Endoscopists recommend frequent colonoscopies, leading to its overuse
A retrospective study led by researchers at Brigham and Women's Hospital, has found an overuse of colonoscopies for colorectal cancer screening and surveillance. The study demonstrated that endoscopists commonly recommended shorter follow-up intervals than established guidelines support, and these recommendations were strongly correlated with subsequent colonoscopy overuse.

Medical professional liability claims and esophageal cancer screening
An analysis of liability claims related to esophageal cancer screening finds that the risks of claims arising from acts of commission -- complications from screening procedure -- as well as acts of omission -- failure to screen -- are similarly low, according to a study in the Oct. 1 issue of JAMA.

Americans undergo colonoscopies too often, study finds
Colonoscopies are a very valuable procedure by which to screen for the presence of colorectal cancer. However, it seems that healthy Americans who do undergo this sometimes uncomfortable examination often have repeat screenings long before they actually should. Gina Kruse of Massachusetts General Hospital in the US and colleagues advise that endoscopists stick to the national guidelines more closely. Their findings appear in the Journal of General Internal Medicine, published by Springer.

Genetic test for cancer patients could be cost-effective and prevent further cases
Screening for a genetic condition in younger people who are diagnosed with bowel cancer would be cost-effective for the British National Health Service and prevent new cases in them and their relatives, new research has concluded.

New blood test determines whether you have or are likely to get cancer
A new research report published in the October 2014 issue of the FASEB Journal may make early detection and the risk assessment of cancer as easy as a simple blood test.

Cancer therapy: Driving cancer cells to suicide
Researchers of Ludwig-Maximilians-Universitaet in Munich report that a new class of chemical compounds makes cancer cells more sensitive to chemotherapeutic drugs. They have also pinpointed the relevant target enzyme, thus identifying a new target for anti-tumor agents.

NEJM: Crizotinib effective in Phase 1 trial against ROS1 lung cancer
In this multi-center study of 50 patients with advanced non-small cell lung cancer testing positive for ROS1 gene rearrangement, the response rate was 72 percent, with 3 complete responses and 33 partial responses. Median progression-free survival was 19.2 months.
