Gut Microbiota Imbalance Promotes the Onset of Colorectal Cancer

Researchers have demonstrated that an imbalance in the gut microbiota, also known as 'dysbiosis', promotes the onset of colorectal cancer. The teams demonstrated that transplanting fecal ...

Achilles Heel of Tumor Cells

In almost all cases of colon cancer, a specific gene is mutated -- a fact that offers opportunities to develop broadly effective therapeutic approaches. Researchers have taken this a step ...

Tumors Turn Gut 'Brain Cells' Into Tumor Growth Promoters

When enteric glial cells are exposed to secretions from colon tumors, the glial cells convert into promoters of tumor growth. The work demonstrates enteric glial cells' importance in the tumor ...
