Probiotics have been suggested to be involved in both prevention and treatment of various human cancers. Probiotics in Anticancer Immunity is a set of volumes in the Frontiers in Cancer Immunology series that explains biochemical mechanisms of anticancer immunity exerted by probiotics in various human cancers. It presents edited chapters focused on the evidence of probiotic use against human cancers through several animal and human studies.
This volume of Probiotics in Anticancer Immunity consists of 11 chapters. The introductory chapters provide information about the link between gut microbiota and the host immune system in cancer and the general mechanisms of anticancer immunity exerted by probiotics. Subsequent chapters are focused on probiotics’ anticancer immunity in specific cancers such as, skin cancer, stomach cancer, breast cancer, lung cancer, head and neck cancer, liver cancer, cervical and colon cancer.
