EP2101 is a new cancer vaccine containing 10 different peptide antigens. The vaccine is designed to activate the immune system to develop a response against tumor cells in order to delay or prevent the recurrence of cancer. This study will test the safety and measure the level of immune stimulating capability of EP2101 in patients with Colon Cancer.

The purpose of this physician blinded, randomized study is to determine the utility, effectiveness, and feasibility of using colonic irrigation as a substitute for standard oral colonic pu...
The standard procedure for treating colonic cancer is changing from open surgery to laparoscopic surgery. Following open colonic surgery patients are fatigued and loss body mass and have a...
The general aim of the current study is to describe the effect of pregabalin on colonic and sensory functions in healthy individuals.
The purpose of this study is to determine wether D3 lymph node dissection gives superior oncological outcomes compared to standard D2 lymph node dissection in colon cancer
Colonic transendoscopic enteral tubing (TET) is a novel, safe, convenient, and reliable way for fecal microbiota transplantation (FMT) and the whole-colon enema treatment. The aim of this ...
Recovery after colonic surgery is invariably delayed by disturbed gut motility. It is commonly assumed that colonic motility becomes quiescent after surgery, but this hypothesis has not been evaluated...
Colonic ischemia is challenging to diagnose preoperatively. We present a patient with colonic ischemia, initially considered to have colonic obstruction. We review the history, physical findings, imag...
To study the efficacy of colonoscopic crush cytology as a convenient and near-accurate method to evaluate colonic neoplasms.
Monomeric green tea catechins (GTC) and oligomeric, oxidized black tea phenolics (BTP) have shown promising health benefits, although GTC has been more extensively studied than BTP. We review the curr...
Ingestion of poorly digested, fermentable carbohydrates (fermentable oligo-, di-, mono-saccharides and polyols; FODMAPs) have been implicated in exacerbating intestinal symptoms and the reduction of i...
Tumors or cancer of the COLON.
Inflammation of the COLONIC DIVERTICULA, generally with abscess formation and subsequent perforation.
Chronic or recurrent colonic disorders without an identifiable structural or biochemical explanation. The widely recognized IRRITABLE BOWEL SYNDROME falls into this category.
A pathological condition characterized by the presence of a number of COLONIC DIVERTICULA in the COLON. Its pathogenesis is multifactorial, including colon aging, motor dysfunction, increases in intraluminal pressure, and lack of dietary fibers.
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.
Cancer is not just one disease but many diseases. There are more than 100 different types of cancer. Most cancers are named for the organ or type of cell in which they start - for example, cancer that begins in the colon is called colon cancer; cancer th...
A vaccine is a biological preparation that improves immunity to a particular disease. A vaccine typically contains an agent that resembles a disease-causing microorganism, and is often made from weakened or killed forms of the microbe, its toxins or one ...
