Conclusions: These results affirm that patients with OMCC have extended OS periods and that stereotactic body radiotherapy offers strong local control in these settings. We show that even in the oligometastatic setting those with right-sided primary tumors have worse outcomes relative to those with left-sided or rectal primary tumors. This suggests more aggressive treatment may be needed for those with oligometastatic right-sided colorectal cancer.

This study investigated the addition of celecoxib, a selective COX-2 inhibitor, to the irinotecan, 5-fluorouracil, and leucovorin (IFL) regimen for patients with previously untreated metastatic CRC. Patients and Methods: Forty-seven patients enrolled in this single-arm phase II study received celecoxib at 400 mg orally twice daily in combination with weekly irinotecan (125 mg/m2), 5-fluorouracil (500 mg/m2), and leucovorin (20 mg/m2) for 4 weeks every 6 weeks. The primary endpoint was response rate (RR) as measured by Response Evaluation Criteria in Solid Tumors. The protocol was amended midw...

Previously we described the association between serum Hsp70 levels and mortality of colorectal cancer. OBJECTIVE: In this new prospective study we aimed to confirm and extend our previous findings in a larger cohort of patients, based on a longer follow-up period. METHODS: Two hundred and thirty-two patients diagnosed with colorectal cancer were enrolled in the study...

Dante Labs sent me their Full DNA whole genome sequencing package, and I went through a roller-coaster of feelings: I was excited to know every secret of my cells, but I was afraid to get to know my hereditary cancer risks and worried what I might find. As in my case, (scientific) curiosity usually overrides fear, I jumped into the unknown and I’m eager to share my results here. Whole genome sequencing is available to anyone. So what? The human genome is the blueprint for building a person. When the Human Genome Project was completed in 2006, and the DNA double spiral uncovered its secrets for the very first time, sc...
