Recent studies suggest that the gut microbiota plays a key role in the tolerance to and efficacy of some anti-cancer treatments.
It is therefore tempting to hypothesize that nutrition could modulate the gut microbiota, subsequently influence the immune system and finally impact on the prognosis of cancer patients.
A better understanding of the association between nutrition and gut microbiota could open up new therapeutic options for chronic diseases, as cancer.
To create a group of physicians/scientists/health professional/industrial interested by the nutritional modulation of microbiota and its impact on energy metabolism.
