Determinants of Early Mortality Among 37,568 Patients With Colon Cancer Who Participated in 25 Clinical Trials From the Adjuvant Colon Cancer Endpoints Database Gastrointestinal Cancer

Conclusion Early mortality was infrequent but more prevalent in patients with advanced age and a PS of ≥ 2, underscoring the need to carefully consider the risk-to-benefit ratio when making treatment decisions in these subgroups.

Chemotherapeutic agents variously induce inflammatory responses, metabolic disorders and associated gene expression changes, all of which have the capacity to impact sensory function . Early evidence of independent effects by cancer alone ...

This study identified multiple factors associated with failure of locally advanced colon cancer (LACC) patients to receive standard of care, particularly adjuvant chemotherapy, suggesting the need to focus on improving adjuvant chemotherapy compliance in specific populations. Non-adherence to LACC standard of care is likely a major contributor to persistently high mortality rates in Kentucky.

CONCLUSIONS: A DNA repair gene score may predict patients likely to have poor response to chemoradiation. This score may be a relevant tool to be investigated in future studies focused on chemoradiation used in the context of organ preservation.

This study aimed to quantify and compare the risks of venous thromboembolism before surgery, after surgery, during adjuvant chemotherapy, and up to 365 days after surgery among patients with resected colon cancer. DESIGN: This is a population-based retrospective cohort study. SETTING: This study was conducted in a single-payer, universal health care setting (Ontario) between 2002 and 2008. PATIENTS: A total of 6806 patients with stage I to III colon cancer treated with surgical resection were included. INTERVENTIONS: Phases of treatment were evaluated, including preoperative, in-hospital, postoperative, during ...

acute;ri Z, Bai P Abstract Microbes, which live in the human body, affect a large set of pathophysiological processes. Changes in the composition and proportion of the microbiome are associated with metabolic diseases (Fulbright et al., PLoS Pathog 13:e1006480, 2017; Maruvada et al., Cell Host Microbe 22:589-599, 2017), psychiatric disorders (Macfabe, Glob Adv Health Med 2:52-66, 2013; Kundu et al., Cell 171:1481-1493, 2017), and neoplastic diseases (Plottel and Blaser, Cell Host Microbe 10:324-335, 2011; Schwabe and Jobin, Nat Rev Cancer 13:800-812, 2013; Zitvogel et al., Cell 165:276-287, 2016).

This study aimed to evaluate the association between nutritional risk screening (NRS) score and administration of adjuvant chemotherapy for stage III colon cancer.MethodsA total of 404 patients with stage III colon cancer who underwent curative resection between January 2012 and December 2015 were included. Patients with a preoperative high nutritional risk score (NRS ≥4) were compared with those with an NRS

Authors: Cammarota F, Conte A, Aversano A, Muto P, Ametrano G, Riccio P, Turano M, Valente V, Delrio P, Izzo P, Pierantoni GM, De Rosa M Abstract Colorectal cancer (CRC) is the third most prevalent type of cancer worldwide. It is also the second most common cause of cancer‑associated mortality; it accounted for about 9.2% of all cancer deaths in 2018, most of which were due to resistance to therapy. The main treatment for CRC is surgery, generally associated with chemotherapy, radiation therapy and combination therapy. However, while chemo‑radiotherapy kills differentiated cancer cells, mesenchymal stem‑like ...

te;nez Macarena Peran Luis J. Martínez-González Coral del Val Igor Zwir Juan Antonio Marchal María Ángel García Colorectal cancer treatment has advanced over the past decade. The drug 5-fluorouracil is still used with a wide percentage of patients who do not respond. Therefore, a challenge is the identification of predictive biomarkers. The protein kinase R (PKR also called EIF2AK2) and its regulator, the non-coding pre-mir-nc886, have multiple effects on cells in response to numerous types of stress, including chemotherapy. In this work, we performed an ambispective study...
