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...

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...
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...
Colorectal cancer is the development of cancer from the colon or rectum, due to the abnormal growth of cells that have the ability to invade or spread to other parts of the body. Signs and symptoms may include blood in the stool, a change in bowel movements, weight loss, and feeling tired all the time. Up to 15% of colorectal
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.
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.
A new scientific study has identified why colorectal cancer cells depend on a specific nutrient, and a way to starve them of it. Over one million men and women are living with colorectal cancer in the United States. The National Cancer Institute estimates 4.5% of all men and women will be diagnosed with the cancer during their lifetime, making it the third most common non-skin cancer.
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
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.
