Liver Cancer-Gut Microbiome work profiled by Synthesis

The work by Dr. Yvonne Wan with Dr. Carolyn Slupsky and Dr. Mills to examine the influence of the gut microbiome on the onset liver cancer was recently profiled by the UC Davis Comprehensive Cancer Center magazine Synthesis.   In this work the researchers will test if milk glycans and Bifidobacterium infantis can dampen inflammation and thereby lower incidence of liver cancer.
