Investigators examine colorectal cancer screening methods among diverse populations
Date:5/4/2010

y examining the results of screening by colonoscopy of African Americans at their institution and comparing the results of those ages 45 to 49 with those ages 50 to 59. Their study of 335 African Americans found adenomatous polyps in 22.3 percent of the younger cohort compared to 19.7 percent of the older cohort. Of the polyps found, 4.5 percent showed high grade dysplasia, indicating they were advanced, in the younger group compared to 0.4 percent in the older group.

Researchers also found that patients in the older group were more likely to consume asprin daily compared to their younger counterparts (26.1 percent versus 13.5 percent), which may have contributed to their lower incidence of polyps since asprin is known to be a protective measure against CRC.

"Our findings certainly support the recommendation that African Americans should consider beginning screening for colorectal cancer at an earlier age," said Dr. Friedenberg. He added that further prospective trials should be done, and that their study indicates a need for efforts to educate the African American community about their increased risk for CRC at a younger age.

Dr. Friedenberg will present these data on Monday, May 3 at 8 a.m. CT in Hall F, Ernest N. Morial Convention Center.

Disappearing Colorectal Metastases after Chemotherapy: Should We Be Concerned? (Abstract # 315)

Patients with colorectal cancer (CRC) that has metastasized to the liver typically receive both aggressive chemotherapy and surgical therapy to remove lesions in the liver, often with outstanding long-term outcomes. When the cancer is initially resectable in the liver, recommendations are inconsistent regarding which therapy should be given first. Despite the possible challenges in identifying lesions for surgical removal that have been reduced in size by chemotherapy, researchers at Johns Hopkins University Hospital have determined that there are multiple potential benefits to prov
