Coffee is a rich source of bioactive compounds that have potential anti-carcinogenic effects. However, it remains unclear whether coffee drinking is associated with colorectal cancer. Also, despite different etiological factors involved in gut physiology, few studies have investigated this association by anatomical site of the lesion. To address these issues, this study examined the association between coffee drinking and colorectal cancer in a pooled analysis from 8 cohort studies conducted in Japan. Among 320,322 participants followed up for 4,503,276 person-years, 6,711 incident colorectal cancer cases were identified...

PURPOSE OF REVIEW: The purpose of this review is to summarize the management of serrated colorectal polyps (SPs), with a particular focus on the most common premalignant SP, sessile serrated adenoma or polyp (SSA/P). These lesions present a challenge for endoscopists with respect to detection and resection, and are also susceptible to pathologic misdiagnosis. RECENT FINDINGS: Patients with SSA/Ps are at an increased risk of future colorectal neoplasia, including advanced polyps and cancer...

KRAS mutations serve a function in tumorigenesis of colorectal cancer (CRC) and guide the use of targeted drugs. However, the prognostic value of KRAS mutations and their subtypes remain controversial. The present study aimed to investigate the correlations between KRAS mutations and clinicopathological characteristics, and their prognostic significance in Chinese patients with metastatic CRC (mCRC). A total of 135 patients with mCRC were analyzed for KRAS mutations. Mutations in codon 12 and 13 were identified in 45 (33...

Context: UK Biobank is a prospective study of half a million subjects, almost all aged 40-69 years, identified in 22 centres across the UK during 2006-2010. Objective: A healthy lifestyle has been described as 'better than any pill, and no side effects [5]. We therefore examined the relationships between healthy behaviours: low alcohol intake, non-smoking, healthy BMI, physical activity and a healthy diet, and the risk of all cancers, colon, breast and prostate cancers in a large dataset...

The activation of signal transducer and activator of transcription 3 (STAT3) by elevated interleukin (IL) levels has been reported to regulate tumorigenesis both in vitro and in vivo. However, the clinical implication of p-STAT3 expression in colon cancer is still controversial. In this study, we evaluated the effect of STAT3 inactivation on biologic behavior of primary (Caco-2) and metastatic colon cancer cells (LoVo and SNU407) and the relation of p-STAT3 expression with the invasion of colon tumor. In vitro study, the STAT3 inhibition by siRNA and stattic treatment significantly reduced colony formation and cell migration and decreased CD133 and survivin the expression compared with a control in all three cell lines...

Background/Aims: Sessile serrated adenomas (SSAs) are known to be precursors of colorectal cancer (CRC). The proper interval of follow-up colonoscopy for SSAs is still being debated. We sought to determine the proper interval of colonoscopy surveillance in patients diagnosed with SSAs in South Korea. Methods: We retrospectively reviewed the medical records of patients diagnosed with SSAs who received 1 or more follow-up colonoscopies. The information reviewed included patient baseline characteristics, SSA characteristics, and colonoscopy information...

A theory-driven tailored intervention developed in partnership with the community used evidence-based practices to (a) increase knowledge about colon cancer and screening and (b) assist patients in completing screenings. During the 16 months of delivery screening, patient navigators integrated into gastroenterology clinics met all goals, which included (a) enrolling an ethnically diverse group of participants ( N = 415) through inreach (clinic-referred patients who did not schedule appointments) and community outreach, (b) facilitating screening completions for 217 of the 358 (61%) patients identified as needing screening, and (c) obtaining satisfaction ratings from 89% of participants...

BACKGROUND: Patients with a history of colonic resection for cancer have an increased risk for the development of metachronous malignant lesions. However, there is a lack of data on the detection rates of premalignant lesions during colonoscopy surveillance in these patients, and the few existing studies have shown conflicting results. AIMS: To identify the risk factor of metachronous premalignant lesions after colon cancer surgery. METHODS: We retrospectively screened consecutive patients who had undergone colonic surgery to treat colon cancer at the Chungnam National University Hospital between September 2009 and April 2014...

BACKGROUND:  Endoscopic resection of all colonic adenomas prevents the occurrence of colon cancer and death. The European Society of Gastrointestinal Endoscopy Clinical Guideline recommends resection of all polyps predicted to be adenomas and cold snare polypectomy (CSP) for removal of adenomas ≤ 9 mm on the basis of safety; however, it also states that this recommendation lacks adequate evidence of efficacy. The residual adenoma rate after resection is an important indicator of efficacy, but there have been no reports showing this prospectively...

The alcohol-colorectal cancer (CRC) association may differ by sex and ADH1B and ADH1C genotypes. ADH enzymes oxidize ethanol to acetaldehyde, both of which are human carcinogens. The Netherlands Cohort Study includes 120,852 participants, aged 55-69 years at baseline (1986), and has 20.3 years follow-up (case-cohort: nsubcohort=4,774; ncases=4,597). The baseline questionnaire included questions on alcohol intake at baseline and five years before. Using toenail DNA, available for ~75% of the cohort, we successfully genotyped 6 ADH1B and 6 ADH1C SNPs (nsubcohort=3,897; ncases=3,558)...

INTRODUCTION: Locally advanced rectal cancers are most often treated with neoadjuvant chemoradiation followed by surgical resection. However, there are differing opinions surrounding management of rectal cancer, including a lack of consensus on the optimal time interval between chemoradiation and surgery, and the management of patients with complete clinical response following neoadjuvant therapy. This study seeks to summarize management trends for rectal cancer among a sample of Canadian surgeons...
