“Cancer can take your physical abilities, but not your heart, mind, and soul.”
Recent reports show that
The overall effect of colorectal cancer has fallen about 2 per cent annually over the two decades while the early-onset of colorectal cancer has risen.
The percentage has shown…
Adults aged 20-49: Colorectal cancer has increased to 1.5 per cent annually
Younger people aged 20-29: The annual percentage of colorectal cancer has been 5.2 per cent in men and 5.6 per cent in women
On seeing this increase what did the research leaders do? Let’s discuss that!
Taking that into consideration, the research leaders have set up an agenda near the University of Colorado Cancer Center on the Anschutz Medical Campus through a workshop organized by the patient empowerment group to set research priorities.
Highlights of the event!
It has four goals which are mainly to be discussed.
Possibility behind the increase!
Additional risk factors as a whole!
Other increased and decreased risk factors in general!
What did the field agree on!
During the periods in 1950 or 1960, there was an effect in the birth cohort- people born before this period had a decreasing rate on early-onset colorectal cancer. However, people born after this point had an increasing rate.
But the actual goal now is to understand what created this inflection to find out the treatment behind it!
Perspective underlying it!
Understanding the priorities of the research and working with funders and policymakers to put this research into effect. This will help in telling the people about it that “Here is the roadmap and what comes out of this, we want to make it actionable.”
Conclusion of the event!
With 40 researchers from leading research institutions are together to do something about the incidence of early-onset colorectal cancer. Hopefully, some effective treatment or preservation method will surely come out to decrease the risk or cure it.
