What is Trip?

Trip is a clinical search engine designed to allow users to quickly and easily find and use high-quality research evidence to support their practice and/or care.

Trip has been online since 1997 and in that time has developed into the internet’s premier source of evidence-based content. Our motto is ‘Find evidence fast’ and this is something we aim to deliver for every single search.

As well as research evidence we also allow clinicians to search across other content types including images, videos, patient information leaflets, educational courses and news.

42. Towards risk-stratified colorectal cancer screening. Adding risk factors to the fecal immunochemical test: Evidence, evolution and expectations (Abstract)

Towards risk-stratified colorectal cancer screening. Adding risk factors to the fecal immunochemical test: Evidence, evolution and expectations With increasing incidence and mortality, colorectal cancer (CRC) is a growing health problem worldwide. An effective way to address CRC is by screening for fecal (occult) blood by the fecal immunochemical test (FIT). However, there is room for improvement since precursor lesions and CRC bleed intermittent and can therefore be missed by the FIT (false

Effect of a Single Aspirin Dose Prior to Fecal Immunochemical Testing on Test Sensitivity for Detecting Advanced Colorectal Neoplasms: A Randomized Clinical Trial. Fecal immunochemical tests for hemoglobin are widely used for colorectal cancer (CRC) screening.

53. Lymphocyte-C-reactive Protein Ratio as Promising New Marker for Predicting Surgical and Oncological Outcomes in Colorectal Cancer (Abstract)

Lymphocyte-C-reactive Protein Ratio as Promising New Marker for Predicting Surgical and Oncological Outcomes in Colorectal Cancer MINI: In the present study, we systemically and comprehensively evaluated the prognostic significance of a combination of inflammatory factors using preoperative blood examination, and focused on the potential feasibility of our newly developed lymphocyte-CRP ratio (LCR) as a prognostic biomarker in CRC patients. We have firstly identified that a combination (...) of lymphocytic counts along with CRP levels, which we defined as LCR, is a more reliable indicator of poor prognosis compared with other combinations of inflammatory markers, in CRC patients. Furthermore, preoperative LCR could also identify CRC patients who are at higher risk for postoperative infectious complications.Systemic inflammation via host-tumor interactions is currently recognized as a hallmark of cancer. The aim of this study was to evaluate the prognostic value of various combinations
