Research output: Contribution to journalAbstractpeer-review


Background: Colonic microbiota can influence and modulate the colonic neoplastic process. The microbiota also affect colonic carbohydrate expression, which itself is altered by the neoplastic process. Despite their importance, very few studies have addressed the composition of mucosally associated bacteria and their relationship to carbohydrate expression in the healthy and diseased human colon.
