A gut feeling: microbiome changes may mean early detection of colorectal cancer
7.6.2019 Osaka University Press Release | More information...

A group of researchers from Osaka University have recently reported increases in specific microbiome organisms that are linked to the malignancies associated with colorectal cancer, such as intramucosal carcinomas and polypoid adenomas. Their results, recently published in Nature Medicine Letters, reveal that these specific markers could help distinguish cases of colorectal cancer from healthy samples [1].

Millions of Europeans at risk of chronic digestive diseases, new report reveals
21.5.2019 UEG Press Release | More information...

Poor nutritional choices, including a high intake of ultra-processed foods and trans-fats, are putting millions of Europeans at an increased risk of a range of chronic digestive diseases, including digestive cancers, wheat related disorders and functional GI disorders, as well as obesity, a new report shows [1].

Statins linked to lower risk of early death in patients with colorectal cancer
9.5.2019 Wiley Press Release | More information...

Use of statins before or after a diagnosis of colorectal cancer was linked with a lower risk of premature death, both from cancer and from other causes, in a Cancer Medicine analysis of published studies [1].

Global microbial signatures for colorectal cancer
1.4.2019 EMBL Press Release | More information...
Cancers have long been known to arise due to environmental exposures such as unhealthy diet or smoking. Lately, the microbes living in and on our body have entered the stage as key players: while stomach cancer can be caused by a single bacterial species, Helicobacter pylori, the role that gut microbes play in the development of colorectal cancer – the third most common cancer worldwide – is less clear. To determine their influence, association studies aim to map how the microbes colonizing the gut of colorectal cancer patients are different from those that inhabit healthy subjects.
Colon cancer growth reduced by exercise
28.2.2019 The Physiological Society Press Release | More information...

Exercise may play a role in reducing the growth of colon cancer cells according to new research published in The Journal of Physiology [1]. The study found that after a short session of high intensity interval training (HIIT), growth of colon cancer cells was reduced, and this also increased indicators of inflammation.
