    Multiple Sclerosis Drug Linked To Increased Risk Of Colorectal Cancer

    The multiple sclerosis drug mitoxantrone may be associated with an increased risk of colorectal cancer, according to a study published in the May 11, 2016, the medical journal of the American Academy of Neurology. Mitoxantrone suppresses the immune system. It was first developed as a chemotherapy drug for certain cancers. Mitoxantrone is used for aggressive types of relapsing-remitting or progressive MS that do not respond to other Multiple sclerosis drug. But its use is limited because previous studies have shown an increased risk of leukemia and heart damage.The current study examined whether the drug increases the risk of other types of cancer. For the study, German researchers looked at all…

    Researchers Discover a New Therapeutic Role for a Chemotherapy Drug in Colon Cancer

    A team led by researchers at the Karolinska Institute in Sweden and Nanyang Technological University in Singapore recently reported that an already existing chemotherapy drug for the treatment of leukemia can reduce the growth of colorectal cancer. The study was published in the prestigious journal Science Translational Medicine and is entitled “An EphB-Abl signaling pathway is associated with intestinal tumor initiation and growntu.edu.sg/Pages/home.aspxth.” Colon cancer is a common malignancy that usually develops from abnormal growths (polyps) in the inner walls of the large intestine. Normally these growths are primarily benign tumors that, when not treated, become aggressive and may metastasize (spread) to other parts of the body. Screening and polyp removal can prevent the disease. Colon…

    INFLAMMATORY' DIET LINKED TO HIGHER RISK OF COLON CANCER

    People who consume lots of foods linked to chronic inflammation, such as red meat and refined grains, may be more likely to develop colorectal cancer than individuals who tend to avoid these foods, a US study suggests.Researchers examined more than two decades of US survey data on eating habits and cancer diagnoses for 74,246 female nurses and 46,804 male health professionals. They sorted participants into five groups based on how likely it was that their daily diets could contribute to inflammation. Compared to people with diets that had the least potential to cause inflammation, individuals with diets that were most likely to cause inflammation were 32% more likely to develop…

    Chemotherapy Options For Colorectal Cancer Treatment

    Colorectal Cancer Treatment Colorectal Cancer Treatment is a common treatment option for patients with stage III or stage IV colorectal cancer. Chemotherapy drugs work to either destroy cancer cells outright, or impede their ability to grow and reproduce. This type of Colorectal Cancer Treatment is usually administered through a vein or the hepatic artery.When given as an adjuvant therapy (i.e., additional treatment following colorectal cancer surgery), chemotherapy can: Help destroy colorectal cancer cells that remain after surgery Prevent colorectal cancer from spreading to other parts of the body (e.g., liver) Help lower the risk of cancer recurrence Chemotherapy given prior to colorectal cancer surgery (neoadjuvant therapy) can help reduce the…

    Dangerous Mistakes In Colorectal Cancer And How To Avoid Them

    Colorectal cancer (CRC) is one of the most common malignancies and the second leading cause of cancer death in both sexes in developed countries. Over the past 30 years, a great advance in the understanding of this disease has occurred, from colorectal carcinogenesis to diagnosis, prevention and treatment.Although the majority of CRCs are related to environmental factors, up to 25% of cases have a familial component and potential genetic basis, and highly penetrant monogenic germline mutations account for up to 5% of all CRC cases1. Identification and characterization of these hereditary disorders have allowed modification of their natural history, with a substantial decrease in morbidity and mortality among high-risk patients…

    Colon cancer is the second leading cause of cancer deaths in the U.S. with nearly 150,000 cases diagnosed each year. All told, around five percent of American men and women will experience colon or rectal cancer in the course of their lifetime of whom 30 percent will die as a result of the disease. Early diagnosis is key to treatment success. Despite this commonly known fact, people will resist getting a colorectal exam because they don’t believe themselves to be at risk.To those in doubt about the importance of routine screening, consider the following 11 factors associated with an increased risk of colon cancer: 1. Age and Aging Age is the number one…

    Bariatric Surgery Leads Patients to Deadly Colon Cancer,New Study

    The risk of colorectal cancer was significantly increased among people who had undergone obesity surgery in a retrospective cohort study of more than 77,000 obese patients enrolled in a Swedish registry.The increased risk for colorectal cancer was associated with all three bariatric procedures – vertical banded gastroplasty, adjustable gastric banding, and Roux-en-Y gastric bypass – and increased further over time, reported Dr. Maryam Derogar, of the Karolinska Institutet, Stockholm, and her associates. No such pattern over time was seen among the obese patients who did not have surgery.  “Our data suggest that increased colorectal cancer risk may be a long-term consequence of such surgery,” they concluded. If the association is…

    Deadly Symptoms Of Colon Cancer, #10 Is Vertigo

    Colon cancer, also known as colorectal cancer, is one of the most prominent and dangerous forms of cancer. It starts with the buildup of polyps along the wall of the colon; as these polyps reproduce, they present the patient with serious digestive problems. Should the polyps remain benign, meaning non-cancerous, typically they only present the patient with discomfort; however, should they become cancerous, they can cause cancer cells to spread throughout this and other parts of the body, significantly threatening the life of the patient. One of the reasons colon cancer is so deadly: it’s hard to detect. As this article will show, early signs of colon cancer are easy…
