Metachronous tumours, although potentially amenable to surgery, are relatively uncommon. 3 Contrast enhanced computed tomogram (arterial phase) showing solitary liver metastasis Wrong intervention? In contrast, liver metastases are much more common. Furthermore, these metastases are confined to the liver in about a quarter of patients. Perhaps, therefore, the emphasis should shift towards the early detection of liver metastases. It is worth noting that in contemporary studies of liver resection, mortality is less than 5% and about 35% of patients survive five years.

2 Cell mediated immunity against tumours. Tumour antigens are taken up and processed by antigen presenting cells (APC) and re-presented to class II receptors on T helper cells. This requires a costimulatory signal, B7, which binds to the CD28 ligand, causing T helper cell activation. This leads to secretion of cytokines, which in turn activates cytotoxic lymphocytes to bind to tumour cells via class I receptors and causes tumour lysis Innovative treatment for colon cancer Vaccination with autologous tumour cells This approach uses cells derived from the patient’s tumour to elicit a cell mediated immune response against the tumour.

Oral fluorouracil prodrugs and modulators Fluoropyrimidine analogues have been developed with reliable oral bioavailability. In addition, oral inhibitors of fluorouracil catabolism can facilitate oral dosing. Preliminary data show similar effectiveness and lower toxicity compared with fluorouracil. Given the convenience and potential cost savings, oral therapy may soon find a place in routine practice. Irinotecan and oxaliplatin Irinotecan is a camptothecin analogue that acts through the inhibition of a DNA unwinding enzyme, topoisomerase I, resulting in replication arrest with breaks in single strand DNA.
