In a world where cancer is the second leading cause of death, it’s important to have new ways that can help detect and treat these diseases early on. One such technique would be liquid biopsy- an innovative form of testing blood samples for signs of cancer.
Colon cancer is the third leading cause of death from cancer in the United States. Colorectal cancer usually starts from polyps or other precancerous growths in the rectum or the colon (large intestine). As part of a colorectal cancer screening and surveillance plan, clinicians perform colonoscopies to detect changes or abnormalities in the lining of the colon and rectum. A colonoscopy involves threading an endoscope (thin, flexible tube with a camera at the end), through the rectum and throughout the entire length of the colon, allowing a clinician to see signs of cancer or precancerous lesions.
The team of clinicians at Encore Borland Groover Clinical Research (EBGCR) is exploring new ways to detect and prevent colon cancer.
Hepatocellular carcinoma is the most common form of liver cancer. The risk of hepatocellular carcinoma, the most common type of liver cancer, is higher in patients with long-term liver diseases. It is a serious illness that can be life-threatening.

Atopic dermatitis is a chronic, inflammatory skin disease that results in widespread rashes and patches of itchy skin, most commonly around the neck, face, and eyes in adults. It is uniquely and strongly associated with an individual or family history of asthma, hay fever, food allergy, and other allergic diseases. The most common form of eczema, atopic dermatitis symptoms can cause discomfort, depression, and sleep disturbance.

Early CRC detection saves lives.
Are you due for your next colonoscopy within the next 90 days? Join this study to help us develop a blood test that accurately and easily detects colorectal cancer (CRC). According to the CDC, early detection can dramatically improve survival rates. That’s why we are looking to validate a simple blood test for early CRC detection.
Gastroesophageal Reflux Disease (GERD)
The most common symptoms of GERD are acid indigestion and heartburn. Heartburn is normal. Frequent and problematic heartburn should be reviewed with your gastroenterologist.
Patients with severe gastroesophageal reflux disease (GERD) may experience complications such as damage to the esophagus, Barrett’s esophagus or esophageal cancer.
