    Abstract : Corlorectal cancer affects 5% of individuals in the Western world and heredity is estimated to cause at least 10% of the tumors. Defective mismatch repair (MMR) is a tumorigenic mechanism through which about 15% of colorectal cancer develops and this feature characterizes tumors associated with Hereditary Nonpolyposis Colorectal Cancer (HNPCC) or Lynch syndrome.

    Abstract : Colorectal cancer (CRC) is the third most common cancer in the world, with about 5000 new cases in Sweden every year. CRC is caused by mutation (inherited or acquired) in genes, by gene variants and changed expression of proteins. The primary way to achieve a curative result for CRC is to remove the tumor by surgery. READ MORE
