BACKGROUND Serrated cancers account for 10% to 20% of all colorectal cancers (CRC) and more than 30% of interval cancers. The presence of proximal serrated polyps and large (≥10 mm) serrated polyps (LSP) has been correlated with colorectal neoplasia. OBJECTIVE To evaluate the prevalence of serrated polyps and their association with synchronous advanced(More)
OBJECTIVE Serrated polyposis syndrome (SPS) is associated with an increased colorectal cancer (CRC) risk, although the magnitude of the risk remains uncertain. Whereas intensive endoscopic surveillance for CRC prevention is advised, predictors that identify patients who have high CRC risk remain unknown. We performed a multicentre nationwide study aimed at(More)
Autoantibodies raised against tumor-associated antigens have shown high promise as clinical biomarkers for reliable diagnosis, prognosis, and therapy monitoring of cancer. An electrochemical disposable biosensor for the specific and sensitive determination of p53-specific autoantibodies has been developed for the first time in this work. This biosensor(More)
The involvement of GALNT12 in colorectal carcinogenesis has been demonstrated but it is not clear to what extent it is implicated in familial CRC susceptibility. Partially inactivating variant, NM_024642.4:c.907G>A, p.(D303N), has been previously detected in familial CRC and proposed as the causative risk allele. Since phenotypes of the described carrier(More)
BACKGROUND Colonoscopy and fecal immunochemical testing (FIT) are accepted strategies for colorectal-cancer screening in the average-risk population. METHODS In this randomized, controlled trial involving asymptomatic adults 50 to 69 years of age, we compared one-time colonoscopy in 26,703 subjects with FIT every 2 years in 26,599 subjects. The primary(More)
