Despite significant progress in our understanding of the etiology, biology and genetics of colorectal cancer, as well as important clinical advances, it remains the third most frequently diagnosed can...
Reportedly, green tea has a preventive effect against colorectal cancer in animal models. Nevertheless, results from epidemiological studies of the association between green tea consumption and colore...
The association between physical activity (PA) and colorectal cancer (CRC) patients' survival is inconsistent. We conducted a systematic review and meta-analysis to summarize published articles on thi...
Colorectal cancer is the third most common cause of cancer deaths in the United States and advanced colorectal polyps are a major risk factor. Although there are no large-scale individual trials desig...
Having a first-degree relative (FDR) with colorectal cancer (CRC) is a significant risk factor for CRC. Counseling for FDRs regarding CRC risk factors and personalized risk is important to improve kno...
RATIONALE: Chemoprevention is the use of certain drugs to keep cancer from forming. The use of aspirin may prevent colorectal cancer. PURPOSE: This randomized phase II trial is studying h...
RATIONALE: Screening may help doctors find colorectal cancer sooner, when it may be easier to treat. Computerized and mailed reminders may help increase the rate of colorectal cancer scree...
This study is designed to examine the impact of telephone-based colorectal cancer risk assessment on colorectal screening attitudes and behavior among previously unscreened adults ages 50 ...
RATIONALE: Evaluating the knowledge and attitudes of healthy participants toward a new diet and gene test for colorectal cancer risk may help doctors improve acceptance of colorectal cance...
This prospective, multi-center, observational study will investigate the effectiveness and safety of Avastin (bevacizumab) in routine clinical practice in patients with metastatic colorect...
Tumors or cancer of the COLON or the RECTUM or both. Risk factors for colorectal cancer include chronic ULCERATIVE COLITIS; FAMILIAL POLYPOSIS COLI; exposure to ASBESTOS; and irradiation of the CERVIX UTERI.
Tumor suppressor genes located in the 5q21 region on the long arm of human chromosome 5. The mutation of these genes is associated with the formation of colorectal cancer (MCC stands for mutated in colorectal cancer).
Tumor suppressor genes located in the 18q21-qter region of human chromosome 18. The absence of these genes is associated with the formation of colorectal cancer (DCC stands for deleted in colorectal cancer). The products of these genes show significant homology to neural cell adhesion molecules and other related cell surface glycoproteins.
A group of autosomal-dominant inherited diseases in which COLON CANCER arises in discrete adenomas. Unlike FAMILIAL POLYPOSIS COLI with hundreds of polyps, hereditary nonpolyposis colorectal neoplasms occur much later, in the fourth and fifth decades. HNPCC has been associated with germline mutations in mismatch repair (MMR) genes. It has been subdivided into Lynch syndrome I or site-specific colonic cancer, and LYNCH SYNDROME II which includes extracolonic cancer.
