Brief description Antibiotics and proton pump inhibitors (PPIs) affect gut bacteria health. Gut bacteria are involved in the function of the immune system and potentially the effectiveness of immunotherapies. However, the impact of antibiotics and PPIs on the efficacy of immunotherapies is unknown. Newly available big data will be used to determine the impacts of antibiotics and PPIs on immunotherapy efficacy, informing on the best cancer treatments to use in patients who require antibiotics or PPIs.
