Using the right test for the right person to detect bowel cancer
A new online tool, developed by the University of Melbourne, uses personalised risk to detect bowel cancers earlier and with greater precision.
Who needs a colonoscopy most?
An online triage calculator to identify patients who need their colonoscopy most urgently, has been developed by researchers including University of Melbourne.
Personalising bowel cancer detection
Genomic testing can help guide bowel cancer screening, but would people take a test predicting their personalised risk ask University of Melbourne experts.
What's gone wrong with managing bowel cancer in Australia?
Using four different approaches, University of Melbourne researchers aim to save thousands of lives from bowel cancer - one of our most preventable cancers.
Are we overusing chemoradiotherapy in some bowel cancers?
In some bowel cancers clinicians are using chemoradiotherapy on patients before surgery when University of Melbourne research suggests it's not necessary
The blood test tracking down microscopic cancer DNA
A new blood test, co-developed by the University of Melbourne, can identify microscopic cancer DNA – which can tell us whether chemotherapy is necessary or not.
Rethinking gastrointestinal cancer diagnosis
Colonoscopies are being overused for cancer diagnosis says University of Melbourne expert, and while new techniques are coming, we can better use stool tests.
A chip off the DNA block
Researchers identify genetic markers that can help fight cancer before it begins. This can lead to earlier intervention and, hopefully, personalised prevention.
