The gut microbiota and its relationship to cancer development/treatment have been extensively studied over the past few years. Probiotics can increase and decrease the production of anti-inflammatory cytokines, which play an important role in preventing carcinogenesis. They also play an important role in activating phagocytes to abolish early-stage cancer cells. Probiotics, including Lactobacillus, have been shown to have tumor suppressive effects in colorectal cancer cell lines and mouse tumor models. Currently, there is a growing interest in NGPs as therapeutic agents that alter gut microbiota and impact cancer development. F. prausnitzii, A. muciniphila, B. fragilis and belong to the NGPs group and can be useful in cancer patients through several mechanisms.

Bacterial cell-free culture supernatants of probiotics trains have also been tested for preventing colonic cancer cell invasion in vitro. Strains showing in vitro inhibitory activity on tumor cell proliferation, induction of apoptotic cell death, and ability of cellular sphingolipids metabolism, have been recognized as promising candidates for cancer prevention.
Peripheral blood is the accessible resource of human normal cells which can be used to assess the toxicity of extracts. About 1×105 mononucleate cells were injected into every single well of the 96-well microtiter plate. The cells were given two treatments: one with and one without serial dilutions of extracts.
For the determination of the anticancer activity of the tested LAB supernatants, four different types of human cancer cell lines were used, and their growth inhibitory effects were assessed using an MTT assay.
The anti-cancer mechanism of the most active anti-cancer lactic acid bacteria supernatant was examined by staining apoptotic and necrotic cells with dual nuclear fluorescent dyes (annexin V and PI), respectively.
