Germline genetic testing finds heritable gene mutations in colorectal cancer

Multi-gene panel testing in colorectal cancer led to significant detection of heritable gene mutations compared with guideline-based testing, according to research published in Clinical Gastroenterology and Hepatology.“Identification of genes related to the development or inheritance of cancer can have important implications in the selection of targeted treatments and in the screening of affected populations. The prevalence of germline genomic alterations related to the development of colorectal carcinoma has been assessed in multiple studies with estimates of at least 10% of CRC patients,”Read More
