ES15.06 - The Role of Microbiome Restoration in Chemotherapy and Immunotherapy (Now Available) (ID 3240)
11:00 - 12:45 | Presenting Author(s): Alexandre Chan
Microbiomes are composed of bacteria, viruses, fungi, protozoa and archaea that reside on the surface of our body’s epithelial barrier. There is increasing evidence to suggest microbiomes’ role in carcinogenesis as well as cancer treatment efficacy and toxicity. In this presentation, we will focus on the impact of gut microbiome on efficacy of chemotherapy and immunotherapy. We will also discuss strategies to restore gut microbiome, with the potential on improving the delivery of chemotherapy and immunotherapy.
