Colon Cancer Screening

Biofilm Epidemiology and Mechanisms of Colon Cancer

Johns Hopkins Primary Investigator: Cynthia Sears, MD

Reading Hospital Primary Investigator: Louis LaLuna, MD

This research is being done to learn more about why people get colon cancer. We are looking to identify specific bacteria in the colon that may be linked to the development of colon cancer, and small biopsies will be taken along with other samples to look for these bacteria. This study is closed to enrollment.
