A traveling bacteria may contribute to colorectal cancer metastasization
When present in colorectal cancers, Fusobacterium nucleatum may enhance the process of metastasization – which raises the question of one day adding antibiotics to the treatment regimen of these cancers.
We hypothesize that Fusobacterium travels with the primary tumor cells to distant sites, as part of metastatic tissue colonization. – Matthew Meyerson et al.
