Ingestion of viable probiotics or prebiotics is associated with anticarcinogenic effects, one mechanism of which is the detoxification of genotoxins in the gut. This mechanism was shown experimentally in animals with use of the rat colon carcinogen 1,2-dimethylhydrazine and by determining endpoints that range from tumorigenesis to induction of DNA damage. Because of the complexity of cancer initiation, cancer progression, and the exposure of cancer in the gut, many types of interactions may be… Expand
Roles of Probiotics and Prebiotics in Colon Cancer Prevention: Postulated Mechanisms and In-vivo Evidence

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
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
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
Potential anticarcinogenic effects of lactic acid bacteria and probiotics in detoxification of process-induced food toxicants
TLDR
It can be concluded that probiotics can play a vital role in prevention of colon cancer that is induced by food toxicants and their incorporation into food can be helpful in this respect. Expand
Cancer-preventing attributes of probiotics: an update
TLDR
There is no direct experimental evidence for cancer suppression in human subjects as a result of the consumption of probiotic cultures in fermented or unfermented dairy products, but there is a wealth of indirect evidence based largely on laboratory studies. Expand
Probiotics and prebiotics — renaissance of a therapeutic principle
TLDR
Experimental and clinical studies examine the prerequisites for the administration of probiotics in digestive diseases, allergic and atopic affections, as well as in some extraintestinal conditions. Expand
Probiotics and Colorectal Cancer
TLDR
The main therapeutic and health benefits of probiotics include prevention of diarrhea, hypercholesterolemia, and inflammatory bowel disease and improvement in lactose utilization and mineral absorption, anti-Helicobacter pylori activity, and anticancerous activity. Expand
A potential role of probiotics in colorectal cancer prevention: review of possible mechanisms of action
TLDR
Existing evidence clearly support a multifaceted immunomodulatory role of probiotics in CRC, particularly its ability to modulate intestinal inflammation, a well known risk factor for CRC. Expand
Administration of Metabiotics Extracted From Probiotic Lactobacillus rhamnosus MD 14 Inhibit Experimental Colorectal Carcinogenesis by Targeting Wnt/β-Catenin Pathway
TLDR
It can be suggested that metabiotics modulate experimental colorectal cancer and could be used as a promising alternative of probiotics, particularly in immunocompromised individuals. Expand
Probiotics and Enteric Cancers
TLDR
Probiotics have been found to inhibit the development of aberrant crypt foci, increased plasma total antioxidant potentials, decreased plasma lipid peroxidation, and the inhibition of attaching-effacing lesion formation, that lead to decreased and/or improved incidences of gut lesions. Expand

Antigenotoxic properties of lactic acid bacteria in vivo in the gastrointestinal tract of rats.
TLDR
A method to assess DNA damage in tumor target tissues of the gastrointestinal tract and elucidate antigenotoxic properties of food components in vivo in those target tissues actually afflicted by dietary-related tumors is developed. Expand
Anticarcinogenic, hypocholesterolemic, and antagonistic activities of Lactobacillus acidophilus.
TLDR
Lactobacillus acidophilus is considered to possess health-promoting attributes and antagonistic action against intestinal and food-born pathogens that accrue over a longer period than those organisms that cannot colonize the gut. Expand
Effect of Bifidobacterium longum and inulin on gut bacterial metabolism and carcinogen-induced aberrant crypt foci in rats.
TLDR
The results suggest that consumption of B. longum or inulin was associated with potentially beneficial changes in caecal physiology and bacterial metabolic activity in relation to tumour risk and in the incidence of putative preneoplastic lesions in the colon. Expand
Lactobacillus- and bifidobacterium-mediated antigenotoxicity in the colon of rats.
TLDR
These studies show that most, but not all, LAB tested could strongly inhibit genotoxicity in the GI tract of the rat and that viable LAB organisms are required for the protective effect in vivo. Expand
The carbohydrate crystalean and colonic microflora modulate expression of glutathione S-transferase subunits in colon of rats
TLDR
These findings clearly demonstrate that the gut bacteria, or their metabolic products, enhance GST expression, and support the hypothesis that nutrition – by affecting the gut flora – may induce this potentially protective and important class of phase II enzymes in important tumor target cells. Expand
Antigenotoxic properties of lactic acid bacteria in the S. typhimurium mutagenicity assay.
TLDR
The results imply that some bacteria used in milk processing have an antimutagenic potential and that this property is specific for the bacterial strain. Expand
Effect of Lactobacillus acidophilus dietary supplements on 1,2-dimethylhydrazine dihydrochloride-induced intestinal cancer in rats.
TLDR
Dietary supplements of L. acidophilus seemed to increase the latency or induction time for experimental colon cancer, especially in rats eating the meat diet. Expand
Effects of Lactulose and Lactitol on Colonic Microflora and Enzymatic Activity.
TLDR
It is suggested that lactulose and lactitol are not comparable in their effect on the colonic microflora, its metabolism, and the consequent probiotic effects on human health, suggesting that neither compound is equipotent. Expand
The possible role of probiotics as dietary antimutagen.
TLDR
Using busulfan as a mutagen both the chromosome aberration test and the micronucleus test showed strong anticlastogenic action when L. casei, Omniflora or yoghurt (with living bifiobacteria) were given orally at the same time as the mutagen. Expand
Administration of transgalacto-oligosaccharides increases fecal bifidobacteria and modifies colonic fermentation metabolism in healthy humans.
TLDR
Prolonged administration of transgalacto-oligosaccharides, at a dose which does not induce digestive symptoms, increases the number of bifidobacteria and alters the fermentative activity of colonic flora in humans. Expand
