The performance of the microbiota is observed in all clinical and pathological stages of carcinogenesis, since its development, diagnosis and treatment, including prognosis and survival. However, it was found that there is a scarcity of studies on biliary microbiota and its relationship with hepatobiliopancreatic diseases. Therefore, further investigation is necessary, since reaching the biliary microbiota may suggest ways for studies of biomarkers, diagnoses, tests and therapies in hepatobiliopancreatic diseases. For this, bile samples will be collected in cases and controls patients to characterize the microbiota and its variations according to the disease.
