COX inhibition for individualized adjuvant treatment after excision of high-risk colonic adenomas.
We are continously working on projects and one of our aims is to investigate if the polyacetylenes Falcarinol and Falcarindiol from selected carrot cultivars prevent neoplastic transformation and growth in humans, with the benefit of having no side effects. The selective COX-2 inhibitory effect and the antineoplastic effect has been described in both human cancer cell lines and in rats primed to develop bowel cancer.
We hope that we can individualise the treatment of patients with high-risk polyps in the colon.
We are very happy to welcome Dr. Anastasios Koulaouzidis as Professor in our SATCC team. We have previously collaborated on symposiums and courses, so we look forward to welcome you in the research unit.
Anastasios (alias Tassos) is 50 years old and a medical gastroenterologist, who received his doctorate in 1995, and has lived and worked in Edinburgh, Scotland for the past 10 years. He has a very broad international network. He also received a PhD degree from Lund University in 2020
He is currently an internationally recognized clinician and researcher in the fields of lower endoscopy, camera capsule technology, gastroenterology and early intervention against colorectal cancer. One of his primary goals is to bridge the gap between the clinic and technological solutions in diagnostic procedures, particularly camera capsule technology. He already has over 225 pub-med registered publications despite never having had dedicated research time.
