Featured Article: The role of Tannerella forsythia and Porphyromonas gingivalis in pathogenesis of esophageal cancer
Esophageal cancer is increasingly becoming a global problem. Research has found how different bacterial species can increase the risk of esophageal cancer. Tannerella forsythia and Porphyromonas gingivalis are both species of anaerobic, Gram-negative bacteria which are known causative agents of a wide range of periodontal diseases; their presence however has now also been linked to an increased risk of esophageal cancer. In this review, B. Malinowski et al. discuss the role of Tannerella forsythia and Porphyromonas gingivalis in the pathogenesis of esophageal cancer.
