Colorectal cancer (CRC) develops as a consequence of inherited multiple low-risk variants in concurrence of environmental factors. Nutrition and intestinal microbiota exert an effect on DNA damage accumulation and its repair (maintaining universal genomic stability and preserves cellular functions), intestinal metabolism, immunological activity and substantially affect the efficacy of chemotherapy. Integrated studies should unveil in humans the role of A) Taste perception, intestinal microbiota, DNA damage and repair in CRC risk (CRC patients vs. control individuals); B) Intestinal microbiota, DNA damage and repair as prognostic markers of CRC progression, treatment efficacy and survival. Monitoring of taste perception and intestinal microenvironment with simultaneous determinations of DNA damage response and repair in cancer patients represent substantial novel contribution. Our project further aims to integrate above parameters into the prognostic and therapeutical considerations, which ultimately result in individually tailored therapy and improved quality of the life.
