Colorectal Cancer News in Brief: May 8

This week a panda gets a colonoscopy, details are reported on swine flu cases, and information about acrylamide in food and cancer risk is reviewed.  The FDA says that the leucovorin shortage has been resolved and supplies are available. We also found a study that used stereotactic body radiosurgery (SBRS) for tumors from cancer that had spread to the spine.  In other research, the number of lymph nodes recovered during colon and rectal surgery depends on the patient’s age, where the cancer was located, and how long the removed specimen was.
