This article presents abstracts on several topics including hyponatremia, ulcerative colitis, and colorectal cancer. Studies revealed that chemoprevention of colorectal cancer with aminosalicylates is logical due to their anti-inflammatory effects and their action in COX-2 inhibition. It discusses that stress is a significant risk factor for flares of colitis.

    Chronic infection and associated inflammation are key contributors to human carcinogenesis. Ulcerative colitis (UC) is an oxyradical overload disease and is characterized by free radical stress and colon cancer proneness. Here we examined tissues from noncancerous colons of ulcerative colitis...
