Background: We have recently shown that the severity of human colonic familial adenomatous polyposis (FAP) varies in a manner consistent with the action of modifier genes. These modifier genes may harbour common alleles which increase the risk of colorectal cancer (CRC) in the general population. Analyses have suggested several common polymorphisms as risk alleles for CRC. Methods: We determined the association between the severity of colonic FAP (151 patients) and polymorphisms in MTHFR, NAT1, NAT2, GSTM, GSTT, cyclin Dl, E-cadherin, and APC. All of these loci have been suggested as influencing the risk of CRC. Colonic FAP severity was quantitated as the number of polyps per colectomy specimen, standardised for colon size. We analysed the relationship between disease severity and genotype at the polymorphic site, making allowance for the position of the germline APC mutation. Results: We identified significant associations between more severe disease and the absence of the NAT1*10 genotype in the whole group of patients. In a subset of patients with germline mutations in the so-called "mutation cluster region", there was an association between more severe disease and the presence of NAT2* fast alleles. In the whole patient set, a relatively strong association existed between more severe disease and possession of both the NAT1 *10 and NAT2*fast genotypes. There was weak evidence for an association between the APCT7493C allele and more severe disease in the whole patient group. No consistent association with disease severity was found for the other polymorphisms. Conclusion: The severity of colonic FAP may be modified by alleles at the NAT1 and/or NAT2 loci. The identity of any functional variation remains unknown as NAT1*10 appears to be non-functional and there is linkage disequilibrium between alleles at multiple sites within these loci which are adlacent on chromosome 8p22. While evidence from this study cannot be conclusive, our data suggest that NAT! and NAT2 variants may explain an approximately twofold increase in polyp number in the FAP colon.

    In colorectal cancer (CRC), an inherited susceptibility risk affects about 35% of patients, whereas high-penetrance germline mutations account for <6% of cases. A considerable proportion of sporadic tumors could be explained by the coinheritance of multiple low-penetrance variants, some of which...
