Researchers have identified a new gene that is essential to colon cancer growth and found that inflammation in the external environment around the tumor can contribute to the growth of tumor ...

Physical activity may be associated with improved outcomes for patients undergoing postoperative treatment for Stage III colon cancer, a new study ...

In a new study, researchers define how the circadian clock influences cell growth, metabolism and tumor progression. Their research also reveals how disruption of the circadian clock impacts genome ...

Researchers have combined optical coherence tomography (OCT) and machine learning to develop a colorectal cancer imaging tool that may one day improve the traditional endoscopy currently used by ...

Colorectal tumors are a common adverse effect of chronic inflammation of the intestine. In a new study, researchers demonstrate that mice models with dendritic cell immunoreceptor (DCIR) protein ...

Researchers designed a silicon-based agent that successfully generated hydrogen continuously in the mouse gastrointestinal tract in an ulcerative colitis (UC) model. The hydrogen served as an ...


Colorectal tumors are swarming with white blood cells, but whether these cells help or hinder the cancer is hotly debated. While some studies have shown that white blood cells heroically restrict ...

Data suggest that Clostridioides difficile, or C. diff, a bacterial species well known for causing serious diarrheal infections, may also drive colorectal ...

New research builds the case that a Western-style diet -- rich in red and processed meat, sugar and refined grains/carbohydrates -- is tied to higher risk of colorectal cancer through the intestinal ...

New research in mice has paved the way for a Phase I clinical trial and has the potential to transform vaccines against HIV and ...

A new combination therapy to combat cancer could one day consist of a plant virus and an antibody that activates the immune system's 'natural killer' cells, shows a new study. In mouse ...

Researchers have discovered a possible new approach in treating solid tumors through the creation of a novel ...


A multi-institutional, international study found that testing for ctDNA after surgery and directing chemotherapy to ctDNA-positive patients reduced the use of chemotherapy overall without ...

A new study reports a 50 to 60 percent lower risk of colorectal cancer (CRC) among women who started endoscopy screening at age 45 compared to those who had not undergone screening at ...

Beta-hydroxybutyrate, an alternative-energy molecule produced by the body in response to starvation or low-carb diets, strongly suppresses the growth of colorectal tumors in lab experiments, ...

Artificial intelligence reduced by twofold the rate at which precancerous polyps were missed in colorectal cancer screening, reported a team of international ...

In patients with familial adenomatous polyposis, a genetic disease predisposing to colon cancer, mutations of the APC gene induce the formation of intestinal polyps, but also reduce immune system ...

Many cancers exhibit high levels of the reverse transcriptase enzyme. Single-agent lamivudine, a reverse transcriptase inhibitor, stopped disease progression in over 25% of patients with fourth-line ...

Scientists identify a pathway of immune cell inhibition that may provide the basis for novel approaches to immunotherapy of colon cancer. Their results also highlight important roles of the ...

Accelerated glucose uptake and metabolism, known as the Warburg effect, is a feature of a small group of non-dividing cells within a colon cancer tumor. Intestinal cancer cells rely on Warburg ...
