Use of Antibiotics Linked to Higher Risk of Colon Cancer

According to new research, published in the journal Gut, use of antibiotics in pills and capsules is associated with the higher risk of colon cancer but lower risk of rectal cancer at the same time. Researchers say this risk depends on the type and class of antibiotics prescribed.

The researchers drew on data submitted to the nationally representative Clinical Practice Research Datalink (CPRD) between 1989 and 2012 which included the records of approximately 11.3 mln people from 674 general practices which is about 7% of the population of the United Kingdom.

The authors of the study conclude in their paper: “Whether antibiotic exposure is causal or contributory to colon cancer risk, our results highlight the importance of judicious antibiotic use by clinicians.”
