Carcinoma of large bowel in the young

British Medical Journal
A Van Langenberg, G B Ong

Abstract

The incidence of large-bowel carcinoma in young people seems to be increasing. Twenty-one cases occurring between the ages of 13 and 25 are reviewed. Most cases were found to be in an advanced state of the disease. High grade malignant growths were found to be twice as common in the young as in adults. The mode of presentation is no different from that in adults and a plea is made for improving results of treatment by earlier diagnosis, which can be established by an increased awareness of the disease in children and young adults.

COVID-19

Coronaviruses encompass a large family of viruses that cause the common cold as well as more serious diseases, such as the ongoing outbreak of coronavirus disease 2019 (COVID-19; formally known as 2019-nCoV). Coronaviruses can spread from animals to humans; symptoms include fever, cough, shortness of breath, and breathing difficulties; in more severe cases, infection can lead to death. This feed covers recent research on COVID-19.

Cell Atlas Along the Gut-Brain Axis

Profiling cells along the gut-brain axis at the single cell level will provide unique information for each cell type, a three-dimensional map of how cell types work together to form tissues, and insights into how changes in the map underlie health and disease of the GI system and its crosstalk with the brain. Disocver the latest research on single cell analysis of the gut-brain axis here.
