- P. gingivalis was detected immunohistochemically in 61 % of cancerous tissues, 12 % of adjacent tissues and was undetected in normal esophageal mucosa. A similar distribution of lysine-specific gingipain, a catalytic endoprotease uniquely secreted by P. gingivalis, and P. gingivalis 16S rDNA was also observed.
- P. gingivalis infection positively associated with multiple clinicopathologic characteristics, including differentiation status, metastasis, and overall survival rate. (1)

Shared Reference Notes

  • [1.1
    - The presence of oral P. gingivalis and T. forsythia associate with an increased risk of esophageal cancer. - P. gingivalis and T. forsythia are included in signaling pathways responsible for cancer development. - T. forsythia may induce pro-inflammatory cytokines such as IL-1β and IL-6 by CD4 + T helper cells and TNF-α. - gingipain K produced by P. gingivalis, affects hosts immune system by degradation of immunoglobulins and complement system.
  • [1.2] [#Cladosporium cladosporiode
    - In a mouse model of esophageal cancer, oral fungi Cladosporium cladosporiodes reportedly increased the severity of ESCC, which was, interestingly reversed by antifungal treatment.
  • - infections #HPV and #EBV reportedly increased risk of esophageal squamous cell carcinoma
  • [1.3] [#Head & Neck cancer, #Oral cancer
    - Among streptococci, #Streptococcus anginosus seems to be an especially relevant marker of head, neck, and esophageal cancers
  • [1.4] [#Biliary tract cancer, #Colorectal cancer, #Gallbladder cancer, #Pancreatic Cancer
  • [1.5] [#Fusobacterium nucleatum
    - F. nucleatum was suggested to be enriched in #Cervical cancer and esophageal cancer compared to adjacent healthy tissue.
