From: Biomarkers for predicting efficacy of PD-1/PD-L1 inhibitors

Bacteria Main effect on immunity Prediction of treatment effect Model Ref.
A. muciniphila Increased recruitment of CCR9+CXCR3+CD4+ T cells into tumor bed Effective anti-tumor response Mouse/Human [89]
E. hirae Increased IL-12 secreted by DC Effective anti-tumor response Mouse/Human [89]
E. faeciumC. aerofaciens
B. adolescentisK. pneumoniae
V. parvulaP. merdae
Lactobacillus sp. B. longum
Increased neoantigen specific CD8+ T cell and decreased Fox3P+CD4+ Treg in tumor microenvironment Effective anti-tumor response Mouse/Human [134]
Bifidobacterium Increased IFN-γ production and major histocompatibility complex Class IIhi DC Effective anti-tumor response Mouse [87]
Faecalibacterium Increased peripheral effector CD4+ and CD8+ T cell Effective anti-tumor response Mouse/Human [88]
Bacteroidales Increased peripheral Treg and myeloid derived suppressor cell Poor anti-tumor response Mouse/Human [88]
