“Unveiling New Players in the Tumor Microenvironment: Tumor-Resident Microbes (TRM)
Key Takeaways from “Tumor-resident microbes: the new kids on the microenvironment block”:

Fundamental Role:TRMs are crucial components of the tumor microenvironment, influencing tumor growth, distant dissemination, and response to therapies. Technological Advances: Recent advancements in technology are enhancing the identification and visualization of cell type-specific microbes within the TME.

Therapeutic Target: Understanding the role of TRMs opens new perspectives for targeting microbes or utilizing microbial interventions in cancer interception or therapy.

Impact on Metastasis and Immunity: TRMs can facilitate metastasis and alter the body’s immune response to cancer, affecting treatment efficacy. Therapeutic Strategies: Exploration of prebiotics, probiotics, and fecal microbiome transfers as potential enhancements to immunotherapy and chemotherapy.

This study highlights the emerging importance of microbes in cancer development and treatment, marking a promising advancement in oncological research.”
