Why is this bacterium hiding in human tumors?
from The New York Times
A mysterious bacterium found in up to half of all colon tumors also travels with the cancer as it spreads, researchers reported. Whether the bacterium, called Fusobacterium nucleatum, actually plays a role in causing or spurring the growth of cancer is not known. But the new study, published in the journal Science, also shows that an antibiotic that squelches this organism slows the growth of cancer cells in mice.
