Potential therapeutic strategies to target gut microbiota in hepatocellular carcinoma

Authors: Amedeo Amedei

Abstract

The gut microbiota (GM) is an assorted ecosystem, composed of viruses, fungi, protozoa, archaea, and especially bacteria, which exist in a definite symbiosis between each other and the host (human) as well. Increasing data document that GM plays key parts in human physiology, taking part in the digestive process, vitamin B synthesis, promotion of angiogenesis and nerve functionality, and notably in the maturation and modulation of the immune system.
