignant conditions.
  • [1.77] [#Enterococcus faecium
    - enrichment of E. faecium has been associated with an improved response to various types of cancer immunotherapy
  • [#Muramyldipeptides, #Secreted antigen A] - MDPs generated by SagA could also increase anti-tumor immunity and improve cancer immunotherapy outcomes
  • [1.78] [#Breast cancer] [#Metformin] [#Keto diet
    - animals treated with the combination regimen showed significantly lower tumor burden, higher tumor latency and slower tumor growth. - lowering systemic #Glucose by this combined dietary and pharmacologic approach improved overall survival in our mouse model by 31 days, which is approximately equivalent to 3 human years.
  • [1.79] [#Immune checkpoint inhibitor
    - resistance is attributable to the activity of #Vitamin D on intestinal epithelial cells, which alters microbiome composition in favor of #Bacteroides fragilis, which positively regulates cancer immunity.
  • [#Immune checkpoint inhibitor] - mice with increased availability of #Vitamin D display greater immune-dependent resistance to transplantable cancers and augmented responses to checkpoint blockade immunotherapies.
  • - in humans, #Vitamin D–induced genes correlate with improved responses to #Immune checkpoint inhibitor treatment as well as with immunity to cancer and increased overall survival.
  • [#Lactobacillus plantarum] [#Polysaccharide] - #Rhamnose-rich polysaccharides (RHP) from a commensal strain of Lactiplantibacillus plantarum have now been shown to induce #Iron sequestration by tumor macrophages, thereby limiting tumor growth and promoting antitumor immunity.
