Colorectal cancer (CRC) is one of the most common malignant tumors. There are many risk factors involved in CRC. According to recent findings, Fusobacterium nucleatum (F. nucleaum) are closely related to the progression of CRC. Studies have found that F. nucleaum may contribute to the development and prognosis of inflammation and CRC. The factors of the pathogenicity of F. nucleaum include its adhesion, its metabolite butyric acid, the cell factor of the host, and so on. Underlying mechanisms of F. nucleatum in CRC remain to be established.

Keywords: Colorectal cancer (CRC); Fusobacterium nucleatum; Pathogenicity; Adhesion; Butyric acid
