Multi-omics in Colon Cancer and Role of the Microbiome

Souhaila Al Khodor 2Dr. Souhaila Al Khodor from Sidra Medicine, Qatar will join the Targeting Microbiota 2023 congress to talk about: "Multi-omics in Colon Cancer and Role of the Microbiome".

This study consisted of 348 treatment-naïve patients with colon cancer that were profiled using various omics including 16S rRNA gene sequencing and complemented with tumor whole-genome sequencing for further microbiome analysis. Dr. Al Khodor and her team characterized the immune-microbiota interactions in those patients and identified microbial signatures predictive of overall survival.

They identified a microbiome signature, driven by Ruminococcus bromii, that was associated with a favorable outcome. This study is a step forward toward implementing microbiota-targeting approaches, such as dietary intervention in the adjuvant or neoadjuvant setting.

Join Targeting Microbiota 2023 to learn more about Dr. Khodor's talk.
