Results of a new phase 3 study show promising results for a two-drug combination in reducing the need for surgery in patients with familial adenomatous polyposis (FAP).
Scientists and clinicians from Cleveland Clinic and Case Western Reserve University received a $1.15 million grant from the NCI to develop AI tools that assist in the differentiation of tumor recurrence versus scar tissue on postoperative MRI scans in patients with certain colorectal and brain cancers.
A prototype blood-based screening test evaluated by Cleveland Clinic researchers and others can accurately detect and localize multiple types of cancer, often before symptoms show. The promising results raise hopes that the assay will help achieve the long-sought goal of population-scale early detection of cancer.
The increased numbers of small, precancerous non-advanced adenomas that are detected with high-definition colonoscopes do not appear to pose a heightened risk of metachronous advanced neoplasia, Cleveland Clinic researchers have determined, raising the prospect of a longer colonoscopy surveillance interval for these patients.

By following appropriate guidelines, endoscopists can achieve high-quality screening colonoscopies no matter whether their specialty is gastroenterology or colorectal surgery, Cleveland Clinic research shows. Regular evaluation is important to improve outcomes.
A case report with unique intraoperative endoscopic images details the endoscopic removal of more than 65 polyps from the small intestine of a patient with Peutz-Jeghers Syndrome.
An organotypic model is helping researchers better understand disease processes in ulcerative colitis and colorectal cancer.
Universal screening for endometrial cancer, begun in 2012 at Cleveland Clinic, has helped build one of the largest prospective cohorts of screened patients, providing fertile ground for studying Lynch syndrome.
Cleveland Clinic colorectal surgeons Matthew Kalady, MD, and Steven Wexner, MD, explain what The National Accreditation Program for Rectal Cancer means to patients and clinicians.
An investigation of tumor biology presented at ASCRS 2018 clearly shows the relationship of age with disparate neoplastic pathways, and with left- vs. right-sided tumors.
