Brennan, Beatrice; Hemmings, Chris; Clark, Ian; Yip, Desmond; Fadia, Mitali; Taupin, Douglas

Description

Background: Lynch syndrome (LS) due to an inherited damaging mutation in mismatch repair (MMR) genes comprises 3% of all incident colorectal cancer (CRC). Molecular testing using immunohistochemistry (IHC) for MMR proteins is a recommended screening tool to identify LS in incident CRC. This study assessed outcomes of population-based routine molecular screening for diagnosis of LS in a regional center. Methods: We conducted a prospective, consecutive case series study of universal IHC testing...[Show more]
