Computerized and Mailed Reminders in Increasing the Rate of Colorectal Cancer Screening in Adults With an Average Risk for Colorectal Cancer

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...

Effect of Mailed Invites of Choice of Colonoscopy or FIT vs. Mailed FIT Alone on Colorectal Cancer Screening

This is a pragmatic, randomized, controlled trial comparing whether a mailed outreach intervention offering patients who are not up-to-date with colorectal cancer (CRC) a choice of complet...

Reducing Colorectal Cancer Death Through Mailed Outreach Screening

The main study aim is to develop, implement and disseminate a pilot population-based mailed FIT outreach screening program in the Philadelphia VA Medical Center that does not rely on havin...

Serial SMS Reminders and an Opt-out Mailed FIT Kits to Improve Colorectal Screening Participation: A Single Center RCT

This pilot study is a 2-armed randomized controlled trial assessing the impact of a multimodal approach on colorectal cancer screening participation rates in a Federally Qualified Health C...

Choice Architecture and Colorectal Cancer Screening Outreach

This pilot study is a 3-arm randomized control trial assessing the effectiveness of sequential or active choice in CRC (colorectal cancer) screening outreach vs. colonoscopy outreach only,...

Comparative effectiveness of mailed reminders with and without fecal immunochemical tests for Medicaid beneficiaries at a large county health department: A randomized controlled trial.

Colorectal cancer (CRC) screening is effective but underused. Screening rates are lower among Medicaid beneficiaries versus other insured populations. No studies have examined mailed fecal immunochemi...

Interventions Promoting Colorectal Cancer Screening Among Latino Men: A Systematic Review.

Colorectal cancer, the second leading cause of cancer death in the United States, is also among the most preventable cancers. However, Latino men are less likely than non-Latino men to engage in preve...

Risk Factors and Adequate Management for Complications of Bevacizumab Treatment Requiring Surgical Intervention in Patients With Metastatic Colorectal Cancer.

Bevacizumab (BV) has been approved for treating colorectal cancer since 2004. Although BV use may lead to adverse effects, few studies have reported incidences requiring surgical intervention. We aime...

Understanding Cancer Worry Among Patients in a Community Clinic-Based Colorectal Cancer Screening Intervention Study.

To reduce colorectal cancer (CRC) screening disparities, it is important to understand correlates of different types of cancer worry among ethnically diverse individuals.

Physician Intervention and Chinese Americans' Colorectal Cancer Screening.

We conducted a cluster-randomized trial evaluating an intervention that trained Chinese-American primary care physicians to increase their Chinese patients' colorectal cancer (CRC) screening.

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.

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.
