Abstract

Colorectal cancer is the second leading cause of cancer death in the U.S.A. Recent research suggests that nonsteroidal anti-inflammatory drugs (NSAIDs) are effective in the prevention of colorectal neoplasia. This review summarises the results of research in animals and humans of these compounds in preventing tumours of the colorectum.
