The risk reduction is apparently entirely due to a reduction in deaths from left-sided cancers.

Based on the researchers, complete colonoscopy was strongly connected with fewer deaths from left-sided colorectal cancer. Conversely, the data showed that colonoscopy seemed to have almost no mortality prevention advantage for right-sided colorectal cancer. ‘Colonoscopy is an effective intervention,’ stated David F. Ransohoff, MD, author of an accompanying editorial. ‘The study results, however, should caution doctors about stating that colonoscopy shall decrease the threat of dying from colorectal cancer by 90 %. A 60 to 70 % risk-reduction rate seems more reasonable.’ Related StoriesSausages With Antioxidants From Berries TO AVOID CancerViralytics enters into clinical trial collaboration contract with MSDCornell biomedical engineers develop 'super natural killer cells' to destroy tumor cells in lymph nodesThe experts suggest the key reason why colonoscopy may be less effective in avoiding loss of life from right-sided colorectal cancer.Implants in past due February/early March.
