Randomised study of screening for colorectal cancer with faecal-occult-blood test
The findings indicate that biennial screening by FOB tests can reduce CRC mortality, and the effect of the removal of more precursor adenomas in the screening-group participants than in controls on CRC incidence. Expand
A prospective randomized study of follow‐up after radical surgery for colorectal cancer
This study investigated whether survival is improved by frequent follow‐up examinations after curative surgery for colorectal cancer and found that the answer was yes. Expand
Calcium and fibre supplementation in prevention of colorectal adenoma recurrence: a randomised intervention trial
BACKGROUND Some epidemiological studies have suggested that high dietary intake of calcium and fibre reduces colorectal carcinogenesis. Available data are not sufficient to serve as a basis for firmExpand
Choice of management strategy for colorectal cancer based on a diagnostic immunohistochemical test for defective mismatch repair
This is the first simple laboratory test which can be performed routinely on all CRCs and will provide a method for selecting patients who should be investigated for HNPCC, offered long term follow up, and who may not respond to standard chemotherapy regimens. Expand
A randomised study of screening for colorectal cancer using faecal occult blood testing: results after 13 years and seven biennial screening rounds
The persistent reduction in mortality from CRC in a biennial screening program with Hemoccult-II, and a reduction in RR to less than 0.70 in those adhering to the programme, support attempts to introduce larger scale population screening programmes. Expand
Chronic pilonidal disease: A randomized trial with a complete 3‐year follow‐up
Three treatments for chronic pilonidal disease were compared in a randomized trial and the total time of healing after initial surgery as well as excision of recurrences was significantly shorter after E + S than after E and tended to be even shorter afterE + S + C. Expand

Two treatments for fistula‐in‐ano were compared in a randomized trial and times of healing were significantly shorter when the fistula was laid open than after excision. Expand
Faecal calprotectin levels in a high risk population for colorectal neoplasia
The sensitivity and specificity of faecal calprotectin levels as a marker for colorectal adenoma and carcinoma justifies its use in high risk groups, but specificity is too low for screening of average risk persons. Expand
Randomized study of biennial screening with a faecal occult blood test: results after nine screening rounds
Efficacy in those screened supports the introduction of countrywide screening in Denmark, but it must be ascertained that acceptability, proportion of early CRC and logistics all reach the same standard as in the randomized trial. Expand
Recurrence and survival after mesorectal excision for rectal cancer
The results of a prospective Danish study with a historical control group showing Mesorectal excision for rectal cancer has resulted in local recurrence rates of 3–11 per cent compared with up to 38 per cent after conventional methods are presented. Expand
