Prof Sir John Burn – Institute of Genetic Medicine, Newcastle, UK

Prof Sir Burn speaks with ecancertv at the 2016 BACR and ECMC Joint Meeting about the mechanism by which aspirin can prevent colorectal cancer.

He describes the CaPP studies for the intervention and prevention of colorectal cancers, using patients with an identified genetic predisposition towards certain types of cancer as a pre-diagnosed population, and how this can benefit wider health care.

With the example of aspirin, Prof Sir Burn describes ongoing studies of different dosage to determine its minimum level for cancer prevention, especially for high-risk subgroups.
