This Week's Colorectal Cancer News in Brief: April 3

This week we have research  information about an ingredient in licorice that reduces the development of colon polyps and colorectal cancer and a review of the effects of Avastin® (bevacizumab) given with chemotherapy before surgery to remove liver mets. There are links to a digital edition of CR Magazine, video blogs by Dr. John Marshall from Georgetown University, and information about changes to Medicare Advantage plans in 2010 to simplify choices and ensure that the sickest Medicare beneficiaries are not discriminated against.  We also report FDA warnings to manufacturers of some unapproved narcotic drugs to stop manufacturing and distributing them.
