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...

Fact or Fiction? Sorting Out Common Misconceptions About Ulcerative Colitis to Improve Patient Care

It is well established that ulcerative colitis (UC) is a heterogeneous disease with symptoms that wane over time. The disease course for 50% of individuals is persistently active over time with worsening and relapsing symptoms and is associated with long-term anemia, colonic dysfunction, and increased risk for colorectal cancer. Evidence indicates that treating the inflammation to achieve improvement in endoscopic appearance of the mucosa early in the course of UC is effective for current flar...

Advances in Colorectal Cancer – From Screening to Innovative Care

Colorectal cancer is the #2 cause of cancer death in North America. While we successfully screen for colorectal cancer, many gaps in evidence-based treatment remain. Current practitioners have questions about the role of circulating tumor DNA in the diagnosis and management of early to advanced colorectal cancer; the role of endoscopic microsurgery in the management of colon cancer; and when full oncologic surgery is required to deliver the most appropriate care for colon cancer. For patients ...
