Colon cancer: APC protein affects immunity by preventing pre-cancerous inflammation
(Institut Pasteur) Adenomatous polyposis coli is a gene whose mutations are associated with a rare, hereditary form of colorectal cancer known as familial adenomatous polyposis. Research led by scientists at the Institut Pasteur and Inserm have recently demonstrated that mutations to this gene do not only lead to the emergence of colon polyps; they also harm the immune system, leaving it unable to tackle inflammation of the colonic mucosa. This dual impact supports the development of cancer. (Source: EurekAlert! - Medicine and Health)

Serrated polyps plus conventional adenomas may mean higher risk for colorectal cancer
(Dartmouth-Hitchcock Medical Center) Examining more than 5,000 reports from the New Hampshire Colonoscopy Registry, A Dartmouth research team finds that individuals with both conventional adenomas as well as a subset of lesions known as serrated polyps may be at higher risk for developing colorectal cancer or high-risk adenomas that can lead to colorectal cancer, than those who have serrated polyps or high-risk adenomas alone. Individuals with both serrated polyps and high-risk adenomas may therefore benefit from closer surveillance. (Source: EurekAlert! - Cancer)

Two weeks to bowel cancer?
There’s no doubt antibiotics have saved a lot of lives. But because they’ve been overprescribed for so many years we’ve ended up with a slew of health problems. For one thing, overuse of antibiotics wreaks havoc on your microbiome… That’s your body’s ecosystem. Your microbiome has 100 trillion or so bacteria, viruses and fungi. It affects just about every organ and body system. Some of these gut bugs cause disease and infection. But other good bacteria are called “probiotics.” They boost your immune system. They help you digest your food and turn it into vitamins. But in...

Check-Cap (NSDQ:CHEK) said today that it filed for CE-Mark registration of its C-Scan ingestible capsule, designed for preparation-free, colorectal cancer screening. Data used to support the EU regulatory submission showed that C-Scan had a 44% sensitivity in the 45 study participants included in an analysis for polyps, with 89% specificity. The company reported that sensitivity strongly correlated to the percentage of the colon scanned – sensitivity was 78% and 100% for participants where greater than 50% and 70% of the colon was scanned, respectively. The 66 patients enrolled in the trial ingested the capsule ...

The difference was more pronounced for cancer of the distal colon and rectum and for physicians with higher polyp detection rates. The findings are published in Annals of Internal Medicine.

What Causes Anemia?
Discussion One of the most common problems in pediatrics is anemia. It is defined as “a lower than normal value for the related measurements of hemoglobin, hematocrit, and number of red blood cells”, usually 2 standard deviations below the normal for age. Normal hematological values change with age. For a discussion of which values are used click here. The most common type of anemia in childhood is iron deficiency which is commonly caused by inadequate stores (e.g. premature infant), inadequate intake (e.g. poor nutrition) or blood loss (e.g. menses). Anemia screening is recommended at age 9-12 months, and for...

Antibiotic use linked to 'pre-cancerous' bowel changes
Conclusion Antibiotics, like all drugs, have side effects. We know that they affect the composition of bacteria that live in a healthy gut. This study suggests that might possibly be linked to future development of bowel cancer. However, there are some major limitations to keep in mind. Bowel polyps are very common, and they're not cancerous. Most people who have them won't know they're there, unless they have a colonoscopy. Some polyps do develop into bowel cancer, but we don't know if any of these women got bowel cancer, or how many of their polyps would have become cancerous if not treated. It's highly possible that wom...

Colorectal Cancer Rates Are Rising Sharply Among Young Americans
This study didn’t measure why colorectal cancer was rising in younger people, but the scientists did dive into past research on the subject to came up with a few theories.  Colorectal cancer risk is linked to excess body weight, cigarette smoking and the consumption of lots of alcohol and highly processed meat. At the same time, eating little fiber and a sedentary lifestyle are also linked to a higher risk of colorectal cancer. While it’s true that younger generations smoke and drink less than baby boomers, they also weigh more, and at younger ages. This prolonged obesity could be a clue, Siegel and her co...

This test is unique because it’s blood-based – meaning no more stool samples or the dreaded colonoscopy. Patients can have the test done as part of their annual blood tests, and they don’t have to think twice about it. But what it lacks in discomfort it makes up for in inexactitude. This newly approved test is not as sensitive or as accurate as a colonoscopy or as a Fecal Immunochemical Test (FIT), which can detect hidden blood in stool, potentially indicating co...
