'Keto' Molecule May Be Useful in Preventing and Treating Colorectal Cancer, Study Suggests

Beta-hydroxybutyrate, an alternative-energy molecule produced by the body in response to starvation or low-carb diets, strongly suppresses the growth of colorectal tumors in lab experiments, ...

AI Reduces Miss Rate of Precancerous Polyps in Colorectal Cancer Screening

Artificial intelligence reduced by twofold the rate at which precancerous polyps were missed in colorectal cancer screening, reported a team of international ...

Colon Cancer: How Mutation of the APC Gene Disrupts Lymphocyte Migration

In patients with familial adenomatous polyposis, a genetic disease predisposing to colon cancer, mutations of the APC gene induce the formation of intestinal polyps, but also reduce immune system ...

HIV Drug Stabilizes Disease Progression in Metastatic Colorectal Cancer

Many cancers exhibit high levels of the reverse transcriptase enzyme. Single-agent lamivudine, a reverse transcriptase inhibitor, stopped disease progression in over 25% of patients with fourth-line ...

Researchers Identify New Targets for Immunotherapy in Colon Cancer

Scientists identify a pathway of immune cell inhibition that may provide the basis for novel approaches to immunotherapy of colon cancer. Their results also highlight important roles of the ...

Fundamental Cancer Metabolism Dogma Revisited

Accelerated glucose uptake and metabolism, known as the Warburg effect, is a feature of a small group of non-dividing cells within a colon cancer tumor. Intestinal cancer cells rely on Warburg ...
