Cardiovascular events associated with rofecoxib in a colorectal adenoma chemoprevention trial.
Among patients with a history of colorectal adenomas, the use of rofecoxib was associated with an increased cardiovascular risk, and cardiovascular mortality was similar in the two groups.
Design of the Prostate, Lung, Colorectal and Ovarian (PLCO) Cancer Screening Trial.
A randomized trial of aspirin to prevent colorectal adenomas.
Low-dose aspirin has a moderate chemopreventive effect on adenomas in the large bowel, using generalized linear models to compute risk ratios and 95 percent confidence intervals.
Folic acid for the prevention of colorectal adenomas: a randomized clinical trial.
Folic acid at 1 mg/d does not reduce colorectal adenoma risk and is associated with higher risks of having 3 or more adenomas and of noncolorectAL cancers.
Utility of PET, CT, and EUS to identify pathologic responders in esophageal cancer.
Colorectal-cancer incidence and mortality with screening flexible sigmoidoscopy.
Screening with flexible sigmoidoscopy was associated with a significant decrease in colorectal-cancer incidence (in both the distal and proximal colon) and mortality (distal colon only).
Mucins and mucin binding proteins in colorectal cancer
Colon cancer mucins have differences in both core carbohydrates and in peripheral carbohydrate structures that are being investigated as diagnostic and prognostic markers, and also as targets for cancer vaccines.
Value of baseline positron emission tomography for predicting overall survival in patient with nonmetastatic esophageal or gastroesophageal junction carcinoma
The authors tested the hypothesis that the number of PET abnormalities (NPA) would correlate with OS and DFS in patients with nondistant metastatic esophageal carcinoma.

Tumor growth, angiogenesis, and spontaneous metastasis in vivo were statistically significantly reduced in mice fed MCP, presumably via its effects on galectin-3 function, and the importance of dietary carbohydrate compounds as agents for the prevention and/or treatment of cancer is stressed.
Adherence to the USDA Food Guide, DASH Eating Plan, and Mediterranean dietary pattern reduces risk of colorectal adenoma.
Following the current U.S. dietary recommendations or a Mediterranean dietary pattern is associated with reduced risk of colorectal adenoma, especially in men.
