Microbiology and Cancer Research

Microbiology has a great impact on many aspects of cancer research. Cancer is one of the major killers and effects the most. Generally, 10-20% of viruses are involved for the cause of cancer in human. Cancer remains one of the major challenges from the 21st century. Nowadays the increasing numbers of cases are not accompanied by adequate progress in therapy. Scientists has found new ways and directions like immunotherapy, including the use of specific types of microorganisms. This type of treatment is expected to stimulate the immune system of human body for the selective elimination of cancer cells. Microorganisms can be used in different ways, based on their specific properties, that is, toxin production, anaerobic lifestyle, or binding substances that can be delivered to a specific location (vectors). Also, the use of microbes for cancer treatment also has some disadvantages. Nevertheless, this kind of treatment can supplement conventional anticancer therapy, giving cancer patients a chance and hope of recovery.
