Colorectal Cancer News in Brief: April 17

This week we have research reports about risk of complications after hand-assisted laparoscopic colectomies, the benefit of music therapy during hospice treatment, and a gene that predicts better response to cetuximab. In other headlines, we found an excellent overview of the progress made in colorectal cancer treatment with data and references.  In addition, there is information about management of colonoscopy sedation in HIV patients receiving antiretroviral medicines and a lifting of the FDA ban on concentrated liquid morphine for terminally ill patients until an acceptable substitute can be found.
