Bile acid metabolizing bacteria are also responsible for the extrathymic generation of regulatory T-cells, the rate limiting factors in the control of colon inflammation. Deregulation of inflammation involves epigenetic and gene expression changes that take place in gut infiltrating regulating T-cells. Understanding the interface of gut microbiota and Treg function in the gut will critically help in designing effective preventive and therapeutic strategies. Join these experts as they present in detail on: • Treg diversity and function in colon cancer • Molecular pathways that regulate Treg functions and Treg/Th17 balance • Microbial sulfur metabolism and colorectal cancer risk • Genetics of bile acid metabolism and colorectal cancer risk Main Conference - Jun 24 - 25, 2019
