Hereditary Gene Mutation May Be Driving Colon Cancer

New data from researchers at the Mayo Clinic found that one in six patients with colon cancer had an inherited cancer-related gene mutation. Researchers enrolled 361 patients being treated for colorectal cancer between 2018 and 2020. Patients underwent germline testing with an >80 gene next-generation sequencing platform. The researchers identified pathogenic germline variants (PGV) in … Continue reading Hereditary Gene Mutation May Be Driving Colon Cancer
