Researchers investigate association between gut microbiome and aggressive prostate cancer


“There's been a lot of evidence over the past few years that there's certainly a…correlation between dietary intake and risk of prostate cancer, [but] there's really not a whole lot of data on risk of development of lethal prostate cancer,” says Nima Sharifi, MD.

In this video, Nima Sharifi, MD, discusses findings from the recent study, “Gut microbiome-dependent metabolic pathways and risk of lethal prostate cancer: prospective analysis of a PLCO cancer screening trial cohort,” published in Cancer Epidemiology, Biomarkers & Prevention. Sharifi is director of Cleveland Clinic’s Genitourinary Malignancies Research Center.
