    A study has found that flat adenomas in the colon originate in monocryptal adenomas and clonally expand by superficial budding without significant "top down" spread. Controversy exists concerning the mode of expansion of colorectal adenomas. The Vogeistein group champion the "top down" theory...

    The top down concept of the clonal expansion of colorectal odenomas has been quick to seize the imagination of workers in the field. In this article a large cohort of different adenoma types is analyzed to establish its prevalence. It was found that top down spread is rare and associated with a...
