Clinical Trial – Adjuvant Aspirin Treatment for Colon Cancer Patients – Colon Cancer

Following complete resection of their primary tumor, potentially eligible stage II or stage III colon cancer patients will undergo central PIK3CA testing. Patients with somatic mutations will be 2:1 randomized to daily aspirin 100 mg versus placebo for a total of 3 years or until disease recurrence, patient death or withdrawal of consent, whichever occurs first. Patients will be followed up for 10 years from the date of surgery.

The intake of aspirin or placebo is independent of adjuvant chemotherapy, and does not impact on the indication to give (or not to give) adjuvant chemotherapy.
