BACKGROUND Animal studies suggest that prebiotics and probiotics exert protective effects against tumor development in the colon, but human data supporting this suggestion are weak. OBJECTIVE The objective was to verify whether the prebiotic concept (selective interaction with colonic flora of nondigested carbohydrates) as induced by a synbiotic preparation-oligofructose-enriched inulin (SYN1) + Lactobacillus rhamnosus GG (LGG) and Bifidobacterium lactis Bb12 (BB12)-is able to reduce the risk… Expand

Synbiotics and Colorectal Cancer
TLDR
It is reported that administration of synbiotics results in noteworthy changes in the fecal flora, with an increase in Bifidobacterium and Lactobacillus and a reduction in the harmful pathogens such as Clostridium perfringens. Expand
Roles of Probiotics and Prebiotics in Colon Cancer Prevention: Postulated Mechanisms and In-vivo Evidence
  • M. Liong
  • Medicine
  • International journal of molecular sciences
  • 2008
TLDR
The colon cancer preventive effects by probiotics, prebiotics and synbiotics are highlighted and the controversial outcomes on the insignificant effect of these food adjuncts will be discussed. Expand
Cancer Prevention by Synbiotics Effect of Fiber-Rich Sourdough Fermentation
TLDR
Proposed mechanisms of action of probiotics lactobacilli starters and prebiotics dietary fibers in cancer include binding of carcinogens, alteration in gut microbiota formation and metabolism of carcinogenic substances, stimulation suppression of carcinogenesis, improvement in epithelial barrier function, anti-inflammatory effects, inductance of apoptosis, and inductANCE of protective enzymes. Expand
Potential of probiotics, prebiotics and synbiotics for management of colorectal cancer
TLDR
An attempt is made to abridge the role of carcinogen in colorectal cancer establishment and prognosis, where special attention has been paid to food-borne mutagens and functional role of beneficial human gut microbiome in evading cancer. Expand
Probiotics, Prebiotics, Synbiotics: Is There Enough Evidence to Support Their Use in Colorectal Cancer Surgery?
TLDR
Despite the positive results and plethora of agents, bacterial combinations and concentrations, the inconsistency in administration, the inhomogeneity of comparison groups and lack of stringent clinical endpoints remain obstacles in the effort to establish a definitive clinical strategy at this time. Expand
Potential role of probiotics on colorectal cancer prevention
TLDR
Several mechanisms could explain the preventive action of probiotics against colorectal cancer onset: alteration of the intestinal microflora; inactivation of cancerogenic compounds; competition with putrefactive and pathogenic microbiota; improvement of the host’s immune response; and inhibition of tyrosine kinase signaling pathways. Expand
Effect of prebiotics on biomarkers of colorectal cancer in humans: a systematic review.
TLDR
Lactulose reduced adenoma recurrence, while resistant starch had no effect on adenomas or CRC development, and Crypt mitotic location, gene expression, and DNA methylation were somewhat improved after resistant starch consumption, while more human studies measuring physical changes to the gut are needed. Expand
Overview of experimental data on reduction of colorectal cancer risk by inulin-type fructans.
TLDR
There is considerable experimental evidence that inulin modulates parameters of colon cancer risks in human colon cells, in animals, and in a human intervention trial. Expand
Preclinical and clinical relevance of probiotics and synbiotics in colorectal carcinogenesis: a systematic review.
TLDR
Positive effects of probiotics and synbiotics in preventing colorectal cancer were showed and the main mechanisms identified were alterations in the composition and metabolic activity of the intestinal microbiota. Expand
Impact of Probiotics and Prebiotics on Colon Cancer: Mechanistic Insights and Future Approaches
TLDR
This review has been collated to present tremendous benefits and future potential of pro- and prebiotics in the treatment of colon cancer and to overview the mechanisms of probiotic actions along with their impact on humans. Expand

Intestinal immunity of rats with colon cancer is modulated by oligofructose-enriched inulin combined with Lactobacillus rhamnosus and Bifidobacterium lactis.
TLDR
Overall, SYN supplementation in carcinogen-treated rats primarily modulated immune functions in the PP, coinciding with a reduced number of colon tumours. Expand
The SYNCAN project: goals, set-up, first results and settings of the human intervention study
TLDR
The present paper describes the experimental design of the EU-sponsored SYNCAN study, and demonstrates a functional effect of the synbiotic preparation (probiotic survival during gastrointestinal transit and modification of the intestinal flora). Expand
Fecal Water Genotoxicity Is Predictive of Tumor-Preventive Activities by Inulin-Like Oligofructoses, Probiotics (Lactobacillus rhamnosus and Bifidobacterium lactis), and Their Synbiotic Combination
TLDR
Assessment of aqueous fecal extracts of samples from a chronic study with rats fed prebiotics, probiotics, and their combination found DNA damage by samples from AOM-treated, tumor-free rats was significantly lower than from tumor-bearing animals, especially after 4 mo of synbiotic and prebiotic interventions. Expand
Antitumorigenic activity of the prebiotic inulin enriched with oligofructose in combination with the probiotics Lactobacillus rhamnosus and Bifidobacterium lactis on azoxymethane-induced colon carcinogenesis in rats.
TLDR
In conclusion, prebiotic administration in the diet decreases AOM-induced carcinogenesis in rats and protects rats against azoxymethane (AOM)-induced colon cancer. Expand
Inulin-type fructans and reduction in colon cancer risk: review of experimental and human data
TLDR
Evidence has been accumulated that shows that inulin-type fructans and corresponding fermentation products reduced the risks for colon cancer, including the reduction of exposure to risk factors and suppression of tumour cell survival. Expand
Effect of dietary oligofructose and inulin on colonic preneoplastic aberrant crypt foci inhibition.
TLDR
The findings suggest that chicory fructan supplements inhibit ACF formation, an early preneoplastic marker of malignant potential in the process of colon carcinogenesis. Expand
Bifidobacterium longum, a lactic acid-producing intestinal bacterium inhibits colon cancer and modulates the intermediate biomarkers of colon carcinogenesis.
TLDR
Data suggest that oral administration of probiotic B. longum exerts strong antitumor activity, as indicated by modulation of the intermediate biomarkers of colon cancer, and consequently reduced tumor outcome. Expand

TLDR
The mechanisms by which probiotic bacteria may inhibit colon cancer are still poorly understood, but, several potential mechanisms are being discussed in the literature, and these will also be addressed in this review. Expand
Dietary modulation of the human colonic microbiota: introducing the concept of prebiotics.
TLDR
By combining the rationale of pro- and prebiotics, the concept of synbiotics is proposed to characterize some colonic foods with interesting nutritional properties that make these compounds candidates for classification as health-enhancing functional food ingredients. Expand

TLDR
F folate supplementation decreases colonic mucosal cell proliferation in a high risk group for colon cancer and the most significant reduction takes place at the luminal aspect of the crypt. Expand
