This article provides a literature review of the disease-specific probiotic strains associated with cancer. The literature review was restricted to research in both humans and animals. This is not an exhaustive review. The table design allows for quick access to supportive data and will be helpful as a guide for both researchers and clinicians. The goal of the probiotics and disease series is to provide clinically useful tools. The first article part 1 focused on mental health and neurological conditions; the second article part 2 explored cultured and fermented foods that are commonly available in the United States; part 3 explored the relationship between bacterial strains and 2 of the most prevalent diseases we have in modern society: cardiometabolic disease and fatigue syndromes; part 4 elucidated the role of the microbiome in infectious diseases; part 5 explored respiratory conditions of the ears, nose, and throat; part 6 explored the relationship between microbiota and skin disorders; part 7 reviewed allergy and autoimmune disease; and part 8 examined gastrointestinal and genitourinary conditions. This ninth article reviews the relationship between microbiota and cancer development and prognosis. This literature review is specific to disease condition, probiotic classification, and individual strain.
