Sir — We thank Laverty et al. for their correspondence and congratulations in response to our work.1 Please accept our apologies for the discrepancy in polyp categorisation. The revised polyp data in line with National Bowel Cancer Screening programme, the European Society of Gastrointestinal and Abd ominal Radiology (ESGAR) consensus guidelines2 and other published studies is as follows3,4: the total polyp detection rate was 13.5% (241 polyps) in 170 patients; 153 (63.5%) polyps were ≥10 mm in size compared to 88 (36.5%) measuring between 6–9 mm.

All subjects gave written informed consent for participation and publication. Results and Discussion TGF-β signaling in NK cells is associated with: phosphorylation in SMAD2 and 3, inhibition of IL-15-induced metabolism/proliferation, simultaneous downregulation of CD44, CD49e, and Eomes, and upregulation of CD16 and CD49a expression (7, 10). SMAD family member 4 (SMAD4) belongs to the SMAD family of transcription...

(CNN) — Eating even a moderate amount of red or processed meat is linked with an increased risk of colorectal (bowel) cancer, according to a new study published Wednesday. People who ate 76 grams of red and processed meat per day — that’s in line with current guidelines and roughly the same as a quarter-pound beef burger –– had a 20% higher chance of developing colorectal cancer compared to others, who ate about 21 grams a day, the equivalent to one slice of ham, according to the research. The study also found that processed meat, like sausages or bacon, posed a bigger risk than red meat, with...

Sentinel lymph node mapping (SLNM) may play a significant role in future delivery of colon cancer surgery because of an increase in early-stage, node-negative disease due to national bowel cancer screening programmes. Traditionally, colon lymphatic drainage has not been thought relevant as the operative approach cannot be tailored. Recent advances in local and endoscopic risk-reducing interventions for colonic malignancy have caused a rethink in approach. SLNM was initially attempted with blue dye techniques with limited success. Technological improvement has allowed surgeons to use near-infrared (NIR) light and NIR active...

Conclusion: Participants experience changes in day-to-day life after cancer treatment. Social networks and the participants’ own coping strategies are key to shaping everyday life after treatment. Implication for Practice: It is crucial that healthcare professionals have a holistic view of patients. Both partners and physical activity were identified as an integral part of coping. Seniors are often less active, and some have lost their spouses, it is therefore especially important to examine this demographic. A survey before and after treatment can help optimize rehabilitation.

The objective of our study was to review our experience of PE in terms of surgical characteristics, complications, and overall survival. All patients who had PE surgery between January 1999 and December 2015 were identified. Patients with verified distant metastatic disease were excluded. Patients with advanced pelvic tumors experiencing incapacitating postradiation severe damages were included. The following parameters were recorded: age, sex, indication for surgery, tumor histology, type of exenteration, urinary tract and colon reconstruction methods, operative time, blood transfusion, intensive care unit admissions, len...

Endosc Int Open 2018; 06: E872-E877 DOI: 10.1055/a-0591-9308 Background and study aims UK Bowel Cancer Screening flexible sigmoidoscopy (BowelScope) currently offers patients aged 55 a one-off flexible sigmoidoscopy for adenoma clearance to decrease colorectal cancer incidence by interrupting the adenoma-carcinoma sequence. Recent evidence has shown maximum benefit in increasing adenoma detection rate (ADR) using the Endocuff Vision device in the left side of the colon and in screening patients. Currently, ADR is low and shows unacceptable variation in BowelScope. ADR is a quality indicator in screening sigmoidosco...
