Study on Aspirin Versus Placebo in Resected Colon Cancer With PI3K Mutation Stage III or II High Risk

2016-10-27 05:38:23 | BioPortfolio

Summary

Four retrospective studies were recently published on efficacy of aspirin in patients with surgically resected colon cancer. Two of these studies strongly suggested that aspirin used in low doses (100 mg/d) after surgical resection of colorectal cancer with PI3K mutation could act as a targeted therapy with a major protective effect on the risk of recurrence. The other two studies did not confirm the benefit of aspirin in this situation. These four retrospective studies provide an insufficient level of evidence to demonstrate the benefit of low-dose aspirin as adjuvant to surgery for colorectal cancer. Therefore, it is necessary as recommended in the conclusion of these studies and meta-analyses to perform a randomised prospective study to validate these data.

Medical and Biotech [MESH] Definitions

By adjusting the quantity and quality of food intake to improve health status of an individual. This term does not include the methods of food intake (NUTRITIONAL SUPPORT).

The lack of sufficient energy or protein to meet the body's metabolic demands, as a result of either an inadequate dietary intake of protein, intake of poor quality dietary protein, increased demands due to disease, or increased nutrient losses.

Surgical procedure in which the STOMACH is transected high on the body. The resulting small proximal gastric pouch is joined to any parts of the SMALL INTESTINE by an end-to-side SURGICAL ANASTOMOSIS, depending on the amounts of intestinal surface being bypasses. This procedure is used frequently in the treatment of MORBID OBESITY by limiting the size of functional STOMACH, food intake, and food absorption.

A non-steroidal anti-inflammatory agent that is less effective than equal doses of ASPIRIN in relieving pain and reducing fever. However, individuals who are hypersensitive to ASPIRIN may tolerate sodium salicylate. In general, this salicylate produces the same adverse reactions as ASPIRIN, but there is less occult gastrointestinal bleeding. (From AMA Drug Evaluations Annual, 1992, p120)

Asthmatic adverse reaction (e.g., BRONCHOCONSTRICTION) to conventional NSAIDS including aspirin use.
