Distinct epidemiological and clinicopathological characteristics of colorectal carcinomas (CRCs) based on their anatomical location suggest different risk factors and pathways of transformation associated with proximal and distal colon carcinogenesis. These differences may reflect distinct biological characteristics of proximal and distal colonic mucosa,(More)
Aberrant crypt foci (ACF) are considered the earliest identifiable preneoplastic colonic lesions; thus, a greater understanding of the nature of genetic changes underlying the transformation of normal colonic mucosa (NM) into ACF may provide insight into the mechanisms of carcinogenesis. ACF were identified by indigo carmine spraying onto colonic mucosa(More)
To determine the toxicities and pharmacokinetic effects of eniluracil (EU) given on two weekly dosing schedules with 5-fluorouracil (5-FU) and leucovorin (LV). A group of 26 patients received a single 24-h i.v. infusion of 5-FU 2300 mg/m2 to provide a pharmacokinetic reference. After 2 weeks, patients received oral EU 20 mg plus LV 30 mg on days 1–3 with a(More)
A clinical trial was recently conducted to evaluate the safety and efficacy of a selective inhibitor of cyclooxygenase-2 (celecoxib) in hereditary nonpolyposis colon cancer patients. In a randomized, placebo-controlled phase I/II multicenter trial, hereditary nonpolyposis colon cancer patients and gene carriers received either celecoxib at one of two doses(More)
