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.

Key features

- Gives a new dimensions and insight in the role of probiotics in anticancer immunity towards various human cancers

- Provides several color figures and tables to clearly explain relevant information.

- Includes recent information with new insights and references

- Meets the needs of basic (pre-clinical) and advanced clinical researchers and postgraduate scholars


The book 'Frontiers in Cancer Immunology (volume 3) Probiotics in Anticancer Immunity' is focused on the role of probiotics in exerting the anticancer immunity. With the diverse role of probiotics in benefitting the human health, their role in prevention and management of various human cancers cannot be denied. The book is focused on delivering the evidence of the use of probiotics in human cancers through several animal and human studies, in addition to highlighting their mechanistic role.

The book ‘Probiotics in Anticancer Immunity’ consists of total 11 chapters. The initial two chapters provide the basic background of the interaction of gut microbiota and host immune system in cancer and the different mechanisms by which probiotics can induce/exert the anticancer immunity.

The subsequent chapters deal with the specific cancer conditions such as cancer of skin, colon, colorectal, breast, stomach, liver, cervical, lung, and head & neck, and mechanistic role of probiotics in inducing the anticancer immunity. Moreover, the role of gut microbiota in the dysbiosis and management and/or prevention of these cancers is also put forward.

We, the editorial team, strongly believe that the contents of the individual chapters will provide recent and updated information as well as new insights into the role of probiotics in anticancer immunity. As such, the book will be useful in education and as a scientific tool for academics, clinicians, scientists, researchers, and health professionals in various disciplines including microbiology, medical microbiology, immunology, biotechnology, and medicine.

As the editors, we would like to express our sincere gratitude to all authors for their excellent contributions. We are also indebted to the publishers for their efforts to publish the book in a timely fashion.
