In conclusion, the concept of an epigenetic clock is compelling, but caution should be taken in interpreting associations with age acceleration. Association tests of age acceleration should include age as a covariate.

(American Cancer Society) An Affordable Care Act provision that allowed young adults to be covered under their parents' insurance led to a shift to earlier-stage diagnosis and more timely receipt of adjuvant chemotherapy among young colorectal cancer patients, according to a new American Cancer Society study. The study appears in JNCI.

CONCLUSION: Molecular profiling of AYA CRC revealed different molecular characteristics in RT versus LT. Epigenetic mechanisms and alteration in DNA repair genes warrant further investigation and may be a promising treatment target for CRC in AYA. IMPLICATIONS FOR PRACTICE: Colorectal cancer (CRC) in adolescents and young adults (AYA) comprises a distinct entity with different clinicopathologic features and prognosis compared with older patients. Molecular profiling of right- and left-sided tumors in AYA is needed to gain novel insight into CRC biology and to tailor targeted treatment in this age group. This study fou...

Conclusions: We found age-related disparities in CRC incidence and IBM between individuals under age 50 and age 50 years and older. Increasing incidence rates of rectal cancer substantially accounts for this disparity among individuals under age 50. The escalating trends of early-onset CRC warrant investigation into the factors leading to the population-level trends. PMID: 31827515 [PubMed]

Recent increases in colorectal cancer (CRC) incidence in adults less than 50 years of age have led to more colonoscopies in this age group. As a result, there may be an increasing number of adults1cm) serrated polyps in younger versus older adults who return for a follow-up colonoscopy.
