About the Edition

In a clinic-based study we examine the prevalence of germline MYH mutations in multiple colorectal adenoma patients. Homozygous and compound heterozygous germline MYH mutations were identified in 30% of patients, and 67% carried mutations other than Y165C and G382D. Our results indicate that MYH mutation screening in patients with multiple colorectal adenomas should include the entire MYH gene.Mutations in the MYH gene, a member of the base excision repair pathway, have been associated with the development of colorectal adenomas and cancer as an autosomal recessive disease. In a population-based study of colorectal cancer cases and healthy controls we demonstrate an association between germline MYH mutations and an increased risk of colorectal cancer, and provide evidence for a moderate increased risk in heterozygous carriers that suggests a codominant mode of transmission. We conclude that MYH mutations may account for 1.7% of all colorectal cancer cases in Ontario.

Cancer Risk Assessment and Counseling.

Comprehensive cancer risk assessment is a consultative service that includes clinical assessment, genetic testing when appropriate, and risk management recommendations delivered in the context of one or more genetic counseling sessions.

Pretest genetic counseling is an important part of the risk assessment process and helps patients. Professor Jenkins is the Director of the Centre for Epidemiology & Biostatistics, School of Population & Global Health, and he is a Group leader in the Centre for Cancer Research. He is an epidemiologist with 20 years' experience in the design, conduct, and analysis of studies examining the role of genetic and environmental causes of cancer, and the prevention and early detection of colorectal.

In the study performed by St John, cancers diagnosed in family members were verified as far as possible through medical and pathological records.5 Examination of the risk of colorectal cancer in relatives showed that, overall, relatives had a fold increased risk of colorectal cancer as compared to the general population.

Cancer Epidemiol Biomarkers Prev. Lynch syndrome, an eponym honoring Dr. Henry Lynch, is also called Hereditary Non polyposis Colorectal Cancer. Lynch syndrome is the most common hereditary cause of CRC, accounting for up to 2 % – 4 % of all cases.

It is an autosomal dominant syndrome caused by a germline muta- tion in one of the mismatch repair (MMR) genes (MLH1, MSH2, MSH6, and PMS2). Genetics of Colorectal Cancer John D. Potter • Noralane M.
