New technologies in developing recombinant‐attenuated bacteria for cancer therapy
TLDR
A review of new technologies or approaches that may improve bacteria‐mediated cancer therapy by focusing on the generation of attenuated bacterial strains with higher targeting for tumor tissue, and optimization of the delivery of therapeutic antitumor cargoes into the tumor microenvironment.
Optimized Attenuated Salmonella Typhimurium Suppressed Tumor Growth and Improved Survival in Mice
TLDR
It is demonstrated that the beneficial anti-tumor efficacy of attenuated S. Typhimurium bacteria could be improved through delivery of drug molecules with powerful anti-Tumor activities.
Pseudomonas aeruginosa in Cancer Therapy: Current Knowledge, Challenges and Future Perspectives
TLDR
P. aeruginosa, a Gram-negative bacterial pathogen, is one of the common bacteria used in development of bacteria-based cancer therapy, particularly known for the Pseudomonas exotoxin A-based immunotoxins, which have shown remarkable anti-tumor efficacy and specificity.
Highlights of Immunomodulation in Salmonella-Based Cancer Therapy
TLDR
Modifications of Salmonella-based treatment in the attempt to improve tumor-specific immune responses including cytokine therapy, gene therapy, and DNA vaccine delivery are discussed.
Construction and investigation of plasmid-induced effects on growth of GFP-expressing Salmonella strains
TLDR
GFP-transformed Salmonella, specifically the BDLA S. Agona strain, could be utilised as a powerful tool for future studies on the mechanism of tumour suppression and real-time in vivo biodistribution of the strain.
Bacteria-cancer interactions: bacteria-based cancer therapy
TLDR
Live tumor-targeting bacteria can selectively induce cancer regression and, with the help of genetic engineering, be made safe and effective vehicles for delivering drugs to tumor cells.
Current Status and Future Directions of Bacteria-Based Immunotherapy
TLDR
This review will cover the inherent advantages of unedited bacteria, highlight how bacteria can be engineered to provide greater tumor-targeting properties, enhanced immune-modulation effect, and improved safety, and highlight the future directions and potential opportunities of this emerging field.
Innovative Approaches of Engineering Tumor-Targeting Bacteria with Different Therapeutic Payloads to Fight Cancer: A Smart Strategy of Disease Management
TLDR
The mechanism by which bacteria sense tumor microenvironment, role of some anticancer agents, and the recent advancement of engineering bacteria with different therapeutic payloads to combat cancers has been reviewed.
Integration of Salmonella into Combination Cancer Therapy
TLDR
The advantages that make Salmoneella a good candidate for combination cancer therapy are described and the findings of representative studies that aimed to investigate the therapeutic outcome of combination therapies involving Salmonella are summarized.

Monotherapy with a tumor-targeting mutant of Salmonella typhimurium cures orthotopic metastatic mouse models of human prostate cancer
TLDR
The approach described here, where bacterial monotherapy effectively treats metastatic prostate tumors, is a significant improvement over previous bacterial tumor-therapy strategies that require combination with toxic chemotherapy.
Efficiency of Conditionally Attenuated Salmonella enterica Serovar Typhimurium in Bacterium-Mediated Tumor Therapy
TLDR
The present study establishes a basis for the development of an applicably cancer therapeutic bacterium conditionally modified in their LPS phenotype that could represent a suitable vehicle to shuttle therapeutic compounds directly into cancerous tissue without harming the host.
Attenuated mutant strain of Salmonella Typhimurium lacking the ZnuABC transporter contrasts tumor growth promoting anti-cancer immune response
TLDR
Investigating the tumor targeting efficacy and mechanism of action of a specific attenuated mutant strain of Salmonella Typhimurium devoid of the whole operon coding for the high-affinity zinc transporter ZnuABC provides evidence that STM stimulates a potent inflammatory response and a specific immune pattern, recruiting a large number of innate and adaptive immune cells capable to contrast the immunosuppressive environment generated by tumors.
Obligate anaerobic Salmonella typhimurium strain YB1 treatment on xenograft tumor in immunocompetent mouse model.
TLDR
The findings of the present study indicate that the YB1 strain is effective and safe in targeting a colon cancer tumor in an immunocompetent mouse model.
Endostatin gene therapy delivered by attenuated Salmonellatyphimurium in murine tumor models
TLDR
Immunohistochemical studies demonstrated that, when tumor-bearing mice were infected with S636/pES, Salmonella colonization and endostatin expression were accompanied by the increase of apoptosis level and suppression of tumor angiogenesis within tumor tissues.

TLDR
The genetically modified bacteria strain, Salmonella typhimurium A1, selected for anticancer activity in vivo grew throughout the tumor, including viable malignant tissue, in marked contrast to bacteria previously tried for cancer therapy that were confined to necrotic areas of the tumor.
Genetically engineered Salmonella typhimurium as an imageable therapeutic probe for cancer.
TLDR
This work successfully visualized the therapeutic process with these engineered bacteria in mice and found that they often mediated complete tumor eradication on cytotoxic gene induction and markedly suppressed metastatic tumor growth.
Explicit hypoxia targeting with tumor suppression by creating an “obligate” anaerobic Salmonella Typhimurium strain
TLDR
Salmonella Typhimurium strain SL7207 was engineered to survive only in anaerobic conditions (strain YB1) without otherwise affecting its functions, providing a safe bacterial vector for anti-tumor therapies without compromising the other functions or tumor fitness of the bacterium as attenuation methods normally do.
Two-step enhanced cancer immunotherapy with engineered Salmonella typhimurium secreting heterologous flagellin
TLDR
Evidence is provided that nonvirulent tumor-targeting bacteria releasing multiple TLR ligands can be used as cancer immunotherapeutics, and that TLR4 signaling is a requisite for tumor suppression mediated by FlaB-secreting bacteria.
Targeted therapy with a Salmonella typhimurium leucine-arginine auxotroph cures orthotopic human breast tumors in nude mice.
TLDR
A modified auxotrophic strain of Salmonella typhimurium that can target and cure breast tumors in orthotopic mouse models is reported, suggesting that amino acid Auxotrophic virulent bacteria, which selectively infect and attack viable tumor tissue, are a promising approach to cancer therapy.
