Research output: Chapter in Book/Report/Conference proceedingChapter

Abstract

Dysbiosis has been linked to IBD. The intestinal microbiota plays a fundamental role in health and the progression of diseases such as IBD and CRC. Many cancers arise from sites of infection and chronic inflammation. Patients with inflammatory Bowel Disease (IBD) have an increased risk of 10%-15% developing colorectal cancer. Therefore, a complete understanding of the composition and function of the gut microbiota is critical.
