PURPOSE Newfoundland has one of the highest rates of colorectal cancer in North America. The most common hereditary form of colorectal cancer is hereditary nonpolyposis colorectal cancer caused by mutations in genes involved in mismatch repair. Our purpose was to determine the proportion of hereditary colorectal cancer and to determine the genetic basis of(More)
Identifying colorectal cancers (CRCs) with high levels of microsatellite instability (MSI-H) is clinically important. MSI-H is a positive prognostic marker for CRC, a predictive marker for resistance to standard 5-fluorouracil-based adjuvant chemotherapy, and an important feature for identifying individuals and families with Lynch syndrome. Our aim was to(More)
BACKGROUND The serrated pathway represents a distinct molecular pathway of colorectal carcinogenesis and is associated with the p.V600E BRAF mutation. The objective of this study is to characterize the cancer family history and clinicopathologic features of colorectal cancer (CRC) patients according to the microsatellite instability (MSI) and BRAF mutation(More)
INTRODUCTION In this study, 27 genetic polymorphisms that were previously reported to be associated with clinical outcomes in colorectal cancer patients were investigated in relation to overall survival (OS) and disease free survival (DFS) in colorectal cancer patients from Newfoundland. METHODS The discovery and validation cohorts comprised of 532 and(More)
Prognosis in colorectal cancer patients is quite variable, even after adjustment for clinical parameters such as disease stage and microsatellite instability status. It is possible that the psychological distress experienced by patients, including anxiety and depression, may be correlated with poor prognosis. In the present study, we hypothesize that(More)
INTRODUCTION Colorectal cancer is a common malignancy. Identification of genetic prognostic markers may help prognostic estimations in colorectal cancer. Genes that regulate response to hypoxia and other genes that are regulated under the hypoxic conditions have been shown to play roles in cancer progression. In this study, we hypothesized that genetic(More)
In this study, we aimed to investigate the associations of genetic variations within select genes functioning in angiogenesis, lymph-angiogenesis, and metastasis pathways and the risk of outcome in colorectal cancer patients. We followed a two-stage analysis: First, 381 polymorphisms from 30 genes (eight Vascular Endothelial Growth Factor (VEGF) and 22(More)
Medical News voluntarily folded to join the McGill Medical Journal in the new Canadian Medical Association Journal venture; that same year, the independent Halifax Medical College formally joined Dalhousie University as its Faculty of Medicine. Just four years earl ier, a boy who would eventually attend Dalhousie medical school was born in the Newfoundland(More)
