New gene markers detect Lynch syndrome-associated colorectal cancer, Mayo Clinic study

By Susan Murphy Susan Murphy (@susanmurphy)

By Kelley Luckstein Researchers from Mayo Clinic Comprehensive Cancer Center and Mayo Clinic Center for Individualized Medicine have discovered new genetic markers to identify Lynch syndrome-associated colorectal cancer with high accuracy. Studies are underway to determine if these genetic markers are in stool samples and, if so, how this could lead to a non-invasive screening option for patients with Lynch […]

Mayo Clinic researchers study rare genetic condition to tackle colorectal cancer

By Susan Murphy Susan Murphy (@susanmurphy)

By Joe Dangor Researchers from the Mayo Clinic Comprehensive Cancer Center and the Mayo Clinic Center for Individualized Medicine are studying a rare genetic condition called Familial Adenomatous Polyposis (FAP) looking for potential ways to prevent colorectal cancer in the general population at an earlier more treatable stage. The researchers’ findings are published in GUT. “Colorectal cancer is the third most common […]

What you should know about genetics, colorectal cancer

By Susan Murphy Susan Murphy (@susanmurphy)

By Nicole Brudos Ferrara Colorectal cancer begins when healthy cells in the colon or rectum develop mutations, or changes, in their DNA. These damaged cells then become cancerous, grow and divide uncontrollably, and form a tumor. Genetic factors play a role in this process. Some gene mutations passed through generations of your family can increase […]

Identifying hereditary cancer risk: genetic testing can lead to better screening, earlier treatment

By Sharon Rosen Sharon Rosen (@sharonhrosen)

Do you have family members who have been diagnosed with gastrointestinal, breast or ovarian cancer? According to a recent Mayo Clinic study, nearly 5% to 10% of these cancers can be hereditary. That’s why it is important to share your family medical history with your physician, who can determine if you and your family members […]

Colon cancer awareness: A new era in cancer detection and treatment

By Susan Buckles Susan Buckles (@susanbuckles)

March is Colorectal Cancer Awareness Month, a time to focus on one of the most common and preventable forms of cancer. Mayo Clinic is applying a new genomic lens to colorectal and other cancers to identify which are the types that run in families. The answer to that could open new treatment options and also […]
