C. Richard Boland, MD

The Best of AGA is part of our signature two-hour session, the Best of DDW, presented each year on Tuesday. Moderated by Digestive Disease Week® (DDW) Council Chair, Grace H. Elta, MD, AGAF, FASGE, a discussant from each of the four societies reviewed the top presentations of the latest, best and most thought-provoking research presented all week.

C. Richard Boland, MD, professor of medicine at the University of California, San Diego, School of Medicine, selected eight of the top abstracts from AGA to discuss. The reviewed abstracts covered topics including:

  • The use of NSAIDs to reduce post-colonoscopy CRC.
  • Long-term PPI use and the risk of gastrointestinal cancers.
  • Using a circular RNA signature to diagnose early-stage gastric cancers.
