    Background: Estimates suggest that up to 30% of colorectal cancers (CRC) may develop due to an increased genetic risk. The mean age at diagnosis for CRC is about 70 years. Time of disease onset 20 years younger than the mean age is assumed to be indicative of genetic susceptibility. We have...

  • Current clinical criteria for Lynch syndrome are not sensitive enough to identify MSH6 mutation carriers. Sjursen, Wenche; Haukanes, Bjørn Ivar; Grindedal, Eli Marie; Aarset, Harald; Stormorken, Astrid; Engebretsen, Lars F.; Jonsrud, Christoffer; Bjørnevoll, Inga; Andresen, Per Arne; Ariansen, Sarah; Lavik, Liss Anne S.; Gilde, Bodil; Bowitz-Lothe, Inger Marie; Mæhle, Lovise; Møller, Pål // Journal of Medical Genetics;Sep2010, Vol. 47 Issue 9, p1 

    Background Reported prevalence, penetrance and expression of deleterious mutations in the mismatch repair (MMR) genes, MLH1, MSH2, MSH6 and PMS2, may reflect differences in the clinical criteria used to select families for DNA testing. The authors have previously reported that clinical criteria...

    Sporadic colorectal cancers with microsatellite instability (MSI) frequently contain a mutation of the BRAF gene. Additionally, it has been shown that BRAF mutations in colorectal cancers are mutually exclusive of KRAS mutation. We evaluated 14 cases of colorectal cancer with MSI that were BRAF...

    Mutations in PIK3CA are present in 10 to 15% of colorectal carcinomas. We aimed to examine how PIK3CA mutations relate to other molecular alterations in colorectal carcinoma, to pathologic phenotype and survival. PIK3CA mutation testing was carried out using direct sequencing on 757 incident...

    Background and Aims: Pancreatic cancer risk is increased in Lynch syndrome (LS) patients with mismatch repair gene defects predisposing to colonic and extracolonic cancers with microsatellite instability (MSI). However, the frequency of MSI pancreatic cancers has never been ascertained in...
