    Background: Veterans Affairs (VA) Cooperative Study 380 showed that some advanced colorectal neoplasias (i.e., adenomas at least 1 cm in diameter, villous adenomas, adenomas with high-grade dysplasia, or cancer) in men would be missed with the use of flexible sigmoidoscopy but detected by...

    We have evaluated the frequency of KRAS gene mutations during the critical transition from villous adenoma to colorectal carcinoma to assess whether the adenomas contain a KRAS mutation more frequently than carcinomas. We analyzed sporadic villous and tubulovillous adenomas, in situ carcinomas,...

    Investigates the association between the presence of skin tags and adenomatous polyps of the colon in a group of men and women. Characteristics of the skin tags identified in the group; Average of the men and women studied; Risk found for colonic polyps in a patient with skin tags; Incidence...

    The human cell lines VACO-235 and VACO-411 constitute a novel in vitro model of colon adenoma to carcinoma progression. By differential display RT-PCR we identified a transcript that is expressed in the parental nontumorigenic adenoma line (VACO-235E), but is not expressed in the tumorigenic...

    Background. Little is known about the molecular biological features of large flat tumors or laterally spreading tumors (LSTs) of the colon and rectum. Methods. The cyclooxygenase (COX)-2 protein expression level of LSTs was assessed immunohistochemically and compared with that of exophytic...

  • Villous Adenoma of the Colon. Baum, Alan E.; Arcomano, Joseph P. // American Journal of Gastroenterology;Jul1966, Vol. 46 Issue 1, p51 

    Villous adenomas most often are tumors of the aged which occur with equal frequency in either sex. They are tumors which occur in the rectum and rectosigmoid area primarily with rare cases having been reported in the cecum. They are soft, bulky tumors which are mucus-secreting and most often are...

    Background. Oxaliplatin in combination with 5-fluorouracil (5-FU) and leucovorin (FOLFOX) is a common chemotherapeutic regimen for advanced colorectal cancer. Here, we present a case of interstitial lung disease associated with FOLFOX therapy. Case report. A 74-year-old man with a history of...
