Results from a new phase 1 trial indicate that immunotherapy could be used to treat the most common form of colorectal cancer, also known as bowel cancer. Consistent responses to immunotherapy have been reported in patients with the most common type of colorectal tumors, known as MSS mCRC, with 61% of patients seeing their tumor shrink or remain stable after receiving treatment ..read more

Identifying the initial steps in colorectal cancer formation
ScienceDaily » Colon Cancer
by
1M ago
Research provides new evidence that most colorectal cancers begin with the loss of intestinal stem cells, even before cancer-causing genetic alterations appear. The results overturn the prevailing theory for colorectal tumor initiation and suggest new ways to diagnose the disease before it has a chance to become established ..read more

Bacteria in cancer unmasked
ScienceDaily » Colon Cancer
by
3M ago
Researchers have compiled a detailed catalogue of bacteria living in cancer metastases. Having analyzed over 4000 tumors, they shed light on the diversity of these co-inhabitants and how they might interact with cancer cells and their surroundings. For example, certain bacteria were linked to a worse response to immunotherapy. This study paves the way to a better understanding of how bacteria help or hinder cancer (therapy), and how we can use this for patients' advantage ..read more

Bacteria subtype linked to growth in up to 50% of human colorectal cancers
ScienceDaily » Colon Cancer
by
4M ago
Researchers have found that a specific subtype of a microbe commonly found in the mouth is able to travel to the gut and grow within colorectal cancer tumors. This microbe is also a culprit for driving cancer progression and leads to poorer patient outcomes after cancer treatment. The findings could help improve therapeutic approaches and early screening methods for colorectal cancer, which is the second most common cause of cancer deaths in adults in the U.S. according to the American Cancer Society ..read more
