To determine amongst siblings of colorectal cancer patients:1. The knowledge, perception and barriers towards screening colonoscopy. 2. The current screening colonoscopy adoption rate. 3. ...
This is a multicenter, controlled, randomized phase III study to compare participation rate with two screening rounds of FIT versus one-time screening colonoscopy in FDR of patients diagno...
Patient age 45 year old and above who presented with rectal bleeding at three tertiary hospitals in South West Nigeria were invited for colonoscopy. The clinical information of the patient...
Colorectal cancer (CRC) is the second most common cancer and the fourth leading cause of cancer death in Korea. Colonoscopy with polypectomy decreases the incidence and mortality from colo...
Colorectal cancer is a preventable and/or a treatable cancer, but at least 43% of the United States population is not up-to-date with screening. Although 90% of colorectal cancer screening...
According to international guidelines, patients presenting with acute diverticulitis are offered lower endoscopy to rule out colorectal cancer. This practice is based on weak evidence. Recent studies ...
Single-vial fecal immunochemical testing (FIT) is an accepted method of colorectal cancer (CRC) screening. The available 3-vial FIT data set allows for comparison of colonoscopy results using various ...
This report details the cost effectiveness of a non-nurse patient navigation (PN) program that was implemented at the University of Chicago Medical Center to increase colonoscopy-based colorectal canc...
Screening is an effective means for colorectal cancer prevention and early detection. Family history is strongly associated with colorectal cancer risk. We describe the rationale, evidence and recomme...
Purpose/Aim of the study: The main purpose of the colonoscopy is screening for colorectal cancers and diagnosis of colorectal disease The cost-effectiveness of colonoscopy directly depend on the adequ...
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.
Nuclear phosphoprotein encoded by the p53 gene (GENES, P53) whose normal function is to control CELL PROLIFERATION and APOPTOSIS. A mutant or absent p53 protein has been found in LEUKEMIA; OSTEOSARCOMA; LUNG CANCER; and COLORECTAL CANCER.
