Good cardiorespiratory fitness when young is associated with up to a 40% lower risk of developing 9 specific cancers later on-; at least in men-; suggests a large long-term study published online in the British Journal of Sports Medicine.
Digital Science, a technology company serving stakeholders across the research ecosystem, is pleased to announce that Bowel Research UK (BRUK) has chosen Symplectic Grant Tracker from Digital Science's suite of flagship products to advance its aims of funding life-changing research into bowel cancer and other bowel diseases.
The DECADE research project is the first to use swarm learning in cancer research. The German Cancer Aid is funding the joint project of several university hospitals with around 1.5 million euros.
In a significant development in the fight against fatal cancers, University of Otago researchers have pinpointed a key feature that leads to the aggressive spread of colon cancer.
The accuracy of detecting bowel cancer is increased to almost 100 per cent by carrying out a common test twice rather than once, a new study shows.
People with severe mental illness are less likely to attend cancer screening compared to those who do not have such conditions, according to new research from the University of Surrey and the Office for Health Improvement and Disparities (OHID) at the Department of Health and Social Care.
Patients can be reassured that delays in stoma reversal surgery do not affect long-term outcomes according to research funded by Bowel Cancer UK and North West Cancer Research.
Tens of thousands of patients across the country could benefit from quicker, earlier diagnoses and more effective treatments for a range of conditions - as the government invests nearly £16 million into pioneering artificial intelligence research (AI).
The UK government's proposal to roll England's long term plan for cancer into one strategy covering all major conditions, such as cardiovascular disease, chronic respiratory disease, dementia, mental health conditions, and musculoskeletal disorders is "a catastrophic decision that will cost lives," warn experts in The BMJ today.
Researchers from Northumbria University have found that swapping red and processed meat for Quorn's mycoprotein, a fungi-based meat alternative, leads to a significant reduction in intestinal genotoxins - which can cause bowel cancer - and increases healthy gut bacteria.
In this interview, Yantao Li and Zhe Wang, Director of Cancer Early Screening Products and the Product Director of Oncology at BGI Genomics, talks to NewsMedical about colorectal cancer (CRC), including why incidences are important and the importance of screening.
At MEDICA 2022, NewsMedical spoke with Andy Chaloner about Stream Bio's conjugated polymer nanoparticle technologies that have the potential to revolutionize the medical and life sciences sectors, from diagnostics to clinical imaging.
Scientists have revealed the inner workings of a key protein involved in a wide range of cellular processes – potentially paving the way for better and less toxic cancer drugs.
BGI has currently published over 440 SCI (Science Citation Index) papers in the field of cancer research, with a cumulative impact factor of over 4,000 points.
n England, 37 people die each day from bowel cancer, but screening using fecal blood testing followed by a colonoscopy can reduce both the incidence of this cancer and the number of resulting deaths. The NHS bowel cancer screening program invites everyone of a certain age to use a home kit that tests the amount of blood in their feces.
Scientists at the Francis Crick Institute have found that using immunotherapy alongside a drug that blocks a common gene mutation in lung cancer could be a promising new combination therapy for certain types of lung tumors.
Scientists have found that non-coding 'junk' DNA, far from being harmless and inert, could potentially contribute to the development of cancer.
Researchers have isolated five strains of gut bacteria that could pave the way for new inflammatory bowel disease treatments and potentially help prevent some forms of bowel cancer.
More than 70 percent of patients with bowel cancer are not diagnosed using official screening programs meaning diagnoses are often made late, when the cancer is at an advanced stage, according to new research from the University of Surrey.
