Testing behavioral interventions to optimize participation in a population-based colorectal cancer screening program in Catalonia, Spain The aim of the study was to measure the effect of three cost-neutral behavioral interventions on participation compared to the standard invitation letter in a population-based colorectal cancer screening program in 2014. For that purpose, a four-arm randomized field trial was conducted among 5077 individuals aged 50 to 69 years. Over an 8-week period, each (...) participation (OR: 0.60; 95% CI: 0.38-0.95). While none of the intervention strategies improved participation rates we found that praising the benefit of regular screening may discourage individuals who have never been invited before as the continuous behavior may be perceived as a large request. Nevertheless, the reminder letter boosted participation rates independently of the intervention assigned.Crown Copyright © 2019. Published by Elsevier Inc. All rights reserved.

Making Patients Fit for Surgery: Introducing a Four Pillar Multimodal Prehabilitation Program in Colorectal Cancer. Considering the relation between preoperative functional capacity and postoperative complications, enhancing patients' functional capacity before surgery with a prehabilitation program may facilitate faster recovery and improve quality of life. However, time before surgery is short, mandating a multimodal and high-intensity training approach. This study investigated feasibility (...) for colorectal cancer patients is feasible, safe, and effective. A randomized controlled trial (NTR5947) was initiated to determine whether prehabilitation may lower morbidity and mortality rates in colorectal surgery.

Adjuvant Chemotherapy of Locally Advanced Colon Cancer: Final Results of a Randomized Trial Comparing 5-Fluorouracil and Folinic Acid with Folfiri. There is still the need to optimize adjuvant treatment of colon cancer (CC). Standard adjuvant chemotherapy using 5-fluorouracil (FU) and folinic acid (FA) was compared with a combination including irinotecan (Folfiri). The aim of the present report was to analyze overall survival (OS) after long-term follow-up, to summarize final recurrence rates (...) in 17 (12.8%) patients treated with FUFA and in 50 (36.8%) patients treated with Folfiri. Recurrences occurred in 46 of 133 (34.6%) and in 47 of 136 (34.6%) patients who received FUFA and Folfiri, respectively. 5-year OS rates were 69.9% (95% confidence interval (CI): 61.2-77.1) for FUFA and 72.7% (95% CI: 63.9-79.8) for Folfiri. OS was associated with tumor grading (1 & 2 vs. 3), tumor sub-stage (II vs. IIIa vs. IIIb vs. IIIc), and tumor location (left vs. right colon).Folfiri cannot be generally

Mortality From Postscreening (Interval) Colorectal Cancers Is Comparable to That From Cancer in Unscreened Patients-A Randomized Sigmoidoscopy Trial Endoscopic screening for colorectal cancer (CRC) is performed at longer time intervals than the fecal occult blood test or screenings for breast or prostate cancer. This causes concerns about interval cancers, which have been proposed to progress more rapidly. We compared outcomes of patients with interval CRCs after sigmoidoscopy screening vs (...) diagnosed with CRC 30 days or longer after screening (interval cancer group, n = 163) and individuals diagnosed with CRC in the nonscreened group (controls, n = 1740). All CRCs in the control group were identified when they developed symptoms (clinically detected CRCs). Analyses were stratified by cancer site. We used Cox regression to estimate hazard ratio (HRs), adjusted for age and sex.Over the follow-up period, 43 individuals in the interval cancer group died from CRC; among controls, 525 died from

) in children and adults? Clinical Bottom Line Incidental findings on dental radiographs could serve as screening tools for systemic diseases and syndromes. The attention should be raised when gene mutation, congenitally diseases or familial colorectal cancer are reported by patients during the medical history questionnaire. For patients with risk of FAP, the Dental panoramic radiographic score (DPRS) is inexpensive, and reinforce the referral for the further clinical investigation, gene mapping (...) . Perspective: These studies emphasize the extra-intestinal manifestations of colorectal cancer. The dental anomalies, commonly considered incidental findings, appear around 10 years before the clinical evidence of the intestinal polyps and the dental professional should be aware of these correlations. Since the gene mutation affects families, it is important to early detect, refer and map genetically these patients reducing the morbidity. The colorectal cancer is considered a public health issue, FAP
