The Microbiome and Genitourinary Cancer: A Collaborative Review

ConclusionsThe role of the microbiome in genitourinary cancer is an emerging field that merits further studies. Translating microbiome research into clinical action will require incorporation of microbiome surveillance into ongoing and future clinical trials as well as expansion of studies to include metagenomic sequencing and metabolomics.Patient summaryThis review covers recent evidence that microbial populations that reside in the genitourinary tract—and were previously not known to exist—may influence the development of genitourinary malignancies including bladder, kidney, and prostate cancers. Furthermore, microbial populations that exist at sites outside of the genitourinary tract, such as those that reside in our gut, may influence cancer development and/or treatment response.

Conclusion: Our work represents the initial experience in the liver transplantation technique for thrombectomy in distinct and well-selected patients with atrial tumor thrombi. The effectiveness of this approach needs further study. The video presentation of our research took place in March 2019 at the 34th Annual EAU Congress in Barcelona. PMID: 32612649 [PubMed]

CONCLUSIONS Tumor location may have an impact on the survival outcomes of patients with LASC. Patients with LASC located in a peripheral site had better survival outcomes than patients with LASC located in the main bronchus, particularly in female patients and AJCC stage I patients.
