Brief Summary:
The purpose of the study is to determine if probiotic bacteria have a beneficial effect on the colon cancer-associated microbiota and epigenetic alterations in colon cancer. Dietary supplementation consists of two ProBion Clinica tablets, yielding a daily dose of 1.4 x 10 ˄ 10 Bifidobacterium lactis Bl-04 (ATCC SD5219), 7x10 ˄ 9 Lactobacillus acidophilus NCFM (ATCC 700396), and 0.63 g inulin.

Arm Intervention/treatment
Experimental: ProBion Clinica
Probiotic tablets yielding a daily dose of 1.4 x 10 ˄ 10 Bifidobacterium lactis Bl-04 (ATCC SD5219), 7x10 ˄ 9 Lactobacillus acidophilus NCFM (ATCC 700396), and 0.63 g inulin.
Dietary Supplement: ProBion Clinica
No Intervention: Control



Primary Outcome Measures :
  1. Changes in microbiota composition after probiotics use [ Time Frame: 8-78 days depending on time elapsed from inclusion to surgical removal of tumor ]
    The microbiota composition is analysed at baseline and after probiotics use in tissue and faeces samples


Secondary Outcome Measures :
  1. Epigenetic changes after probiotics use [ Time Frame: 8-78 days depending on time elapsed from inclusion to surgical removal of tumor ]
    DNA methylation levels are analysed at baseline and after probiotics use in tissue samples
