Study Title:

NCCTG-GLNE 010: Validation and Comparison of Biomarkers for the Early Detection of Colorectal Adenocarcinoma

What is the purpose of the study?

Colon cancer is the second most common cancer in both men and women. It is a disease that can be prevented if it is found early. Colonoscopy is still the best screening tool for colon cancer and the polyps that can lead to colon cancer. However, some people do not like to get or cannot afford to get colonoscopies for a variety of reasons. Researchers are looking for other ways to find colon cancer and the polyps that lead to colon cancer that are as useful and accurate as colonoscopy. We are searching for biomarkers in the blood, urine and stool of a healthy person that could be used to reveal the presence of colorectal cancer before symptoms become apparent.
