There is increasing literature on the composition and putative influence of the gut microbiome in many areas of medical research. In cancer, evidence suggests that the microbiome may influence cancer growth and response to treatment. But it is not clear what is association, or cause and effect. We are even less clear what clinicians or patients can do to influence the microbiome.
This session, chaired by an eminent clinical nutrition expert, will invite a team of researchers to convince each other and, importantly, a patient representative about what their area of work has contributed to our understanding.
