Abstract Prevention is essential to reduce Colorectal Cancer (CRC) mortality. We previously reported a panel (CELTiC) of four genes: CEACAM6, LGALS4, TSPAN8, COL1A2 able to discriminate patients with CRC. Here, we assessed the CELTiC panel by quantitative polymerase chain reaction, in the blood of 174 healthy subjects, who resulted negative to the faecal immunochemical test (FITN). Using non-parametric statistic and multinomial logistic models, the FITN were compared to previously analysed subje...

Screening programs (SC) have been proven to reduce both incidence and mortality of CRC. We retrospectively analyzed patients who underwent surgical treatment for CRC between 01/2011 and 01/2017. The current screening program in our region collects patients aged from 50 to 69. For this reason, out of a total of 600 patients, we compared 125 patients with CRC founded during the SC to 162 patients who presented with symptoms and were diagnosed between 50–69 years old (NO-SC). 45% patients in the SC...

Abstract Background One in three adults above 50 years old have not been screened for colorectal cancer as of 2013. 1 Rural areas have even lower screening and have more general surgeons compared to gastroenterologists, 2 offering surgeons as a reservoir for necessary services. Methods Public data from the 2006–2015 CDC National Ambulatory Medical Care Survey was analyzed using SAS. Number of colonoscopies performed by rural general surgeons, family medicine practitioners, and other specialties ...
