A literature review was performed to summarize evidence and current standards of radiotherapeutic concepts in the treatment of colorectal cancer. For stage II/III rectal cancer, neoadjuvant radiotherapy is superior to adjuvant treatment. Two preoperative regimens have been established and are commonly used with different objectives: short-course radiotherapy (SC-RT) and long-course chemoradiotherapy (LC-CRT). Both reduce the risk of local relapse. Additionally, LC

Therefore, prevention and early detection (...) are crucial in order to detect and remove pre-neoplastic adenomas and to detect cancers at early stages. Colonoscopy, flexible sigmoidoscopy, and fecal occult blood tests are established tools for screening. Newer fecal immunochemical tests reveal higher sensitivities for advanced adenoma and cancer than guaiac-based hemoccult tests. Molecular stool and blood tests as well as virtual colonoscopy and colon capsule endoscopy are promising new developments so far not established as routine instruments

169. Screening for Colorectal Cancer: US Preventive Services Task Force Recommendation Statement.

Screening for Colorectal Cancer: US Preventive Services Task Force Recommendation Statement. IMPORTANCE: Colorectal cancer is the second leading cause of cancer death in the United States. In 2016, an estimated 134,000 persons will be diagnosed with the disease, and about 49,000 will die from it. Colorectal cancer is most frequently diagnosed among adults aged 65 to 74 years; the median age at death from colorectal cancer is 68 years. OBJECTIVE: To update the 2008 US Preventive Services Task (...) Force (USPSTF) recommendation on screening for colorectal cancer. EVIDENCE REVIEW: The USPSTF reviewed the evidence on the effectiveness of screening with colonoscopy, flexible sigmoidoscopy, computed tomography colonography, the guaiac-based fecal occult blood test, the fecal immunochemical test, the multitargeted stool DNA test, and the methylated SEPT9 DNA test in reducing the incidence of and mortality from colorectal cancer or all-cause mortality; the harms of these screening tests

We evaluated LEP (rs7799039) and LEPR (rs1137101) gene variants by using PCR-RFLP method in 261 cases with CRC and 339 controls. No significant difference was found for rs7799039 and rs1137101gene variants between the cases with CRC and controls.
