OBJECTIVE To develop a risk score model for APN and propose an individualized screening protocol for colorectal cancer. DESIGN Retrospective cohort study. SETTING Tertiary-care center. PATIENTS Derivation cohort (6200 adults) and validation cohort (1389 adults). INTERVENTION Screening colonoscopy. MAIN OUTCOME MEASUREMENTS An APN risk score model was developed from the… CONTINUE READING
