Probiotic-based therapy for Metastatic cancers: Probiotic Lactobacillus rhamnosus decreases the expression of metastasis promoters ZBTB2 and PPM1F, inhibits cell cycle progression, and suppresses migration, invasion, and metastasis of cancer cells, via up regulation of its target gene, 5/December/2018, 10.44 pm

Probiotic-based adjunctive therapy for Malaria: Probiotic Lactobacillus reuteri (DSM 17938 and ATCC PTA 5289) increases Ferroportin expression, decreases intracellular iron accumulation, inhibits cellular damage, prevents hemolysis, and inhibits malaria infection, via upregulation of its target gene, 5/December/2018, 9.35 pm

Hot water immersion therapy for lowering cholesterol, and triglycerides levels: Hot water immersion (at 39C for 1 hour) decreases the levels of HMGCR,  triglycerides, free cholesterol, and total cholesterol and prevents the progression of Non-alcoholic fatty liver disease (NAFLD), via up-regulation of its target gene, 6/December/2018, 3.09 pm

From Significance of the study to Public health relevance:

Given that: (i) each year nearly 14 million people are diagnosed with cancer globally, and little more than half of them will die; (ii) cancer deaths globally are expected to be doubled by 2030; (iii) most of the cancer patients die due to metastasis; (iv) cancer treatment causes the highest economic loss compared to all the known causes of death worldwide, there is an urgent need to find: (i) bio-molecules that drive metastatic process; and the way to prevent their expression; (ii) a way to activate immune system to combat cancer (Cancer immunotherapy); (ii) a cheaper alternative to the existing expensive anticancer drugs; (ii) a side-effect-free natural product-based drug; (iii) increase the therapeutic index of anticancer drugs; and (iv) a way to effectively treat and prevent metastatic progression and relapse of advanced/drug-resistant cancers.


Research findings to Therapeutic opportunity: 

A number of studies suggests that Probiotic Lactobacillus rhamnosus inhibits tumor cell proliferation. However, the mechanism of action is far from clear.

This study suggests that  Probiotic Lactobacillus rhamnosus, by increasing the expression of its target genes, it may decrease the expression of metastasis promoters ZBTB2 (Zinc Finger And BTB Domain Containing 2) and PPM1F (Protein Phosphatase, Mg2+/Mn2+ Dependent 1F-regulator of the actin cytoskeleton)  (fig. 1).

Figure 2. Probiotic Lactobacillus rhamnosus functions as an anti-metastatic agent

Thereby, it may: (a) decrease the expression of p53 negative regulator HDM2; (b) increase the expression of tumor suppressors ARF and p53 and its target genes; (c) inhibit cell cycle progression; and (d) suppress stress fiber formation, migration, invasion, and metastasis of cancer cells. Thus, pharmacological formulations encompassing “Lactobacillus rhamnosus, either alone or in combination with other anticancer drugs” may be used to inhibit the progression of invasive tumors.
