Abstract

Increasing knowledge about the gut microbiota composition together with a resurgence in attention to the impact of the host immune system on tumor development triggered our interest in exploring how the interplay of the microbiota and the immune system represents an emerging area of interest. Determining how the immune system may alter gut microbiota composition, or the converse, and whether these interactions increase or reduce cancer risk may be relevant to generate more effective colon cancer preventive strategies.
