    Familial adenomatous polyposis (FAP) is an autosomal dominant inherited disease. Patients with FAP develop hundreds to thousands of adenomatous polyps in the colon and rectum during their 2nd or 3rd decades, and one or more of them progress to cancer if left without surgical treatment. The gene...

    Colorectal cancer (CRC) is one of the most common cancers in the Western world. Much has been learned about colorectal cancer from human inherited syndromes, such as familial adenomatous polyposis (FAP) and hereditary non-polyposis colorectal cancer (HNPCC). Mouse models for CRC were generated...
