We looked at changes in 18 genes that play a role in the earliest stages of colorectal cancers.

Researchers at IFR are discovering the chance that such mistakes in the epigenetic code may begin to occur in apparently normal tissues, long before the looks of a tumour.

They found delicate changes that could make the whole surface area of the bowel more vulnerable to the eventual development of tumours by causing the ‘addiction’ of cells to irregular gene expression.‘Montefiore is focused on making certain our patients get access to the greatest & most ground-breaking remedies,’ said Steven M. Safyer MD, CEO and President of Montefiore INFIRMARY.’With our partner, Albert Einstein University of Medicine, we’ve established the Office of Clinical trials , to aid promising investigators and experts in their quest for new knowledge to boost the health and well-being of the patients.’ ‘The OCT will not only increase the scope and level of scientific trial activity at Einstein and Montefiore, but motivate young faculty to take part in clinical and translational analysis also,’ stated Allen M. Spiegel, MD, the Marilyn and Stanley M. Katz Dean of Einstein. ‘This collaboration is definitely paramount in our efforts to really improve health outcomes.’ The Office of Clinical Trials is located on the eighth floor of the Moses Analysis Tower on the Moses Campus, and on the fifth ground of the Mazer building on the Einstein Campus..
