Colorectal Neoplasia

Learn about Accord's Colorectal Neoplasia Clinical Trials

Colorectal neoplasia affects the intestinal tractIf you have been diagnosed with colorectal cancer, than your doctor may encourage you to enroll in a colorectal neoplasia clinical trial. Colorectal cancer is actually one of the few cancers which is truly preventable. Clinical trials have helped scientists determine the best methods of treating colorectal neoplasia, which could be a combination of current medications, or a totally new therapeutic approach. Unfortunately, colon polyps (either benign or malignant) usually don’t produce any noticeable symptoms, or in other words are asymptomatic, during the earliest stages. Screening tests such as colonoscopy remain the best way to identify colorectal neoplasia at an earlier stage.

The colorectum is the section of the gastrointestinal (GI) tract that has the highest risk of developing a tumor. The most common form of tumor that forms in the colon is called a benign epithelial polyp. The word “polyp” is used to describe a portion of tissue that begins to protrude into the colonic lumen. While not all of these polyps become cancerous, the most common precursor for cancer is the adenomatous polyp. Various features, such as size and number, will predict the potential risk of colorectal neoplasia, including future malignancy.

Research does suggest that the average number of new cases of colorectal neoplasia have been decreasing annually over the last 30 years. Further studies support that this gradual reduction is the result of improved colorectal screening techniques and polyp removal. However, other studies have shown that less than 50 percent of Americans who should be undergoing screenings actually do. This is why colorectal cancer still remains such a deadly disease in the United States.

Colorectal neoplasia clinical trials are conducted in order to test experimental treatments and therapies which are being developed by pharmaceutical and biotechnical companies. More specifically, these studies help us test the safety and efficacy of these investigational treatments for humans. By choosing to enroll in our upcoming colorectal neoplasia clinical trial, you will be helping us gain a better understanding of a medical issue that threatens many lives.

Unfortunately, awareness levels of new clinical trial opportunities remains low in and around Port Orange, FL. Thus, there are many patients who miss out on studies for which they would have made perfect candidates. Additionally, there are still plenty of people who hold onto negative stigmas when it comes to the role of clinical research in our society. This is something we are working to dispel, but it takes significant time and effort.

The type of study being conducted by Accord Clinical Research directly reflects your involvement. Sometimes, participating in a research study is as simple as agreeing to let our researchers have a copy of your test results, but most will need you to be a little more involved with some scheduled tests and a visit to our clinic. However, all participants will be compensated for time and travel, and any study related care, including physical examinations, laboratory services and study medicines are all provided free of charge.
