Improving Colorectal Cancer Prevention: Latest Advances to Improve Adenoma Detection Rates

Colorectal cancer (CRC) is the third most common type of cancer worldwide and second deadliest form of cancer in the United States. Current estimates suggest that up to 25% of adenomas are missed with current colonoscopy technologies, primarily due to poor visualization in folds and other difficult-to-detect areas. Technological advances in recent years have improved detection rates. This CME activity will review appropriate screening and prevention efforts for the early detection of patients ...

Checkpoint Inhibitors in Gastrointestinal Tumors: The Latest Evidence on Safety, Efficacy, and Biomarkers

The genomes of cancers deficient in mismatch repair (MMR) contain extremely high numbers of somatic mutations. Analysis of recent clinical studies have demonstrated that colorectal cancers with mismatch repair deficiency (dMMR) and other advanced dMMR cancers are sensitive to immune checkpoint blockade with PD-1 antibodies, and that mutational burden correlates with treatment response. These findings have led to the recent approval of two immune checkpoint inhibitors for the treatment of micro...
