This randomized clinical trial compares the effect of adding bevacizumab vs cetuximab to standard chemotherapy regimens on overall survival among patients with advanced or metastatic KRAS wild-type colorectal cancer.
In the United States in 2017, there are projected to be 135 430 individuals newly diagnosed with colorectal cancer and 50 260 deaths from the disease with 18% to 22% having distant metastatic diseases at the time of diagnosis. Over the past decade or more, significant effort has been devoted to optimize first-line treatment for advanced and metastatic colorectal cancer. It has been established...
n this review, we address specific issues pertaining to AYA patients with colorectal cancer, including evaluation for hereditary colorectal cancer syndromes, clinicopathologic and biologic features unique to AYA patients with colorectal cancer, treatment outcomes, and survivorship.
Survival was similar with either agent when combined with first-line chemotherapy.
Adding bevacizumab to perioperative chemotherapy failed to improve survival.
Adding bevacizumab to chemotherapy failed to improve 5-year overall survival.
The type of bacteria in your gut may help diagnose colorectal cancer. Researchers at Baylor College of Medicine and other institutions have identified specific types of bacteria that seem to be abundant in individuals with colorectal cancer.
What if your family's DNA could become the blueprint for your very own precise and personalized treatment for colorectal cancer? Or, better yet, what if it could be used to help doctors screen you earlier for the disease, before it has a chance to strike?
This video highlights results of a phase III randomized trial that tested chemotherapy plus bevacizumab in patients with recurrent or metastatic head and neck cancer.
Colorectal cancer is the second leading cause of cancer death for men and women in the United States according to the American Cancer Society.
Colorectal cancer is one of several cancers with known genetic risk factors. Because these known factors can be identified through genetic testing, it’s important to understand your risks and to discuss them with your healthcare provider. The following are three hereditary factors that can increase your risk for colorectal cancer: People with a personal or […] The post Genetic Factors and ...
Colorectal cancer (CRC) exemplifies the steady progress we’ve made in cancer prevention and treatment,…
To the Editor The comprehensive review by Dr Lieberman and colleagues addressed evolving issues in the field of colorectal cancer screening. However, I take issue with the brief discussion of serrated polyps and their effect on the practice of colorectal cancer screening.
Approximately 140,000 people are diagnosed with colorectal cancer in the U.S. each year. March is Colorectal Cancer Awareness Month.
Patients with colorectal cancer may be able to lower the risk of the disease worsening and improve their chances of survival with moderate daily exercise, according to new research by investigators at Dana-Farber Cancer Institute. The results of the research contradict the widespread belief that, because the prognosis for patients with metastatic cancer is often poor, […] The post Metastati...
A large body of research demonstrates that colorectal cancer screening is an effective method for reducing colorectal cancer mortality. Screening can detect cancer at an earlier stage, before it becomes symptomatic, and the detection and removal of adenomas can prevent cancer. Rates of colorectal cancer screening had increased until 2010, at which time approximately 60% of eligible US adults parti...
After years of declining rates of colorectal cancer (CRC), a study from the American Cancer Society raises the specter that not all is going as well as we would have hoped, especially among younger folks born since 1990. And that raises the question of what the future holds for this frequently preventable form of cancer, […]
About 95 percent of colorectal cancers are considered "microsatellite stable" and very few of these cancers respond to immunotherapy, meaning that the vast majority of metastatic colorectal cancer patients are unable to benefit from medicines that activate the immune system against the disease - a strategy that has helped dramatically extend the lives of patients with related cancers. A study pres...
Colorectal cancer is the third most common type of cancer in men and the second most common in women, with approximately 1.4 million new diagnoses in 2012. For the same period, approximately 694,000 deaths worldwide were attributed to colorectal cancer. Healthcare solutions provider Novartis is working with pharma company Bristol-Myers Squibb to investigate the safety, [&hellip
(University of Colorado Anschutz Medical Campus) Study presented at AACR 2017 describes a new 'humanized mouse' model of colorectal cancer, allowing researchers to test new drugs and new drug combinations against the disease and potentially opening the door to immunotherapy for the larger, microsatellite-stable population of colorectal cancer patients.
Adding bevacizumab to neoadjuvant chemotherapy did not improve complete macroscopic response rate or progression-free survival in women with ovarian cancer.
March is Colorectal Cancer Awareness Month, which the American Institute of Cancer Research is marking with a news release headlined “6 Steps to Prevent Nearly Half of Colorectal Cancer Cases.” The recommendations are said to be “research-based” but that term appears to be used loosely. Here’s why. What’s wrong with issuing sensible lifestyle recommendations? The […]
Weill Cornell Medicine and NewYork-Presbyterian have been named to the nonprofit Stand Up 2 Cancer’s Colorectal Dream Team to drive new advances in colorectal cancer research and treatment.
