Chronical intestinal inflammation provoked by dysbiosis in genetically susceptible individuals is an important factor related to carcinogenesis. One of mechanism of normal gut microbiota formation is fucosecontained oligosaccharides of mother's milk and gut mucins which are a feed for bacterial symbionts and a part of innate immunity. Source of fucose-contained polysaccharides in food could be the kelp. These polysaccharides could be prebiotic for bifido- and lactobacteria, the group of bacteria whose quantity is reduced during the development of inflammatory bowel disease and colorectal cancer. The Russian company NATIV and German VivaCell Biotechnology GmbH together under a project supported by FASIE and BMBF, engaged in the development of functional food - beverages from Fucus algae for the prevention of colorectal cancer. NATIV Ltd. is developing of their production technology, while VivaCell Biotechnology GmbH is examining on the safety of food components and evaluation of their anti inflammatory properties.
