Colorectal Cancer is cancer that develops in the colon (the longest part of the large intestine) and/or the rectum (the last several inches of the large intestine before the anus). In the United States, it is the fourth most common cancer in men and women. Caught early, it is often curable.
This study was led by Prof. Xiao-Ping Miao' team from the School of Public Health, Wuhan University, in collaboration with Prof. Shaokai Zhang from the Henan Cancer Hospital.
When a cell dies, a new one has to be formed in its place. This is a regular occurrence in the intestines, where cells are especially exposed to harmful effects.
The abundance of two species of bacteria known to be good for human health and used as probiotics, Clostridium butyricum and Parabacteroides distasonis, has been linked to high concentrations of key proteins in human breast milk, particularly osteopontin and κ-casein.
Mainz Biomed NV (“Mainz Biomed” or the “Company”), a molecular genetics diagnostic company specializing in the early detection of cancer, announced today that London-based Marylebone Laboratory (Marylebone Lab Ltd) has introduced ColoAlert®, Mainz Biomed’s flagship product—a highly effective and user-friendly at-home detection test for colorectal cancer (CRC) - to its extensive UK and international customer base.
A new study led by researchers at The University of Texas MD Anderson Cancer Center provides a deeper understanding of the evolution of the tumor microenvironment during gastric cancer progression.
Johns Hopkins Medicine scientists say they have developed a nanoparticle -; an extremely tiny biodegradable container -; that has the potential to improve the delivery of messenger ribonucleic acid (mRNA)-based vaccines for infectious diseases such as COVID-19, and vaccines for treating non-infectious diseases including cancer.
Researchers from the University of Otago have identified a crucial factor that contributes to the aggressive spread of colon cancer, marking a significant advancement in the fight against fatal tumors.
Researchers at the University of Michigan Rogel Cancer Center have discovered a new nutrient source that pancreatic cancer cells use to grow.
Discussions of cancer often stress the genetic mutations that drive disease by altering the normal function of cellular proteins.
Researchers created organoids from cancer cells to reduce the need for trial and error in identifying effective cancer treatments in one of many cancer studies scheduled for presentation this week at Digestive Disease Week (DDW) 2023.
Researchers at the Forsyth Institute have discovered an important mechanism that may have profound implications for how we prevent colorectal cancer. Oddly enough, their discovery began in the mouth.
A diverse community of several bacterial species that are crucial to human health constitute the gut microbiome. Changes in the gut microbiota have been linked to a range of diseases recently, most notably colorectal cancer (CRC), according to researchers across a variety of domains.
Cancer immunotherapies that recruit a patient's own immune system to destroy tumors have transformed the treatment of many types of cancer. Yet these therapies do not elicit universally good treatment responses.
BGI Genomics is pleased to announce the launch of COLOTECTTM 1.0 in Slovakia, in collaboration with its local partner, Zentya. Zentya is a Slovak-based healthcare solution provider that is passionate about providing patients with the latest technology in the field of genetic screening, aiming to help identify and facilitate timely treatments of genetic diseases.
Cell division is the process through which the majority of cells in the bodies of living beings duplicate their contents and physically split into new cells.
Studies show that certain bacteria may contribute to the development of colorectal cancer by producing toxins that may damage colon cells or cause an accumulation of DNA mutations and/or intestinal inflammation.
Bovine meat and milk factors (BMMFs)-; initially identified by de Villiers et al. in 2014-; represent a class of infectious agents in beef and cow's milk that have been linked to the development of cancer.
Iron-dependent cell death (ferroptosis) is a type of programmed cell death by means of which the body kills off diseased, defective or superfluous cells.
Researchers from Northumbria University have found that swapping red and processed meat for Quorn's mycoprotein, a fungi-based meat alternative, leads to a significant reduction in intestinal genotoxins - which can cause bowel cancer - and increases healthy gut bacteria.
The February 2023 issue of SLAS Technology contains a set of four original research articles and one review article covering digital microfluidics (DMF), cryopreservation, colorectal cancer research and other laboratory automation technology.
