Colon cancer cell switch helps evades treatment

Researchers in Germany have discovered that colon cancers are often resistant to existing drug treatments because they are composed of two different cell types that can replace each other when one cell type is killed. The study, 'Targeting tumor cell plasticity by combined inhibition of NOTCH and MAPK signaling in colon cancer', published in the Journal of Experimental Medicine, suggests that combination therapies targeting both cell types at once may be more effective at treating colorectal cancer, the third highest cause of cancer-related death in the United States.

ACPGBI publishes paper outlining future training needs for the colorectal community

After consultation with its members, the Association of Coloproctology of Great Britain and Ireland (ACPGBI) has published a paper outlining the perceived educational needs, knowledge and skill gaps, and current barriers of the UK and Ireland colorectal community. The paper, ‘Developing a national colorectal educational agenda: a survey of the Association of Coloproctology of Great Britain and Ireland’, was published in Colorectal Disease.

Nitrate in drinking water increases the risk of colorectal cancer

There is an increased risk of colon and rectal cancer in connection with nitrate in drinking water, according to a study from Aarhus University, Aarhus and the Geological Survey of Denmark and Greenland (GEUS) and the National Centre for Register-based Research also from Aarhus University Denmark. Nitrate in groundwater and drinking water, which primarily comes from fertilisers used in the agricultural production, has not only been subject to decades of environmental awareness - it has also been suspected of increasing the risk of cancer.
