The purpose of this research is to understand if an educational program about colorectal cancer helps improve people's knowledge of colorectal cancer prevention and screening and their int...
RATIONALE: Chemoprevention is the use of certain drugs to keep cancer from forming. The use of curcumin may prevent or treat colorectal cancer. PURPOSE: This phase I trial is studying the...
RATIONALE: Chemoprevention is the use of certain drugs to keep cancer from forming. The use of aspirin may prevent colorectal cancer. PURPOSE: This randomized phase II trial is studying h...
The purpose of this study is to determine if a prototype colorectal cancer screening program with the services of a cancer prevention specialist will increase utilization of appropriate co...
This study aims to determine whether a breath test could be used for early detection of colorectal cancer and colorectal polyps. Patients who are attending for a planned colonoscopy or wh...
Colorectal cancer is one of the most common cancers globally. A large portion of colorectal cancer patients who are treated with conventional chemotherapy eventually develop local recurrence or metast...
We are reporting a rare case of MUTYH-associated polyposis, a colorectal cancer hereditary syndrome, diagnosticated after an intussusception. Colorectal cancer is an important cause of cancer related ...
Reportedly, green tea has a preventive effect against colorectal cancer in animal models. Nevertheless, results from epidemiological studies of the association between green tea consumption and colore...
Tumor metastasis is a major cause of colorectal cancer-related deaths. The liver is a common site of colorectal cancer metastasis. There is no effective treatment for patients with colorectal cancer w...
In previous studies, dysregulated lncRNAs in colorectal cancer were screened using RNA-sequencing by Atsushi Yamada. In these dysregulated lncRNAs, a long non coding RNA named CA3-AS1 attracted our at...
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.
