Antihypertensive medication use is associated with a reduction in cancer-specific mortality among patients diagnosed with colorectal cancer.
Higher vitamin D intake is associated with reduced risk of early-onset colorectal cancer (CRC) and precursors among young women.
Researchers evaluated the use of multi-target stool DNA in the detection of post-colonoscopy colorectal neoplasia.
Maternal obesity and certain patterns of pregnancy weight gain are associated with an increased risk for colorectal cancer in adult offspring.
Frequency of drinking alcohol may be a more important risk factor for incident gastrointestinal cancers than the amount of alcohol consumed per occasion.
Investigators assessed the cardiac-specific mortality rate among patients with major GI cancers, as well as the relationship between radiation and chemotherapy with survival outcomes.
Researchers investigated whether the use of aspirin and/or SSRIs showed clinical benefit in reducing risk for colorectal cancer.

The risk for future neoplasia and advanced neoplasia is increased in colon segments after incomplete resection of neoplastic polyps.
Researchers summarized the performance of fecal immunochemical tests in the detection of colorectal cancer in patients presenting to primary healthcare.

Investigators compared the association of colorectal cancer risk with the use of colonoscopy or fecal immunochemical testing during cancer screening.
Statin use was linked to a lower risk for incident cancer and cancer-related mortality in heart failure.
Investigators evaluated CRC incidence rates stratified by sex and age group from 1935 to 2017.
The association was observed with colon cancer but not rectal cancer.
Researchers investigated the association between continued colorectal cancer screening beyond age 75 and reduced risk for cancer incidence and mortality.
Investigators assessed the safety and viability of perioperative systemic therapy for the treatment of colorectal peritoneal metastases.
