Shared Notes


  • [1.2
    - Propionibacterium acnes is the most predominant bacteria found and its presence is significantly associated with prostate tissue inflammation.
    - Escherichia and also Propionibacterium acnes has the highest relative abundance.
  • [1.3
    - Androgen deprivation (Abiraterone acetate ) therapy depletes androgen-utilizing Corynebacterium in prostate cancer patients and that oral AA further enriches for the health-associated commensal, Akkermansia muciniphila.
    - Functional inferencing elucidates a coinciding increase in bacterial biosynthesis of vitamin K2 (an inhibitor of androgen dependent and independent tumor growth)
