Data from a prior phase I study of MM-151 supports further clinical e...
(American Gastroenterological Association) It is critically important that colorectal cancer patients undergo colonoscopy after surgery to ensure that they do not have a second colon cancer, and to find and remove any additional polyps. According to new recommendations from the U.S. Multi-Society Task Force on Colorectal Cancer, the evidence shows that post-operative colonoscopy is associated with...
Merrimack Pharmaceuticals, along with Baxalta, has begun a Phase l clinical trial of MM-151 in combination with onivyde (irinotecan liposome injection), fluorouracil (5-FU) and leucovorin to treat RAS wild-type, metastatic, colorectal cancer patients…
After several years of exciting developments in colorectal cancer research and therapy, progress continued throughout 2015. The FDA approved a new drug to treat colorectal cancer, and much research has been done with combination therapies and protocols for treatment. Of great importance, research shows that when colorectal cancer is detected during a screening colonoscopy, patients […] The p...
Merrimack Pharmaceuticals and Baxalta jointly announced the initiation of a Phase I clinical study of Merrimack's oligoclonal EGFR (epidermal growth factor receptor) inhibitor, MM-151, in combination with ONIVYDE® (irinotecan liposome injection) plus fluorouracil (5-FU) and leucovorin in patients with RAS wild-type metastatic colorectal cancer.
(University of Missouri-Columbia) Colorectal cancer is the third most common form of cancer and the second most common cause of cancer deaths in the United States. The chance of developing colorectal cancer increases with age. Now, a study by University of Missouri School of Medicine researchers shows that minority and ethnic groups are being diagnosed with colorectal cancer at younger ages and mo...
A small molecule drug combined with chemotherapy may deliver a synergistic benefit for colorectal cancer patients, new research suggests. has demonstrated the efficiency of a small molecule drug, PRIMA-1met, in inhibiting the growth of colorectal cancer cells. Colorectal cancer is the cancer of the large intestine (colon and rectum).
Variant alleles in factor V, prothrombin, plasminogen activator inhibitor-1, methylenetetrahydrofolate reductase and risk of thromboembolism in metastatic colorectal cancer patients treated with first-line chemotherapy plus bevacizumab
Population-based screening is effective in reducing the burden of colorectal cancer, and organised screening programmes have been implemented in many European countries.1 Maximum participation in screening is crucial to achieve the greatest health benefits at population level. As with most cancer screening programmes, however, there is a gradient in uptake of colorectal cancer screening by socioec...
The All Wales Medicines Strategy Group has recommended Merck’s Erbitux in combination with chemotherapy for restricted use in the NHS in Wales. Erbitux (cetuximab) is recommended for the first-line treatment of patients with RAS wild-type metastatic colorectal cancer. Its full indication is with epidermal growth factor receptor (EGFR)-expressing, RAS wild-type metastatic colorectal cancer in com...
While increased screening continues to drive down overall colorectal cancer rates, the rate of colorectal cancer in patients under age 50 is increasing, and the disease is commonly more aggressive in these young patients. A University of Colorado Cancer...

An emerging cancer therapy has colorectal tumors surrounded. Presenters at the 2016 Annual Meeting of the Society of Nuclear Medicine and Molecular Imaging (SNMMI) are unveiling a novel radioimmunotherapy that combines a cancer-seeking antibody with potent radionuclide agents, resulting in complete remission of colorectal cancer in mouse models.
The United States Food and Drug Administration (FDA) has approved Epi proColon®, a test that screens for colorectal cancer from a simple blood draw. The approval specifies that EPI proColon is only indicated for individuals at an average risk of developing colorectal cancer who choose not to undergo other colorectal cancer screening methods specified in […] The post EPI proColon® – N...
University of Missouri School of Medicine researchers discovered that a cancer-suppressing gene called Sprouty2 may induce the growth of certain forms of colorectal cancer. It was previously shown that the gene has a protective role against tumor metastasis in the body, according to the university’s press release.
Microbiota profiles associated with colorectal cancer were found to be different from those in individuals without colorectal cancer in a recent study. Moreover, bacterial clusters associated with colorectal cancer were found to be differentially correlated with mucosal gene-expression profiles. “The heterogeneity of the CRC-associated microbiota identified could be exploited as a screening tool...
UNC Lineberger Comprehensive Cancer Center researchers have discovered that a deficiency in a key protein that regulates immune system warning signals could be a new biomarker for colorectal cancer, the second largest cancer killer in the United States. They believe the marker could be used to gauge response to a potential new treatment for the disease.Read more about Researchers Discover Colorect...
Colorectal cancer is the second leading cause of death from cancer in the United States, after lung cancer, yet many Americans are still loathe to be screened for the disease.
A study led by researchers from the Cancer Science Institute of Singapore (CSI Singapore) at the National University of Singapore (NUS) has demonstrated the efficiency of a small molecule drug, PRIMA-1met, in inhibiting the growth of colorectal cancer cells. Colorectal cancer is the cancer of the large intestine (colon and rectum) and is the most common cancer in Singapore.

(University of Missouri-Columbia) A gene that is known to suppress the growth and spread of many types of cancer has the opposite effect in some forms of colorectal cancer, University of Missouri School of Medicine researchers have found. It is a finding that may lay the foundation for new colorectal cancer treatments.
The prevalence and incidence of colorectal cancer among patients with inflammatory bowel disease is less than 3% after colectomy and less than 1% after ileal pouch-anal anastomosis, according to the results of a systematic review and meta-analysis.The researchers also identified residual rectum and history of colorectal cancer as risk factors for post-colectomy cancer risk.
In colorectal cancer, the presence of invasive tumor cells at the advancing edge of the tumor can provide valuable information on prognosis. Initiated by the Colorectal Cancer Research Group at the Institute of Pathology, University of Bern, a consensus conference was held to determine how this phenomenon should best be put into practice.
To carry out their study, researchers at the University of Southern California (USC) looked at a group of 5,145 participants with colorectal cancer, and a further 4,097 participants without colorectal cancer as a control group. Data on coffee consumption was collected by interview and
