New method makes it possible to identify a higher fraction of the colorectal cancer patients with aggressive disease

Researchers from Aarhus University Hospital and Aarhus University in Denmark have invented a molecular method to detect aggressive colorectal cancer that does not require costly collection of additional tissue samples from each patient. Potentially, this allows a higher number of patients with colorectal cancer to be analysed molecularly to help identify those with particular aggressive cancer.
