Patients with familial adenomatous polyposis harbor colonic biofilms containing tumorigenic bacteria
Individuals with sporadic colorectal cancer (CRC) frequently harbor abnormalities in the composition of the gut microbiome; however, the microbiota associated with precancerous lesions in hereditary CRC remains largely unknown. We studied colonic mucosa of patients with familial adenomatous polyposis (FAP), who develop benign precursor lesions (polyps) early in life. We identified patchy bacterial biofilms composed predominately of Escherichia coli and Bacteroides fragilis. Genes for colibactin (clbB) and Bacteroides fragilis toxin (bft), encoding secreted oncotoxins, were highly enriched in FAP patients’ colonic muc...

Check-Cap wins CE Mark for C-Scan diagnostic capsule
Check-Cap (NSDQ:CHEK) said today it won CE Mark approval in the European Union for its C-Scan ingestible sensor capsule designed for colorectal cancer screening. The Israel-based company’s C-Scan system is desgiend as an alternative to standard colon cancer screaning methods. The system uses an ingestible, ultra-low dose X-ray capsule and a wireless tracking system to return structural information on the lumen of the colon to create 2D and 3D maps. Physicians can use maps created by the system to identify pre-cancerous polyps and other abnormalities, Check-Cap said. “Achieving CE Mark approval is a significan...

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)
