Bacteria plays an important role in maintaining homeostasis. The human microbiota can induce and prevent oncogenesis at the same time. Various genetically engineered salmonella (VNP20009, A1-R and ∆ppGpp) have been proven effective against cancer. Salmonella-mediated bacterial therapy has great potential due to their diversified mechanism of actions including the direct killing of cancer cells via inducing apoptosis and autophagy pathway; specifically targeting and accumulating in tumor; stimulating the immune system in the body and around the tumor; being used as a vector to deliver various anti-cancer agents; inhibiting angiogenesis; reducing drug resistance by reducing the abundance of p-glycoprotein; combining with and improving the efficacy of chemotherapy and radiotherapy. Two potential stabilization methods freeze-drying and foam drying of salmonella are described.
