The indication of Cyramza (ramucirumab; Eli Lilly), in combination with FOLFIRI (irinotecan, folinic acid, and 5‑fluorouracil), has been extended to include the treatment of adult patients with metastatic colorectal cancer with disease progression on or after prior therapy with bevacizumab, oxaliplatin and a fluoropyrimidine. In addition, Cyramza in combination with docetaxel is also indicated ...
(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...
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...
(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...
The Fall 2015 issue of Cancer Today, a publication of the American Association for Cancer Research (AACR), features "Colorectal Cancer: A Troubling Trend." Colorectal cancer diagnoses are on the rise among adults under age 50, lower than the recommended age to begin regular screening. Published quarterly by the AACR, Cancer Today is an authoritative resource for cancer patients, survivors, ...
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...
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...
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.
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...
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.
Preoperative bevacizumab may predominantly benefit breast cancer patients with a high baseline microvessel density, according to a new study.
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 a little over the past year, several clinical trials have evaluated new drugs in patients with metastatic colorectal cancer and gastric cancer. Furthermore, genomics studies that attempted to unravel the molecular characteristics of colorectal and gastric cancer were published in 2015. The results of these endeavours will influence clinical practice in 2016 and beyond.
(University of Texas M. D. Anderson Cancer Center) Cetuximab, marketed as Erbitux, is one of the key therapies for metastatic colorectal cancer. Yet the cancer still returns in some patients, shortening overall survival.
Researchers report that they have found markedly low levels of the protein NLRX1 in multiple laboratory models of colorectal cancer, and in samples of human tissue. Studies have shown that the protein is known to be involved in regulating immune system signals in order to prevent hyperactive inflammatory responses by the immune system, but now researchers believe their finding also points to a rol...
According to the International Agency for Research on Cancer (IARC), eating processed meat products can increase a person’s risk for developing colorectal cancer.
