NCCN Post-Treatment Surveillance of Colorectal Cancer Following Curative Resection

2015-08-05 16:38:23 | BioPortfolio

Summary

OBJECTIVES:

1. The primary study objective is to evaluate the effectiveness of cancer surveillance testing following curative resection for patients diagnosed with colorectal cancer.

2. To identify subgroups of patients at risk for recurrence.

3. To evaluate the factors associated with the receipt of treatment and the treatments received for recurrence.

Description

Clinical patient data has been previously collected from the existing NCCN colorectal cancer database. The variables in this limited dataset include demographics, comorbidities and tumor factors, and patient follow up. The data were collected between 2005 and 2011. The NCCN database contains detailed information about how often the surveillance practices (i.e. imaging) were performed, the results of these tests, and if additional testing or procedures were performed to confirm the findings. It is estimated that 5000 eligible subjects will be included in the analysis.

Medical and Biotech [MESH] Definitions

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.

Systematic gathering of data for a particular purpose from various sources, including questionnaires, interviews, observation, existing records, and electronic devices. The process is usually preliminary to statistical analysis of the data.
