    Patients with inflammatory bowel disease are at an increased risk of developing colorectal cancer. These patients should undergo surveillance colonoscopy for detection of dysplasia or adenoma. Studies have demonstrated that chromoendoscopy is the most effective technique for detection of...

    BACKGROUND AND AIMS: Previous studies have suggested a chemopreventive effect of 5-aminosalicylic acid (5-ASA) therapy in patients with inflammatory bowel disease (IBD). This effect has not been reported in IBD patients using thiopurines. We investigated the association between thiopurine or...

Rubenstein et al, published in the September 2009 issue of the "American Journal of Gastroenterology." The study...

    OBJECTIVES: Patients with extensive, longstanding chronic ulcerative or Crohn's colitis face greater risks of developing colorectal cancer. Current standard surveillance relies on detecting dysplasia using random sampling at colonoscopy but may fail to detect dysplasia in many patients. Dye...

    Chronic mucosal inflammation and tissue damage predisposes patients to the development of colorectal cancer. This association could be explained by the hypothesis that the same factors and pathways important for wound healing also promote tumorigenesis. A sensor of tissue damage should induce...

    Two studies examining the incidence of and mortality associated with colorectal adenocarcinoma (CRC) in IBD patients have recently been published in Gastroenterology. This is an important and often controversial topic in IBD, and these two studies are of particular interest as they appear to...
