Colonoscopy quality and safety are comparable for nurse and physician endoscopy trainees, according to a study.
Tests that require patients to collect a single stool sample at home and then send it to a lab for analysis will detect about 79% of colorectal cancers. A review of 19 studies examining eight different FITs also finds that the tests will correctly identify about 94% of patients who do not have cancers of the rectum or colon.
Obese individuals have increased odds of having three or more polyps, as well as tubular adenomas.
Longer withdrawal times during a colonoscopy correlate with a higher rate of polyp detection, according to new research.
ALK and ROS1 gene rearrangements known to drive subsets of lung cancer are also present in some colorectal cancers, which implies that drugs that target ALK and ROS1 in lung cancer may also have applications for colorectal cancer.
