Common plant fiber gel doubled rate of tumor eradication
Common plant fiber gel doubled rate of tumor eradication
Many people don't realize that the trillions of bacteria, viruses, and fungi residing within the gastrointestinal tract-collectively called the gut microbiome- are connected to overall health, and specifically to cancer. Manipulating the gut microbiome to produce "beneficial" commensal microbes, which protect the host from pathogens and can boost immune responses, among other things, could potentially help patients respond better to cancer drugs called immune checkpoint inhibitors, a type of immunotherapy.
